Abstract

A detailed study of future electric vehicle developments has identified an opportunity to use city buses and delivery lorries as a first market for fuel cell traction powerplants. Suitable cells employing a platinum metal catalyst on the electrodes have been developed and a substantial production facility has been set up. Trials with a mobile test bed are continuing and it is anticipated that rapid commercialisation will follow once the system has been fully demonstrated.
