Testing will soon begin on the company's zero-emissions prototype, which will eventually be commercially released
Scottish zero-emissions commercial vehicle manufacturer Hydrogen Vehicle Systems (HVS) is delivering an engineering prototype ‘mule’ to its facilities, it announced this week.
The X1.5 is set to be used for functionality and systems development for a number of tests, as the company looks to develop the UK’s first full-sized hydrogen heavy goods vehicle (HGV).
It contains the same hydrogen fuel cell that is set to be used in the production HGVs, which will help in the creation of track testing prototypes.
The delivery of the X1.5 is a major milestone for HVS, following a successful public launch of its HGV technology earlier this year.
HVS chief technical officer John McKenna welcomes the delivery of the prototype X1.5 to the company’s test facility.
“The team and I are thrilled that the X1.5 engineering prototype has arrived at our test facility, and we can now begin the vital development phase of testing the hydrogen fuel-cell technology on the dyno-rig,” he says.
“Maximising the performance of the fuel cell is a key step ahead of beginning on-track testing and bringing this exciting new HGV to market.”
HVS’ technology demonstrator offered a range of up to 370 miles and a refuelling time of approximately 20 minutes, which it describes as class-leading.
Founded in 2017, the company is aiming towards creating trucks that can meet non-zero emissions by 2040.
