YUTONG TO TEST FUEL CELL BUSES IN ZHENGZOU
The city of Zhengzhou in China is making progress in the energy transition from diesel and gasoline powered buses to hybrid and full electric buses and then to hydrogen fuel cell buses. Therefore it has started a test with 20 Yutong fuel cell buses.
The first two are performing their services on the roads already. The other 18 fuel cell buses will be delivered by Yutong later thi year as part of a commercial demo operation.
Zhengzhou, situated in Henan province, has already electric buses in operation. The range of these buses is 200 km after charging for two hours. The idea is that the fuel cell buses will give a more efficient operation with a range of 500 km and less than 10 minutes refuelling time. The hydrogen buses will be operated by Zhengzhou Public Transportation Corporation (ZPTC).
