Proton Motor achieves a significant reduction in operating costs in the field of e-mobility

Fuel cells revolutionise local transport and logistics

(PresseBox) (Puchheim, ) With our latest development in the high performance range we achieve the same operating costs as diesel hybrid vehicles. Proton Motor is already in negotiation with leading bus and truck manufacturers. "We are not yet able to reveal names. We can, however, say that this is a very exciting development. The entire bus and logistics industries are target markets for us. Vehicles using our system are completely emissions free. This enables us to come a big step closer to our aim of improved quality of life in our cities. The implementation of the new technology can now proceed apace. We are anticipating a vigorous response." says Thomas Melczer, responsible for business development at Proton Motor.

The drive system is based on the HyRange fuel cell system combined with a battery. This system meets demands in respect of range, payload and costs, with zero emissions and low-noise drive.

The hydrogen based HyRange-Extender for electrical battery-driven commercial vehicles and buses provides additional energy for areas of application for which the existing battery capacity is not sufficient enough. The system was developed as a modular solution in order to ensure a broad range of applications for various platforms. The only emission produced during operation is a small amount of clean, warm water. No harmful substances are produced.

Visit Proton Motor and the HyRange from September 30th to October 2nd 2013 at the f-cell trade fair in Stuttgart, booth: 2E20 as well as Ride & Drive
