Hydrogen fuel cell cars available for testing

Further information and contact

Since the opening of the first hydrogen fuelling station in Innsbruck in may 2015 five emission-free vehicles are already out on Tyrol’s streets. The Hyundai ix35 FCEV (Fuel Cell Electricity Vehicle) is the world’s first hyrogen electrically powered vehicle which has gone into serial production. Private people or companies who are interested in this new technology can rent one.

Test and experience this new technology! Rent prices promoted by the tyrolean government:

Emission-free en route

The hydrogen-powered vehicle has an excellent environmental balance. Nothing but steam is coming out of the exhaust pipe and hence not a single gram of CO2. Compared to conventional electrically powered vehicles fuel-filling is easy and fast and the cruising range is higher.

Hydrogen Technology as a part of Tyrol’s energy strategy

According to Tyrol’s governmental program of 2013 the focus within the framework of Tyrol’s energy, climate and resource strategy should be on the economical handling of energy, the increase of efficiency and the substitution of fossil energy carriers. Until 2050 they want to be CO2 free and energy-autonomous. Hydrogen technology should contribute significantly in the field of traffic.

EU-Project HyFIVE

Wasser Tirol representing the government of Tyrol and under supervision of IIT Bozen (Institute For Innovative Technologies) is involved in the EU-project HyFIVE (Hydrogen For Innovative Vehicles) which is following the introduction of hydrogen-powered vehicles in Europe. After South Tyrol also North Tyrol created a demonstration project for the reconstruction of mobility, starting with the vehicles and the filling station in Innsbruck. The plan is to build a „hydrogen highway“ in the so called „Green Corridor“ between Munich and Carpi to enable an emission free traffic across the alps that’s as emission-free as possible.
