Pushing its requirement to drastically reduce the local emissions of its vehicles ever further, PEUGEOT has become one of the very first manufacturers to offer in series production, from 2021 onwards, in the compact utility van segment, in addition to its combustion and battery electric models, an electric version powered by a hydrogen fuel cell.
The new PEUGEOT e-EXPERT Hydrogen has therefore become the latest symbol of the brand’s “Extended power of choice” strategy, which gives each customer the option to choose from a wide range of engines, the one that is best suited to his or her own use.
The hydrogen fuel cell electric version is testament to the rapid deployment of the Peugeot EXPERT range’s electrified offering. After the introduction in 2020 of the battery-powered e-EXPERT model, which was voted International Van of the Year in early 2021 and is the sixth PEUGEOT vehicle to win this prestigious award since 1992.
The new PEUGEOT e-EXPERT Hydrogen includes a new “mid-power plug-in hydrogen fuel cell electric” system, innovative and specific to STELLANTIS, made up of :
- A fuel cell which produces the electricity needed to drive the vehicle thanks to the hydrogen on board the tank,
- A high-voltage lithium-ion rechargeable battery with a capacity of 10.5 kWh that can be recharged from the electricity grid and which also powers the electric engine during certain driving phases.
The new PEUGEOT e-EXPERT Hydrogen stands out with:
- Its ability to cover all distances without local CO2 emissions,
- Its ability to fill up with hydrogen in 3 minutes for a range of over 400 km in the WLTP homologation cycle (currently undergoing approval),
- A charging socket for the high-voltage battery,
- 2 lengths available (Standard and Long) with the same loading volume characteristics as the diesel and battery electric versions,
- Up to 6.1m³ load volume,
- Up to 1100 kg payload,
- Up to 1000 kg towing capacity.
The new PEUGEOT e-EXPERT Hydrogen will first be offered to our professional customers (direct sales), in France and Germany, from the end of 2021. It will be produced in France, in Valenciennes, and then transformed in the Stellantis competence centre dedicated to hydrogen technology in Germany, in Rüsselsheim.
