The first luxury bus powered by a hydrogen fuel cell has been unveiled in India in a collaboration between Bharat Benz and Reliance Industries. The 14th Clean Energy Ministerial in Goa featured a prototype of this environmentally efficient intercity coach. The bus’s utilization of a modified Bharat Benz chassis is a notable development in environmentally friendly transportation.

The bus intends to satisfy intercity commuter needs while examining hydrogen fuel cell propulsion’s possibilities for future transportation. Furthermore, it provides a 400 km range. However, the major goal is to determine whether using a hydrogen fuel cell as an alternate propulsion technology is possible.

However, despite earlier attempts to implement it, the idea of hydrogen fuel cell technology is still relatively new in India’s transportation industry. However, the first green hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) in India was unveiled by Japanese automaker Toyota in October 2022. Trials to investigate the use of hydrogen as a clean transportation option are now being conducted.

Collaboration in the Development of a Greener Transportation Ecosystem

The International Center for Automotive Technology (ICAT) and Toyota Kirloskar Motor Pvt Ltd are collaborating on a pilot project. The Toyota Mirai is the subject of the project’s analysis and evaluation. It is the most advanced Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) powered by hydrogen in the world. Additionally, it strives to create a Green Hydrogen ecosystem in India and increases awareness of FCEV and Green Hydrogen technology.

Fuel cell electric vehicles that run on hydrogen are regarded as zero-emission options because they only produce water vapor. India is making important strides toward a cleaner and more environmentally friendly future with these efforts. Additionally, it’s critical to promote clean transportation alternatives when automakers and energy firms work together.
