Stellantis has announced that its Pro One commercial vehicle division will expand its production capabilities in the field of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, with in-house production now commencing on both mid-size vans in Hordain (France) and large vans in Gliwice (Poland), boosting the corporation’s zero-emissions offerings.

Aimed at supporting intensive customer use, the fuel cell versions of the commercial vans build on the technology used in their BEV variants, while adding short refueling times and retaining their payload capability. For the mid-size vans, a second generation of the fuel cell system delivers an estimated range of up to 248 miles (400 km), and a refueling time under four minutes. For the large vans, this fuel cell technology offers a range capability of up to 310 miles (500 km) and a refueling time of five minutes.

Stellantis confirmed that its future line-up of mid-size and large vans produced in house will include fuel cell hydrogen versions of the Citroën ë-Jumpy and ë-Jumper, Fiat Professional E-Scudo and E-Ducato, Opel Vivaro and Movano, and Peugeot E-Expert and E-Boxer. The hydrogen fuel cell technology powering these variants will play a key role in the corporation’s zero-emission propulsion roadmap.
