The 12-meter hydrogen-powered buses will be operated by ESWE Verkehr, the public transport operator of Wiesbaden, on the routes 16 and 17. As a mobility service provider for the state capital Wiesbaden, ESWE Verkehr pursues the goal of locally emission-free public transport. The new and emission-free fuel cell buses are an important part of the clean air plan for the state capital Wiesbaden.
The ten 2-door H2.CityGold units will be equipped with a Toyota fuel cell, a small battery pack with 44 kWh capacity and a Siemens power train with 180 kW peak power.
