Iveco Bus E-Way H2 launched at Busworld

The E-Way H2 is a 12-meter-long low-floor city bus equipped with a 310-kW e-motor and a fuel cell system provided by HTWO, a fuel cell system-based hydrogen business brand of Hyundai Motor Group. With four tanks offering a combined storage of 7.8 kg of hydrogen and one 69 kWh battery pack by FPT Industrial, Iveco Group’s brand specialised in powertrain technologies, the vehicle offers a driving range of 450 km under normal operating conditions, Iveco Bus states.

The E-Way H2 allows for both hydrogen refueling and plug-in battery charging. Developed by Iveco Bus, this hybrid mid-power concept not only optimises the way the vehicle is charged, but also helps the on-board battery pack and fuel cell system to achieve their highest efficiency and durability.
