Iveco Group and Hyundai Motor Company today (6th October) unveiled the first Iveco Bus E-Way H2 at Busworld 2023 in Brussels.

This new hydrogen-powered fuel cell electric bus is another concrete result of the partnership the two companies announced in March 2022 and reflects their commitment to accelerate the transition towards net zero carbon mobility and transport. The new model will expand the Iveco Bus zero-emission solutions for cities.

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.
