Yutong’s first batch of 25 hydrogen fuel cell buses arrived in Zhangjiakou, Hebei province, earlier this month for delivery to the city in preparation for transportation duties associated with the 24th Winter Olympic Games.
Zhangjiakou aims to create a green Winter Olympics and is committed to taking the lead in applying leading-edge hydrogen fuel cell buses. The delivered vehicles are the 3rd-generation hydrogen fuel cell bus independently developed by Yutong.
The vehicle features zero emission, 500-km driving range and only 10~15 minutes hydrogen refueling time. The vehicle can achieve startup at a temperature as low as -30 °C, which is well adapted to cold weather.
As of July this year, the reliability verification mileage for Yutong hydrogen fuel cell buses has exceeded 90,000 km, effectively verifying the reliability of fuel cell system, hydrogen system, DC/DC voltage converters and integrated vehicle control.
