Hydrogen Fuel Cell

  • Based on the standard Xcelsior CHARGE™ platform with the only significant change being the fuel cell mounting, connections and related software
  • The hydrogen fuel cell can extend the range of a battery-electric bus by up to 300 miles on a single charge
  • Robust design with safety and reliability as a top consideration
  • Hydrogen is clean, abundant and can be produced from sources such as natural gas or renewable sources like wind or solar energy
  • Save 100-160 tons of greenhouse gas per year compared to a 40’ diesel bus and 75-110 tons compared to a 40’ diesel-hybrid bus
  • The only emission from the tailpipe is water vapor that is clean enough to drink
  • It takes approximately 3 - 12 minutes to refill a fuel cell bus (depending on operating conditions)
