First Hydrogen Corp. (FHYD) showcased its hydrogen fuel cell-powered light commercial vehicles (LCV) in operation at the HORIBA MIRA Proving Ground, UK.

This video shows the LCVs in operation during their initial test runs, one in fuel-cell and one in battery electric mode.

The vehicles are certified for road use in the United Kingdom (UK). Fleet trials with major UK operators are scheduled for January 2023.

A total of 14 fleet operators in various industries are engaged to participate in the trials through the UK Aggregated Hydrogen Freight Consortium (AHFC).

First Hydrogen’s next-generation vehicle platform is the culmination of 18 months of work by First Hydrogen’s Automotive team. It represents a major step forward for the company by providing zero emission, compelling range, payload and overall total cost of ownership for the light commercial vehicle segment.

The company’s commercial vehicle strategy is focused on supplying zero-emission LCVs to the UK, European Union, United States and Canada. The global light commercial vehicle market is projected to reach $786.5 billion by 20301. These vehicles, together with the company’s Hydrogen-as-a-Service (HaaS) solution, which supplies green hydrogen fuel, distribution and complementing vehicle management services, will help the sector meet zero-emission targets.

Steve Gill, CEO of Automotive for First Hydrogen Limited, commented on the news.

“We believe that our next-generation LCVs represent a holistic solution for commercial fleet operators needing to go green and cost-effectively run their business. We are very excited with our new designs and look forward to sharing these soon.”

Balraj Mann, Chairman & CEO of First Hydrogen, added,

“Our automotive team, led by Steve Gill, has made significant progress in the past 18 months, which started off as a conceptual idea and two agreements (with Ballard Power and AVL Powertrain) to having our LCVs successfully complete a track run. And within weeks, we will unveil our new next-generation LCV. This is an exciting and proud time for our company.”

First Hydrogen Corp. is a Vancouver and London UK-based company focused on zero-emission vehicles, green hydrogen production and distribution and supercritical carbon dioxide extractor systems. The company is designing and building hydrogen-fuel-cell-powered light commercial demonstrator vehicles (“LCV”) under two agreements with AVL Powertrain and Ballard Power Systems Inc.

First Hydrogen Corp. (FHYD) opened trading at C$4.25.
