Hannover Messe 2022 : HYVIA presents Renault Master Van H2-TECH
  • After participating in World Hydrogen 2022 in Rotterdam (Netherlands) and HyVolution in Paris (France), HYVIA concludes the month of May with the Hydrogen & Fuel Cells Europe exhibition in Hannover (Germany).
  • These are three strategic markets for HYVIA, which is aiming for a 30% market share in hydrogen-powered light commercial vehicles (LCVs) in Europe by 2030 with the launch of Renault Master H2-TECH: a van, a chassis cab and a bus carrying up to 15 passengers.
  • Created from the expertise of two leaders, Renault Group and Plug Power, HYVIA offers a complete ecosystem for driving on hydrogen: a range of hydrogen-powered LCVs, an H2 refueling station, the production of green hydrogen by electrolyser and also fleet management and maintenance solutions.
  • Meet HYVIA at Hannover Messe on booth C62 (Hall 13), from May 30 to June 2, 2022, with Renault Master Van H2-TECH (12 m3 volume, up to 500 km range), an H2 refueling station and a unique open fuel cell prototype.

After France and Netherlands, we are ending this month of May in Germany! Three markets highly invested in hydrogen mobility, three markets where the key players in the hydrogen sector are bursting with ideas and initiatives, three markets where our HYVIA ecosystem makes sense.

Renault Master Van H2-TECH on the road from mid-2022

Master Van H2-TECH answers the needs of businesses, fleets, and local authorities. It is a big van for the transport of goods and packages, with a loading volume of 12 m3 and a range of up to 500 km. It is equipped with a 30 kW fuel cell, a 33 kWh battery and tanks containing 6 kg of hydrogen (4 tanks of 1.5 kg). Master Van H2-TECH is expected to be on European roads from mid-2022.

Driving on hydrogen with the HYVIA ecosystem

Hydrogen mobility is particularly appropriate today for light commercial vehicles, enabling extended range for high loads and intensive use. The HYVIA range of hydrogen-powered LCVs with zero CO2 emissions* offers an increased range of up to 500 km and a refueling time of 5 minutes. It includes a van version with a loading volume of 12 m³ (Master Van H2-TECH), a chassis cab version with a large volume of 20 m³ (Master Chassis Cab H2-TECH) and a minibus that can carry up to 15 passengers (Master City Bus H2-TECH). HYVIA also offers H2 refueling station, the production of low-carbon hydrogen, maintenance, and fleet management solutions.

HYVIA: a French brand of high technology

HYVIA is based in France on four sites. The head office, engineering and R&D center are located in Villiers-Saint-Frédéric. Renault Master is produced at the Batilly plant. Electric and hydrogen integration is provided by PVI, a Renault Group subsidiary, at Gretz-Armainvilliers. Finally, the HYVIA plant in Flins assembles and tests fuel cells based on Plug Power's leading technology. At the end of 2022, the plant will also start assembling H2 refueling stations and the production of low-carbon hydrogen with a first 1MW electrolyzer.

HYVIA will meet the players of the hydrogen industry on its booth to also discover its unique fuel cell prototype illustrating its functioning and the hydrogen flows.
