During the European Hydrogen Week, HYVIA unveils new architecture of Renault Master Van H2-TECH at the Solutrans motor show

"HYVIA accelerates its dynamic. HYVIA has successfully completed its creation and strategic start-up phase. HYVIA is going to succeed in its development phase. As pioneers of hydrogen mobility, we are going to develop this exciting project, backed by a passionate team, a unique ecosystem dedicated to hydrogen mobility, and the expertise of our two shareholders: Renault Group, a major player in the automotive industry, and Plug, world leader in hydrogen and fuel cell solutions. At SOLUTRANS, we are unveiling a new H2 architecture and preparing a new generation of hydrogen-powered vans. Together, we'll be going even further, to achieve our goal of a 30% share of the hydrogen light commercial vehicle market by 2030."

RENAULT MASTER VAN H2-TECH: a new architecture for even more professional needs

A new hydrogen van architecture, available in the 2nd quarter of 2024, which takes up the advantages of H2-TECH technology and enriches the offer

  • Zero emissions.
  • Reduced downtime with less than 5 minutes refueling time.
  • 320 km of autonomy in the WLTC cycle, with H2 autonomy preserved in cold weather.
  • Dual Power architecture for optimized energy efficiency.
  • 3 versions: L2H2 10.4 m3 - L3H2 12.6 m3 - L3H3 14.4 m3.
  • Increased payload up to 1,389 kg.
  • These versions are available with N1 and N2 homologation (e.g. driving with a B license in France).
  • This new architecture completes the current range of Renault Master VAN H2-TECH - L3H3+, enabling new conversions: workshop vehicle, emergency urban intervention, cherry picker, refrigerated vehicle, ladder rack, etc.

More seamless integration to meet professionals needs when it comes to load volume, payload heights and lengths, and interior & exterior fittings

  • Under-body hydrogen storage with no need to raise the floor.
  • A fuel cell integrated into the engine compartment.
  • An electrical storage in the loading area (0.4 m3).

RENAULT MASTER VAN H2-TECH – VERSION L3H3+: a version already on the road, adapted to intensive deliveries - Test drives at SOLUTRANS

  • This hydrogen powered van is available for test drives behind Hall 4 at SOLUTRANS.
  • This version is on the road since early 2023 and is still available to order.
  • Zero emissions, 405 km of autonomy with H2 autonomy preserved in cold weather, 5 minutes of refueling time.
  • With a payload of 1 tonne, a volume of 12 m3 and a loading height of 1.80 m, this van is ideally suited to intensive usages mainly for logistics needs.
  • And Dutch customers have been on the road since October 2023.

NEW RENAULT MASTER H2-TECH: for a future generation of hydrogen-powered vans in 2025

  • HYVIA is developing a future generation of hydrogen-powered vans based on the New Renault Master unveiled by Renault at SOLUTRANS. It will be launched in 2025.
  • This new platform will be gradually developed into a full range of versions.
  • This new generation of H2 vans will be produced entirely in the production flow at Renault's Batilly plant (France), for a ramp-up in volumes.
  • It will benefit from an additional stage of high hydrogen technology produced at the HYVIA site in Flins (France): new-generation fuel cell system and components sourcing in Europe.

COMPLETE HYDROGEN ECOSYSTEM, by HYVIA, to support customers  

Refueling solutions to initiate a sustainable H2 ecosystem: HYWELL™ by HYVIA, in partnership with Atawey.

  • In partnership with Atawey, HYVIA offers its customers, or an ecosystem of customers, a range of stations that can be installed for their own use: HYWELL™.
  • With a capacity of 100 kg / day of H2 distribution, this refueling station can supply 20 to 25 vehicles, with a filling time of just a few minutes.
  • The HYWELL™ station can be deployed quickly and easily on the most constrained installation sites thanks to its Compact & Plug & Play architecture.
  • This offering has been specifically developed to prime decarbonized hydrogen mobility ecosystems: investment and operating costs are scaled to the size of a fleet.

Financing solutions: HYVIA Financial Services.

  • HYVIA has developed a financing offer tailored to the needs of its customers, depending on their usage, country, region, and applicable purchase subsidies.
  • Available by the end of 2023, this complete financing solution is one of the pillars of the HYVIA ecosystem, as it will offer a turnkey solution combining vehicles, maintenance and H2 supply.
  • HYVIA will integrate into its financing offer the subsidies available in each territory.

H2 after-sales on the move

  • After-sales for hydrogen-powered vehicles is strategic and relies on the Renault Pro+ network's growing expertise in this pioneering technology.
  • The European roll-out strategy is based on four pillars: increasing the H2 skills of qualified personnel, adapting the infrastructure to enable work to be carried out in complete safety, developing specific tools and supplying spare parts.
  • To ensure the after-sales of its hydrogen-powered vehicles, pioneering dealerships are already supporting the H2 mobility offered by HYVIA: Renault Rungis and Renault Lyon Sud in France, and Stam Amersfoort, Terwolde Groningen, Bochane Arnhem and Van Mossel Rotterdam in the Netherlands.
