Shanghai (Gasgoo)- On Dec. 28, 2017, the first batch of mass produced hydrogen-powered city buses co-developed by Wuhan Skywell New Energy Automotive Company and Wuhan Tiger Fuel Cell Vehicle Co., Ltd. were launched in Wuhan, capital of Hubei Province.
During the launching ceremony, Wuhan Skywell and Wuhan Tiger signed a strategic cooperation agreement to manufacture and sell 3,000 hydrogen-powered buses dubbed Skywell Tiger over the next two years. The hydrogen-powered buses will be put into use first in Wuhan, and then will be gradually promoted in Shanghai, Nanjing, Shenzhen, Guangzhou and Chengdu, etc. Both parties aim to improve the cultivation and development of China's hydrogen-powered vehicle industry.
The mass produced hydrogen-powered bus model comes with Tiger's hydrogen battery engine, boasting a range of more than 450km with hydrogen-refueling within 3 to 5 minutes and a hydrogen consumption of no more than 5.2 kg/100km. The 8.5-meter bus, which can carry 56 passengers, features Skywell's typical neat and simple bus style, delivering low noise, low carbon emission, and comfortable and stable driving experience.
With the support of Wuhan Skywell, the hydrogen-powered bus model will be mass produced in Wuhan. Besides, it will be put into pilot operation in the second quarter of 2018 in Wuhan East Lake High-Tech Development Zone, and will be promoted in a large scale, which will help Hubei and even Wuhan to be the leading areas of hydrogen-powered vehicles, and facilitate the development of society, economy and environment for Wuhan.
