First Hydrogen (FHYD) has unveiled the concept for its revolutionary next generation zero emission vehicle.

The company has designed the light commercial vehicle (LCV) in partnership with global mobility experts EDAG Group with planned hydrogen powered fuel cell electric (FCEV) and battery electric drive train models. The Generation II concepts are in development while First Hydrogen trials its Generation I vehicles. It provides proof of concept for the viability of hydrogen fuel in the commercial vehicle space.

The Generation I FCEVs have entered road trials with members of the UK Aggregated Hydrogen Freight Consortium (AHFC). The trials enable prospective customers and influencers for alternative fuel vehicles to experience the benefits of hydrogen powertrains. The vehicles will be tested across a range of industry sectors including parcel delivery, grocery, utilities, healthcare and roadside assistance. It enables First Hydrogen to trial the vehicles in a variety of real-world operational settings.

Generation II LCV

Presenting the Generation II LCV in an operational environment, the company updated that the modern, minimalist look will ensure the vehicle has longevity and will continue to appeal to the market over extended periods of use. With good ground clearance, a large front windshield, and a spacious, easy-to-access load space, the Generation II design enables high levels of driver comfort, efficient operation and zero emissions.

“Expertly positioned lighting also makes the vehicle visible to other road users. It is an essential safety attribute in built up areas and urban landscapes, or for delivery and service vehicles that need to stop at the roadside.”

First Hydrogen will use data and feedback collected during the trial to optimise the performance of Generation I vehicles and inform the development of future product.
