FCEV, alliance between the Big Mobility


A strategic agreement arrives between Daimler, a German manufacturer of cars and means of transport for themilitary and civilian employment as well as, expert in financial services, Renault-Nissan is Ford. The purpose? Accelerate the marketing of electric vehicles to fuel cells, the so-called vehicles FCEV. We have already explained to you how one works fuel cell, well, now the big players in mobility have formed an alliance to push the accelerator together, at full throttle? No, I think they will have to elaborate another way of saying ...

The companies mentioned have signed a triple agreement to collaborate in the development of a common system, based on the technology of fuel cells; this system will favor the diffusion of zero-emission vehicles. The agreement allows companies to significantly reduce investment costs, but this will also mean a reduction competition and almost no diversification of the offer.

When is the debut of electric cars set a fuel cells?
The date is not that far off. It is expected that the outcome of the collaboration will bring the first concrete results already in the first half of 2017. The synthesis of this alliance will be the launch of the first FCEV vehicle, acronym for Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (electric vehicle with fuel cells). The FCEV vehicle it will be the first in the world to be accessible to a mass market.

The investment will be equally divided between the three companies, the alliance was necessary to reduce the investment costs normally associated with the engineering of these technologies.

The initiative links companies from three continents, Europe, America and Asia. The message is clear for suppliers, for the political leaders of nations and for industry: it is necessary to focus on the development of hydrogen filling stations and infrastructures necessary to allow the diffusion of FCEV vehicles on a large scale.

In the FCEV vehicles, the only waste product is water. They are powered by electricity generated by hydrogen and oxygen. They represent the next step of the sustainable mobility and transport a zero emissions. Houses like Hunday, Kia Motors, Honda and Toyota have repeatedly presented vehicles equipped with fuel cells, what is needed now is a massive penetration of these vehicles into the mass market. We hope this new alliance will bring results.
