Researching and developing hydrogen fuel-cell electric vehicles since 2004, Microcab used the support from the Advanced Propulsion Centre and Niche Vehicle Network to explore new technologies.

Through the project Microcab explored the integration of a new drivetrain, applying new electric motor and other technologies into their base system. The funding received allowed Microcab to take on the research & development in the project in a shorter time-scale than they would have otherwise been capable of.
