Ford – FCVGen1.0
Exploring new Fuel-Cell possibilities
This project will produce a Ford Transit FCEV demonstrator, incorporating state-of-the-art digital engineering tools to simulate and optimise vehicle systems; including sensitivity studies through the implementation of multiple energy systems.
Ford Transit Fuel-Cell Electric Vehicle
- Reduces dependency of high voltage battery power by installing a Proton-Exchange Membrane (PEM) Fuel-Cell (FC) system and hydrogen fuel system.
- Will offer customer-desired capabilities, above and beyond Battery Electrical Vehicle (BEV) and zero emissions
- Inform Ford and AVL on viability of a FC in Low Carbon Vehicle for larger deployment.
- Total project value £2.4 million, with £1 million funded through the APC
- Ford Motor Company
- AVL Powertrain
