Suzuki Planning to Launch of Fuel Cell Powered

by Saad I. on March 21, 2013

The small vehicle specialist, Motors, is planning to launch cell powered vehicles and soon. This announcement just after the opening of first fuel cell facility in Yokohama, Japan. The facility is a result of joint with the UK based Intelligent and the Suzuki Motors.

The partner-shipping is on basis and has been christened as FC System Corporation. Under the the Intelligent Energy will and provide technical assistance to the Motors for development of air cooled cell system for propulsion in cars and other purposes. The would be later scaled up to fuel cell stacks for use in future vehicles.

The SMILE FC plant, Yokohama, is a joint collaboration between and Intelligent Energy to develop cells for future production and two-wheelers

The fuel cell is not a new It has been already been and used in various applications. The cell uses hydrogen and to generate electricity which is used to drive the on board motors. It is totally clean and no pollution to the environment. Moreover the of oxygen and hydrogen tanks uses less energy for than the amount of CO2 produced by the powered cars.

The refilling is also less cit is required The cell is also used to up the satellites and provide electric at remote places. The first cell vehicle was the 1966 Electrovan with a 120 miles however, vehicle was not practical at all all of the usable space was consumed by the cell stacks and fuel The project was also considered prohibitive thus generating of interest from the other of the time.

Since the 2000s, a renewed has been seen with automakers releasing prototype but to miniaturization of the technology, these are less grumpy and less than the 1966 Chevy

The Suzuki SX4 FCV fuel cell vehicle went under test on the Japanese roads the year 2008

Suzuki is a small vehicle and has a global presence in over 190 Some of the popular models are alto, vitara and jimmy. plans to produce fuel vehicles in the near future.

Besides Suzuki is also considering the fuel cell powered and scooters. The fuel cell Burgman scooter has already the nod from the European authorities for production. This has also made in collaboration with the UK Intelligent Energy and has a claimed of over 100 miles (considering the in the 40mph urban driving

The hydrogen fuel tank has stored underbelly and the scooter weighs 170 kilos.

This is not the first Suzuki has come up with a powered two wheeler. Earlier it a concept “Cross Cage” at the 2007 Tokyo Motor

The futuristic looking bike had a fuel cell technology will be used in the future fuel cell powered two

The Suzuki Cross Cage cell powered bike was unveiled at the 2007 Tokyo Show. Note the cutaway showing the placing of the fuel components

The Intelligent Energy is  UK RD firm that aims to clean technology and assist the giants in technical assistance in low fuel cell systems. specialize in the PEM fuel cells and are actively PEM-electric hybrid power-train for driving the cars of the The fuel cell systems can end on the fossil fuel and help in reduction of carbon dioxide in the by up to 75%.
