Fuel cell fleets: vehicle fleets worldwide are choosing hydrogen with NEXO a top pick.
30 October, 2020
Canadian car share company, Modo added two NEXO’s to its fleet in 2019.
These vehicles are available for consumers to use and provide complete access to FCEVs, allowing Canadians to learn about and experience this technology firsthand.
“We are excited to be the first car share to offer consumers the opportunity to experience a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle for themselves” Patrick Nangle, CEO of Modo.
The Vancouver based vehicles fill up at the city’s public refueling station located in the Marpole neighborhood.
NEXO for police.
The police in Bolzano, Italy are already using the NEXO predecessor, the ix35 as a patrol car.
Recently they expanded their FCEV fleet and added the NEXO for emissions-free patrolling on the polluted Brenner Autostrada.
The NEXO is also being used by police forces in England and, more recently, Germany.
Surrey Police in south-east England have one NEXO in their fleet. Meanwhile, the police force in Osnabrück, Germany, also recently brought a NEXO police car into service, making their mobility even greener.
NEXO for government.
Earlier this year, Hyundai expanded its partnership with the US Department of Energy (DOE) and will provide five NEXOs for use in various regions of the country including Washington, DC.
The vehicles will be used for research, training and workforce development within the DOE and its agencies.
Hyundai and the US Federal Government’s cooperation in hydrogen and fuel cell technologies dates back to 2004, when together with our affiliate Kia Motors Corporation we offered 33 fuel cell vehicles to the DOE.
