Bosch believes in hydrogen cars

On its stand at the IAA Mobility, the German group is presenting a demonstrator incorporating its technologies. Hydrogen is one of them.

In the absence of Toyota and Hyundai, BMW is the only manufacturer to present a hydrogen-powered vehicle. The iX5 Hydrogen is positioned right next to the Neue Klasse concept, which heralds the future platform on which the Group’s future electric vehicles will be developed. And there will be more in the future.

Bosch explains that the market is starting today with vans and trucks. But because of the volumes involved, we will gradually be moving towards a modular solution. It will then be possible to offer affordable fuel cells for private vehicles. For the German equipment manufacturer, technologies should not be pitted against one another. Battery electrics and hydrogen are complementary. “It’s a bit like diesel and petrol,” one expert told us. “The two have coexisted and have made it possible to meet different needs,” he continued.

Communicating on a car is new for the group. And it’s highly symbolic. Like Plastic Omnium, but also Forvia, Bosch believes that hydrogen will be used in cars within a few years.

First as an end-of-study internship, then as Marketing & Communication Manager and translator at Hydrogen Today.
