Hyvia: Renault’s spearhead for commercial vehicles

Hyvia: The spearhead for LCVs at Renault

During the introduction of its new organisation, the French manufacturer mentioned commercial vehicles. And the subsidiary in charge of developing hydrogen was referred to be a disruptive project capable of meeting the needs of an ever-changing market.

Renault Group’s LCV (light commercial vehicle) activity is based on solid foundations with a European fleet of more than 5 million vehicles, an ecosystem comprising over 600 Pro+ dealers, 4 factories and the most recent range by 2026. While the manufacturer is banking on connected vehicles to meet customers’ expectations, it is also promoting fuel cells.

Hyvia (the joint venture between the Renault Group and Plug) offers mobility with decarbonised hydrogen, with a range of solutions combining fuel cell vehicles and hydrogen recharging, including the electrolyser. The company is targeting 30% of the hydrogen LCV market in Europe by 2030. And it has a cumulative order book of 1 billion euros in 2026 (about $1.02 billion).
