Safra unveiled the 2nd generation of its hydrogen bus at Busworld

Safra hydrogen bus

SAFRA, a pioneer in hydrogen mobility based in Albi (southern France), is exhibiting for the first time the generation 2 of its hydrogen bus.

Unveiled for the first time at the Busworld exhibition in Brussels on 7 October, this is the latest generation of hydrogen bus manufactured by SAFRA. This brand new model replaces its predecessor, the Businova. During the first 2 days of the show, visitors were already flocking to admire this new zero-emission bus. The least we can say is that its design, its originality in the choice of materials and colours are very appealing.

On the technical side, the HYCITY is available in 2 and 3-door versions with a low, flat floor. The Safra hydrogen bus two electric motors (125 kW) are powered by a 130 kWh battery. The bus also carries a 45 kW fuel cell powered by six tanks fitted on the roof. These can store 35kg of hydrogen at a pressure of 350 bars, providing a range of at least 350 kilometres.

The HYCITY completes the catalogue of carbon-free mobility solutions offered by the company, including the H2-PACK hydrogen retrofit kit for converting diesel coaches into zero-emission vehicles (read our article).

You can admire the HYCITY at the Safra booth, number 955 (Hall 9). As a matter of fact, you might bump into us in one of the corridors there.

Otherwise, the next exhibition of this new model will be at the Rencontres Nationales du Transport Public (RNTP)*. This will take place from 17 to 19 October in Clermont-Ferrand (France).

*French for: National encounters for public transportation
