Stellantis unveils its hydrogen road moap for utility vehicles

stellantis hydrogen strategy

As announced, Stellantis has lifted the veil on its Pro One strategy for utility vehicles and mentioned hydrogen as part of its zero-emission strategy. New models will be available from next year.

Streamed on YouTube, the Stellantis Commercial Vehicle Ambition Day conference revealed a little more about the company’s zero-emission strategy. Xavier Peugeot, Senior vice President of the group’s Commercial Vehicles Business Unit, began by talking about the second generation of electric powertrains. He then moved on to hydrogen. From 2024 onwards, the Group will be expanding its range of hydrogen-powered vehicles.

Stellantis’ hydrogen strategy in details

Luca Marengo, Head of Product for the Commercial Vehicles Division, presented the details. He pointed out that, thanks to its mid-power architecture, Stellantis is able to offer a range of 400 km and a refuelling time of less than 5 minutes. This is the case for the Peugeot Expert, Citroën Jumpy and Opel Vivaro (which have all been restyled). But what’s new is that hydrogen will now also be available for large commercial vehicles. And with a range of 500 km. The models involved are the Citroën Jumper, the Peugeot Boxer, the Opel Movano and the Fiat Ducato. “This will be a first in this segment,” says Luca Marengo.

Incidentally, Fiat will be using hydrogen. This has not been the case until now. And this will also be the case for RAM. In 2025, a large hydrogen van will be offered for delivery fleets in the United States. The offer will inevitably be made under the colours of the American brand. Coming back to Xavier Peugeot’s road map, there will also eventually be a hydrogen-powered pick-up. This will be known as the Heavy Duty Truck. This model will appear after 2025 (2027 or 2028?), probably while the infrastructure is being put in place. By then, the hydrogen hubs recently selected by the White House will be well and truly set up.
