Containing 5kg of hydrogen at 350 bars and with up to 12 hours of autonomy, the storage systems will be developed and produced by Faurecia at its global center of expertise in Bavans dedicated to hydrogen tanks.

Delivery of these systems will begin in 2020 for two types of Gaussin vehicles: 

  • The ATM-H2, used for transport in logistics centers with a traction capacity of 38 tonnes,
  • The APM-H2, suited to ports, with a towing capacity of up to 75 tonnes.

The launch this week of our first hydrogen-powered vehicles is an important step in Gaussin's strategy to offer a full range of zero CO2 emission vehicles. Long seen as a technology for the day after tomorrow, the hydrogen-energy industry is gaining momentum and we are proud to be contributing to its future in partnership with a major French group such as Faurecia.

Hydrogen Fuel Cell powertrains are perfectly suited to an intensive use case in vehicles that require high power and a long autonomy at zero emissions. This French partnership, with its global impact, is therefore an important step in Faurecia's hydrogen strategy to offer zero-emission solutions for commercial vehicles, off-road and industrial applications.
