Geely New Energy Commercial Vehicle Group’s (GCV) subsidiary brand, Yuan Cheng, has launched two new zero-emission buses, the F12 hydrogen fuel cell bus and C11 pure electric bus.
The F12 is Geely’s first commercial vehicle which utilises hydrogen fuel cell technology. The bus can run over 500km after ten minutes of refuelling.
Yuan Cheng provides a range of pure electric, range extended, hydrogen, and methanol smart buses between 6 and 12 meters long.
The hydrogen F12 bus was developed by GVC in response to China’s national new energy policy and as part of Geely’s continuing R&D into fuel cell technologies.
The F12 adopts fuel cell stack technology. In operational tests, the bus has an energy consumption rate of 7.5kg of hydrogen per 100km.
“Geely New Energy Commercial Vehicle Group has been positioned as a technology leader in the field of new energy commercial vehicles since its conception,” said Lin Xiaohu, Deputy General Manager of Geely New Energy Commercial Vehicle Group.
“We will always strive to create the safest, greenest, most energy-efficient refined vehicles in the world.”
