Plug Power and the Renault Group have today (June 3) launched a joint venture to market turnkey hydrogen mobility solutions, including fuel cell-powered-light commercial vehicles and the supporting infrastructure, in Europe.
Called HYVIA, a contraction of ‘HY’ for hydrogen and the Latin word “VIA” for road, the joint venture has said its first hydrogen vehicles brought to market will be based on the Renault Master platform and should be available in Europe, accompanied with the deployment of charging stations and the supply of green hydrogen, by the end of 2021.
Delivering on this, HYVIA’s process, manufacturing and logistics teams will be based in Flins, France, as part of the Re-Factory project. The company’s head office, as well as the R&D teams, will be located at Villiers-Saint-Frédéric, France, with the light commercial vehicle engineering and development centre for Renault Group.
