Stellantis has revealed today (April 22) that it is expanding its hydrogen expertise with a new appointment aiming to support the development of its zero-emission mobility solutions.
The company has been progressing its hydrogen fuel cell technology and in April 2021, revealed a hydrogen-powered LCV that would hit European roads by the end of the year.
Adding further expertise to the company’s hydrogen portfolio could be crucial in creating innovative new mobility applications for the market.
