US consortium to develop hydrogen-powered shuttle buses

A consortium, led by US-based A-1 Alternative Fuel Systems is set to develop hydrogen fuel cell electric shuttle buses to be operated by a Californian public transit authority.

The two buses will be built on the chassis of a Ford E-450 and a Ford F-53, which will integrate fuel cell and electric propulsion systems from Ideanomic’s subsidiary, US Hybrid, while A-1 will provide fuel storage and delivery systems.

Set to be developed at facilities in Wisconsin and Indiana, US, A-1 has said its systems will utilise Luxfer Gas Cylinders’ Type-3 hydrogen tanks, suitable for use at 120oC.
