‘World’s first’ hydrogen-powered Tuk Tuk unveiled

The hydrogen-powered mobility market continues to grow, with what is said to be the ‘world’s first’ hydrogen fuel cell-powered electric three-wheeler, or Tuk Tuk.

California, US-based Biliti unveiled its FastMile™ on Monday (July 18), which the firm says offers a range of up to 130 miles (209km) and a refuelling time of just three minutes.

The FastMile, which is said to have been tested for more than 6,000 miles (9,656km) on rugged road conditions, also boasts a payload of up to 1,500lbs (680km).

Biliti has said, at a price point of $7 per kilogramme of hydrogen, three-wheel fuel cell electric vehicles achieve price parity with their petrol and diesel counterparts, offering a zero-emission solution to last mile mobility of both people and goods.

Rahul Gayam, CEO of Biliti Electric, commented, “This is a major step towards shaping the future of hydrogen energy and fuel cells for global markets. Thankfully, battery electric vehicles are not the only solution for decarbonising transportation.

“We are transforming the application and commercialisation of hydrogen fuel cells by bringing the technology to compact and affordable vehicles as well.”

The FastMile comes off the back of Biliti’s battery-electric Tuk Tuk, the Taskman™, which according to the company is a popular last-mile delivery vehicle which has been deployed in 15 countries, including Japan, the US, the UK, France, Germany, Kenya, and India.
