Geely readies first fuel cell vehicle
Automotive News China | 2019/6/4

Zhejiang Geely Holding Group introduced a fuel cell bus in Beijing last week, marking the beginning of the largest private Chinese automaker¡¯s venture into the fuel cell vehicle market. 

The vehicle consumes 7.5 kilograms of hydrogen per 100 kilometers. The bus, fully filled with hydrogen, can drive for an entire day in a city, Geely said, without disclosing further details about the vehicle. 

The full cell bus was built by Geely¡¯s commercial vehicle subsidiary in Nanchong of southwest China¡¯s Sichuan province. It will be marketed under the subsidiary¡¯s Yuancheng brand. Yuancheng means long journey.

Aside from commercial fuel cell vehicles, the compny has started developing fuel cell passenger vehicles, Geely added in its blog. 

Geely, China¡¯s largest domestic carmaker, started making commercial vehicles including buses, trucks and delivery bans in 2016. 

In addition to the fuel cell bus, the company unveiled a full-electric bus in Beijing last week. 

For the first four months of 2019, Geely delivered 470,496 passenger vehicles including electric and plug-in hybrid cars, a drop of 9 percent from a year earlier.  

The private automaker does not disclose sales of its commercial vehicles.
