Why Hydrogen ICE Engines?

There are many similarities between the internal combustion engine running diesel and gasoline and the hydrogen ICE, making them a comfortable transition for OEMs and fleets.

  • An internal combustion engine burns hydrogen much the same way it burns diesel or gasoline.
  • The range and refueling times are comparable.
  • The ICE performs best at consistently high loads with either diesel or hydrogen, making it the ideal solution for long-haul applications.
  • Diesel and hydrogen engines share similar componentry creating scale benefits.

Other vital motivators include that for OEMs, hydrogen engines offer ease of adaptability in heavy-duty applications by utilizing existing vehicle architectures. For fleets, they are a known technology in operation, troubleshooting, maintenance, servicing, and drivability, all offering a high level of familiarity. Moreover, the existing ICE supply chain can be leveraged efficiently for OEMs and fleets.

By leveraging existing technologies and supply chains, the consumer and commercial transportation industry at large can take comfort that the time-tested, reliable ICE can live on with new fuel and purpose.
