HYVIA, the joint venture between Renault Group and Plug Power dedicated to hydrogen mobility, participated for the first time in the World Hydrogen Summit & Exhibition 2022 in Rotterdam with a hydrogen-powered Renault Master van to show visitors.

The Renault Master Van H2-TECH is a 12 m³ hydrogen van with a loading volume of 12 m3 to meet the needs of companies, large businesses, fleets, and local collectivities. The Renault Master Van H2-TECH is equipped with a 30 kW fuel cell, a 33 kWh battery and tanks containing 6 kg of hydrogen (4 tanks of
1.5 kg). The HYVIA booth will also have an H2 refueling station.

Since its creation in June 2021, HYVIA has developed a portfolio of three hydrogen-powered light commercial vehicles: a van, a city bus and a chassis cab; as well as an ecosystem of turnkey solutions for hydrogen mobility (H2 refueling stations, hydrogen production and associated services). The first vehicles are expected to be on the road from mid-2022.

HYVIA is based in France. Its ambition is to reach a 30% market share of light commercial H2 vehicles in Europe by 2030.

“The HYVIA team will move to Rotterdam to take part in this major international event, the World
Hydrogen Summit, with the ambition of reinforcing its links with the local actors of the Dutch hydrogen
sector. The Netherlands is a pioneer country for hydrogen initiatives in Europe and is one of the strategic
markets for HYVIA’s development in Europe,” said David Holderbach, CEO HYVIA.

HYVIA is a contraction of HY for “hydrogen” and the Latin word VIA for “road”. IT offers a complete and
unique ecosystem of turnkey solutions: three hydrogen vehicles, H2 refueling stations, decarbonized
hydrogen production, maintenance, and fleet management solutions.

The advantages of the HYVIA portfolio of hydrogen-powered light commercial vehicles: zero CO2 emissions*, an increased range of up to 500 km and a fast-fueling time of 5 minutes. It is composed of a van version with a loading volume of 12 m³ (Master Van H2-TECH), a minibus that can carry up to 15 passengers (Master City Bus H2-TECH) and a chassis cab version with a large volume of 20 m³ (Master Chassis Cab H2-TECH).
