Nissan Pioneers Fuel-Cell Limo

 

 

23rd February, 2007

2007 Nissan X-Trail FCV

On Monday, 19th February, 2007, Nissan Motor Co Ltd delivered to Kanagawa Toshi Kotsu Ltd. the latest version of the X-Trail fuel-cell vehicle powered by hydrogen fuel cells to be used as part of their chauffeur-driven hire-car fleet. This is the first time that a fuel-cell vehicle has been made available for hire-car services, providing consumers with the opportunity to experience the performance and benefits of advanced clean technology.

Each X-Trail FCV employs an original Nissan fuel-cell stack and compact li-ion batteries capable of delivering the same level of performance as the petrol-powered X-Trail. Nissan's original fuel-cell stack delivers an enhanced power output of up to 90 kilowatts with maximum speed and acceleration on a par with a petrol engine.

Fuel-cell technology provides zero emission motoring - other than water vapor - by using two renewable elements - oxygen and hydrogen gases - that are naturally abundant in the air we breathe. The technology lies in the chemical fusion reaction between the hydrogen fuel and oxygen to release electric energy and water as the only by-product.

Under the Nissan Green Programme 2010, Nissan will offer advanced technology and products to help make real-world reductions in CO2 emissions, including further practical use of fuel-cell vehicles. Since April 2006, Nissan has enabled consumers to experience the performance and benefits of fuel-cell-powered vehicles by making them available for test-drives at the Nissan Gallery located at its head-office in Ginza, Tokyo.
