Stellantis and Hype Bring Fleet of 50 Fuel Cell Taxis to Paris


Stellantis is also looking with interest at technology linked to hydrogen and, as we know, offers a series of commercial vehicles equipped with a Fuel Cell system. According to the automotive group, this technology is well suited to the intensive use of professionals thanks to the possibility of to be able to fill up with hydrogen in a matter of minutes, reducing vehicle downtime to a minimum.

With the aim of encouraging the adoption of these vehicles, Stellantis and Hype, a independent operator of mobility solutions; fuel, have announced a collaboration agreement that will lead to the to supply of a first batch of 50 Fuel Cell taxis for the city; of Paris, based on the Peugeot e-Expert Hydrogen and Citroen e-Jumpy Hydrogen models.

These vehicles have been adapted not only to be able to offer taxi services but also to be able to accommodate disabled people on board. Therefore, either 5 passengers, one of whom in a wheelchair, or 6 passengers without a wheelchair can board. Both models are manufactured in the Stellantis factory in Hordain, in the French region of Hauts-de-France.

But the collaboration between the two companies does not end there. In fact, Stellantis and Hype will also have the opportunity to play the game. to distribute up to 1000 PRM taxis(models designed to also be able to transport the disabled) run on hydrogen by the end of 2024. However, the potential additional vehicles, Stellantis informs, are linked to obtaining the “Parisian taxi PRM” operating license, currently in the process of introduction by the authorities – French.


Remember that both vehicles have a 100 kW (136 HP) electric motor with 260 Nm of torque. We then have a 45kW Fuel Cell system which is a great choice. able to generate enough power to allow the car to proceed at speed; constant. The 10.5 kWh lithium-ion battery positioned under the front seats guarantees peak power (it offers an additional 90 kW) by intervening when it is needed. increased engine power required, such as during acceleration. The battery can feed the engine by itself in case of hydrogen run out.

Both models also have 3 tanks at 700 bar for a total of 4.4 kg of hydrogen (one full in about 3 minutes ). The overall range reaches 400 km according to the WLTP cycle.
