Citroën is enlarging its range of electrified commercial vehicles and it has recently delivered the first ë-Jumpy hydrogen to Suez Group.
A milestone in the electrification strategy of Citroën, benefitting from huge investment plans in France and in Germany.
The hydrogen solution addresses those who need an autonomy exceeding 300 km for long travels or long journeys and call for a fast recharge to maximise the use time.
Ë-Jumpy Hydrogen is equipped with two complementary propulsion systems: a battery that stores energy and supplies electricity and a fuel cell that converts the hydrogen and oxygen of the air into electricity, water and heat. Until it is hydrogen-powered, the energy generator operates in continuous.
Therefore, the electric motor, mainly powered by the 45-kW hydrogen cell, can develop an autonomy extended by almost 350 km. 10.5 kWh lithium-ion battery acts as a reserve for an autonomy of 50 km in the WLTP cycle. Citroën ë-Jumpy Hydrogen has a range of over 400 km. Its three 700 bar carbon-fibre hydrogen tanks, which sit next to the battery under the front seats, can be filled in just three minutes.
CITROËN ë-Jumpy Hydrogen, assembled in France in SevelNord factory, is transformed into the competence centre on the hydrogen fuel cell by Stellantis Group in Russelsheim, in Germany.
