HYVIA unveiling new architecture for Renault Master Van H2-TECH

At SOLUTRANS, the world trade fair for industrial and urban vehicles, from 21-25 November, at Lyon Eurexpo (France), HYVIA will reveal a new architecture for its hydrogen-powered Renault Master Van H2-TECH. This new architecture is a response to the broader needs of professional users, with the introduction of three new versions: L2H2, L3H2 and L3H3.

In addition, based on the New Renault Master unveiled by Renault at SOLUTRANS, HYVIA is developing a future generation of hydrogen-powered vans, available in several versions, to be launched as early as 2025.

The new hydrogen van architecture, available in the second quarter of 2024, enriches H2-TECH technology and features:

  • Reduced downtime with less than 5 minutes refueling time.

  • 320 km of autonomy in the WLTC cycle, with hydrogen autonomy preserved in cold weather.

  • Dual Power architecture for optimized energy efficiency.

  • 3 versions: L2H2 10.4 m3 - L3H2 12.6 m3 - L3H3 14.4 m3.

  • Increased payload up to 1,389 kg.

  • These versions are available with N1 and N2 homologation (e.g. driving with a B license in France).

  • This new architecture completes the current range of Renault Master VAN H2-TECH - L3H3+, enabling new conversions: workshop vehicle, emergency urban intervention, cherry picker, refrigerated vehicle, ladder rack, etc.


Under-body hydrogen storage eliminates the need to raise the floor. The fuel cell system is integrated into the engine compartment./p>

This new generation of hydrogen vans will be produced entirely in the production flow at Renault’s Batilly plant (France), for a ramp-up in volumes. It will benefit from an additional stage of high hydrogen technology produced at the HYVIA site in Flins (France): new-generation fuel cell system and components sourcing in Europe.

HYVIA is a joint venture between Renault Group and Plug Power dedicated to hydrogen mobility (earlier post).
