HYVIA announces new partnership with the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region and new architecture for the Renault Master Van H2-TECH

HYVIA, the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region and HYmpulsion are partnering to initiate, encourage and accelerate the deployment of hydrogen mobility in the region. Created in June 2021, HYVIA is a joint venture equally owned by Renault Group and Plug, a leader in turnkey hydrogen and fuel cell solutions.

HYVIA ia also presenting the new architecture of the Renault Master Van H2-TECH.


As a hydrogen pioneer, the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region has set up substantial subsidies to support the acquisition of hydrogen-powered commercial vehicles, particularly those offered by HYVIA.

The Zero Emission Valley project, co-funded by the European Union and ADEME, has the following objectives: 14 distribution stations, 2 electrolyzers, 400 commercial vehicles, and 80 heavy-duty vehicles, including 50 retrofitted regional coaches.

HYmpulsion is deploying a dense network of more than 15 hydrogen stations in the Region and supports HYVIA in providing close support to its professional customers. The first customer tests began in autumn 2023.

HYVIA will deploy its first fleets in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, with the delivery of around fifty vehicles scheduled for 2024.

Renault Master Van H2-Tech. The new hydrogen van architecture, available in the 2nd quarter of 2024, builds on the strengths of H2-TECH technology and enhances the range:

  • Reduced downtime with less than 5 minutes recharge time.

  • 320 km range in the WLTC cycle, with H2 range maintained 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.

In France, these versions are available with N1 and N2 homologation (compatible with a driving licence). This new architecture completes the current range of Renault Master Van H2-TECH - L3H3, enabling new conversions: workshop, roadside operations, aerial platform, fridge, ladder rack, etc.
