Stellantis Pro One starts in-house production of mid- and large-size hydrogen fuel cell vans in Europe

Stellantis Pro One commercial vehicle lineup is starting in-house production of both mid-size and large hydrogen fuel cell vans in Hordain (France) and Gliwice (Poland), respectively, boosting the company’s zero-emissions offerings.

In October 2023, the Company unveiled a full revamp of the van lineup as a key element of the Pro One strategic offensive for Stellantis’ Commercial Vehicles Business. Stellantis and its brands are leveraging a full range of advanced electrified propulsion, safety, ADAS and connectivity technologies

Stellantis Pro One has a strong commercial vehicle manufacturing footprint to support its European leadership with the sites of Mangualde (Portugal), Vigo (Spain), and Ellesmere Port (UK) for K9 compact vans, Hordain (France) and Luton (UK) for K0 mid-size vans, and Atessa (Italy) and Gliwice (Poland) for large-size vans.

The action to bring hydrogen fuel cell mid-size vans and add fuel cell large vans to our production lines is a proof point of our commitment to maintain the lead in cutting-edge hydrogen technology and make it available to our most demanding customers.

—Jean-Michel Billig, Stellantis Chief Technology Officer, Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicle Development

Aimed at supporting intensive customer use, the fuel cell versions of the commercial vans build on the technology used in the zero-emission BEV variants of the vehicles, with the added advantages of short refueling times and no sacrifice of payload capability.

For the mid-size vans, a second generation of the fuel cell system delivers a segment record range of up to 400 km and refueling time of less than four minutes. For the large vans, the addition of fuel cell technology brings range capability of up to 500 km and refueling time of just five minutes.

Stellantis will have eight fuel cell hydrogen versions of mid-size and large vans produced in-house: Citroën ë-Jumpy and ë-Jumper, Fiat Professional E-Scudo and E-Ducato, Opel/Vauxhall Vivaro and Movano, and Peugeot E-Expert and E-Boxer.

In 2023, Stellantis became an equal one-third shareholder in Symbio, a leading hydrogen technology company with operations in Europe and the United States.
