Citroën ë-Dispatch Hydrogen, a combination of batteries and hydrogen fuel cells

ë-Dispatch Hydrogen concludes our range of light commercial vehicles. With a combination of hydrogen fuel cell and battery architecture, our vans boast the best of both technologies... The components have been integrated according to an ingenious design so that size does not affect the load capacity, which is an important factor for professionals in this field. ë-Dispatch Hydrogen caters to professional needs and applications with a range of over 400 km, reduced impact of outside air temperature on range, a charging time of only 3 minutes, and the ability to recover more energy during deceleration. – Lawrence Hansen – Citroën Product and Strategy Director

Innovation for professionals

Since 1928, Citroën has been constantly innovating to adapt to changes in society and provide professionals with greater peace of mind and ease of use in their day-to-day work. To meet new environmental and social challenges, Citroën will introduce new energy in 2021. ë-Dispatch Hydrogen and the new concept of My Ami Cargo form the most complete range of appliances on the market.

New Energy: Citroen Jumpy Moves to Hydrogen

Citroën uses hydrogen technology to complement the range of electric LCVs to meet the needs of 8% of businesses that need to travel more than 300 km or do not have time to charge their vehicles during the day. I am. Therefore, the brand range meets all the needs of the segment.

ë-Dispatch Hydrogen, an electric van with a fuel cell and a rechargeable battery, was the first Citroën to carry this form of energy. It supports this new technology while maintaining effective capacity and load capacity. This practical new model has a range of over 400 km *, and three 700-bar carbon fiber hydrogen tanks, located next to the battery under the front seats, can be filled in just three minutes. With zero CO2 Self-employed professionals and merchants have complete freedom to use regulated urban roads.

* Range determined according to the methodology of the WLTP test procedure (R (EC) No.715 / 2007, R (EU) No.2017 / 1151)

ë-Dispatch Hydrogen is completely electric and benefits from two energy sources: as a 45 kW fuel cell and a 50 km reserve that consumes and generates hydrogen stored at a pressure of 700 bar in a 3-cylinder tank. A working 10.5 kWh battery. Automatically over when the hydrogen tank is empty. Hydrogen fuel cells ensure the cruising range of the vehicle. Batteries are needed during transitional stages such as strong acceleration and gradients, and require extra power. These two energy sources combine to fuel the motor and power the drivetrain. The battery, which regenerates energy during deceleration, is automatically charged with the electricity generated by the hydrogen fuel cell to ensure a sufficient amount of charge. You can also charge it using a cable at the charging station of an electric vehicle.

Produced at our SevelNord plant and converted at the Stellantis Group’s Hydrogen Fuel Cell R & D Center in Rüsselsheim, Germany.

Available in two sizes, M (4.95m) and XL (5.30m), which will be the first arrival ë-Dispatch The delivery of hydrogen to fleet customers is scheduled for fall 2021.

Shitoroen launched a wide range of offensives in the field of light commercial vehicles and in 2021 proposed a fully electrified range in the European market. This is up to 26% compared to 2020. But Citroen doesn’t step into it. True to its willingness to be inspired by experts and its usage, the provision of a complete electric battery van joins the hydrogen version of Citroën ë-Jumpy. This new technology is suitable for customers who drive long distances on a regular basis or who need faster charging. Citroën thus offers a variety of electric LCV offers to professionals to ensure they operate in a sustainable manner in response to increasing usage, environmental issues and restricted access to urban areas.
