Volvo Cars starts of fuel cells to extend the car’s operating range

27 2010

Volvo Cars is now the next step towards electric car technology. Backed by support from the Swedish Agency the company is initiating of a fuel cell that can the electric car’s operating without any carbon dioxide The aim is to have two prototype chassis on the Volvo C30 DRIVe Electric for testing in everyday traffic in

This is an exciting expansion of our on electrification. Battery cost and means that all-electric still have a relatively operating range. Fuel may be one way of extending the distance these can cover before they to be recharged.

What is more, the gives us increased knowledge fuel cells and hydrogen says Volvo Cars and CEO Stefan Jacoby.

Volvo Cars is working with the company Powercell AB on this project. In the first a preliminary study is being into what is known as a Extender, which consists of a cell with a reformer. The of the reformer is to break down a fuel, in this case and create hydrogen gas.

In the fuel cell, this gas is converted into electrical which is used to power the electric motor.

The technology electricity completely without any of carbon oxide (CO), oxides (NOx), sulphur (SOx) and particles. Due to the highly process, emissions of carbon (CO2) are significantly reduced with a conventional vehicle. The end are electricity, water and a small of carbon dioxide.

The technology also can be adapted for fuels

Significantly increased range

This technology is to increase the electric car’s range by up to 250 kilometres — in to the range provided by the car’s pack. The fuel cell expects that the cost will improve continuously refined technology and large-scale

In the next phase, pending from the Swedish Energy Volvo Cars and Powercell produce two test cars on the current Volvo C30 DRIVe Testing of the cars will in 2012.

We have just taken the steps and it is naturally too early to about market introduction of cars with Range The industrial decision will after we have learned about fuel cells and the they offer, says Jacoby.
