First fuel cell electric vehicles ever – to join the Giro d’Italia bicycle race
04-05-2012
With water as only exhaust two cell electric vehicles from Hyundai will join the zero emission biking in the Giro d’Italia race when it takes off in Den-mark this Saturday. The world’s toughest bicycle race fits perfectly with the fuel cell vehicles, as they are capable of driving more than 500 kilometer on one refueling of hydrogen. Compared to the bikers, the fuel cell vehicles only require 3 minutes of refueling before ready for the next stage. Where headwind is a challenge in the race, this only provides more energy for the hydrogen production that naturally is based on pure wind power.

If people all across the world rode a bike like the racers in Giro d’Italia, we would have no pollution in cities or dependency on sacred fossil fuels. This is exactly the purpose of hydrogen powered fuel cell electric vehicles. Electricity from wind is used to split water into hydrogen fuel. You gain 500 km on a 3 minutes refueling of hydrogen at a conventional refueling station and your ride is completely zero emission with water as the only exhaust. For that to happen, you don’t have to train for becoming a professional bicycle racer in the Giro d’Italia or alike.

Two fuel cell electric vehicles from Hyundai will join the pre-caravan of the Giro d’Italia, showcasing zero emission transportation for ordinary people. Hydrogen will be provided by the local company H2 Logic A/S that is a world leader in providing fast fueling of sustainable hydrogen.

Despite the innovative nature, the fuel cell vehicles will ironically feature a dinosaur alike exterior design, showcasing the coming event “Walking with Dinosaurs” (11.-14th Oct.) at Denmark’s National Arena Jyske Bank BOXEN in Herning – www.mch.dk

However the branding serves a noble purpose of supporting the global campaign to fight malaria in Africa named “Nothing But nets”, handled by the local business network JCI. The campaigning is part of the United Nations (UN) Millennium Development Goals on fighting global challenges such as poverty, starvation, illness, and environment in developing countries.

The fuel cell vehicles will participate during the Giro d’Italia team presentation on Friday in Herning and during the campaign caravan drive on Saturday, Sunday and Monday in advance of the bicycle stages in Herning and Horsens, Denmark. Test drive and experience of the ve-hicles may be booked in advance or after the race by Press and VIP’s.
