2021 Renault Master H2-Tech
Hyvia has only existed for six months, but plans to bring two Renault Masters with fuel cells onto the market as early as 2022. We are actually talking about three models, namely vans, minibuses and platforms. The important
prototype data are also a bit confusing.
In the video below, there is talk of 6 kg with a filling pressure of 700 bar. That would be between Toyota Mirai with 5.6 kg and Hyundai Nexo with 6.3 kg. However, both come from the car class and the Mirai is also very
Renault speaks of 4.5 kg for the minibus, this time with 350 instead of 700 bar. That should then bring a practical range of 300 km. Here, the hydrogen tanks are accommodated in the roof, while the platform variant has a
chassis that is raised by the tanks.
With this vehicle, as with the transporter, too, there is talk of only 3 kg supply of hydrogen, which should then have a range of 250 km. After all, the payload is said to be a ton. Strange that all Master H2-Tech have the same
battery as the Master E-Tech on board.
It is unclear whether this 33 kWh battery can be charged quickly. This would have to happen during the refueling stop, but it would make the stop very long. Such a large battery is apparently necessary because the fuel cell
only produces 30 kW.
Because you have to assume that the electric motor from the Master E-Tech is installed here and with 57 kW it has almost twice as much performance. In the end, the question remains whether the battery was added to the
You can't help but get the impression that the information is contradicting itself, perhaps also that the three variants of Hyvia were hastily cobbled together. Is behind it Nissan and the new alliance between the other
Japanese manufacturers to save the internal combustion engine?
