China’s X-Idea Industry Design Group has unveiled a fuel cell two-wheeled concept motorcycle called Xcell.
The hydrogen fuel cell powered motorcycle is expected to be developed over the next ten years. The bike has a user-defined riding posture that can meet various needs in different situations by changing the riding triangle (seat, bar, footpeg). It has the flexibility to adjust the three points of handlebars, pedals, and cushions.
The two-wheeler also has an intelligent, active safety system, which provides riders with timely obstacle feedback based on road conditions regardless of the objects and predicts blind corners. The Xcell hydrogen-powered fuel cell is fitted with four hydrogen storage tanks in the front for powering the engine.
In a separate development, H2X Global today (27th October) announced to build hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles in Gippsland, Victoria, Australia, with the cooperation with the Gippsland Circular Economy Precinct (GCEP). Under the agreement, H2X aims to produce hydrogen fuel cells, electrolysers, hydrogen fuel cell-powered vehicles and other hydrogen-powered products in Gippsland. GCEP is a consortium of Gippsland-based businesses whose objective is to move away from the local economy from coal power generation to renewables.
Brendan Norman, H2X CEO, said, “This is a great opportunity for Gippsland to engage with hydrogen technology and provide new enterprises, new jobs and training in support.”
