– The distribution network of the minibus is taking shape with partners such as PVI (France), MELLOR (Sweden, Norway and Finland), TRIBUS (Germany, Netherlands, Denmark, Belgium and Luxembourg) and QIBUS (Italy).
– The first pilot customers: RATP Dev, a major player in passenger transport in Europe, B.E. GREEN, a pioneer in zero-emission bus rental in France, MILLA, a pioneer in autonomous buses in France, and STROOMLIJN, a public transport specialist in Netherlands.

Renault Master Chassis Cab H2-TECH prototype is also on site. This version allows great possibilities of tailor-made conversions: projects are progressing, in particular for refrigerated, tipper, bucket or large volume versions

Last but not least, a strategic asset of our ecosystem: after-sales is being set up with the training of pilot dealers in Europe.

And more to come in our HYVIA plant in Flins, near Paris:
– the ramp-up of the fuel cell assembly and testing line,
– the on-going H2 station assembly and testing line,
– and a first 1 MW electrolyzer.
