Tens of thousands of kilometers of on-road EV success – in subcompact cars to 4.8 ton delivery vans – have demonstrated that Electric Fuel’s revolutionary zinc-air fuel cell, which uses commercially-available, low cost zinc, is a robust solution for zero-emission transportation.

In the USA:

  • Successful demonstration of full-size, all-electric, zero-emission passenger bus
    • Specific energy of 200 Wh/kg
    • Eight-hour continuous service
    • Record-breaking range under fully-loaded city driving conditions
    • Rapid anode exchange; freedom from “plug-in-and-wait” recharge
    • Operating costs comparable to standard diesel buses

In Germany:

  • Electric Fuel’s zinc-air batteries served as primary energy source for hybrid cargo vans driving more that 60,000 km in all weather field testing for the German Postal Authority
  • Vehicles serviced at the Electric Fuel regeneration plant in Bremen

In Italy:

  • Electric Fuel EV technology installed in subcompact cars and large vans
  • Establishment of EF anode regeneration plant

In the Netherlands:

  • Passenger van equipped with EF zinc-air batteries demonstrated

In Scandinavia

  • License agreement to establish and operate Electric Fuel infrastructure signed for Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Petersburg, Russia
