California to gain five more hydrogen fuel cell buses

October 4, 2021

California is growing its hydrogen mobility solutions with New Flyer of America set to provide five new Xcelsior CHARGE hydrogen powered buses.

The 40-foot fuel cell buses will help decarbonise the public transportation sector of California by providing a solution that produces no emissions.

The Xcelsior CHARGE H2™ bus is a battery electric vehicle which uses compressed hydrogen as an energy source, along with Ballard Power Systems fuel cell technology.

The buses will be delivered to the California Department of General Services as the agency aims to deliver on its zero-emission bus rollout plan with hopes to have a 100% zero-emission fleet by 2040.
