Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) is embarking on a serious hydrogen power research project with the aim of developing fuel cell-powered versions of its larger vehicles.
- Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe, making it an ideal fuel for a low-CO2 future
- Hydrogen fuel-cell EVs can be refuelled in minutes, akin to combustion-engined vehicles
- Said to offer longer range than traditional EVs while weighing far less, ideal for the Land Rover range
Should the research effort – knows as Project Zeus – prove successful, the hydrogen fuel cell technology would most likely be ready for production use around the time of the next generation Range Rover Evoque’s arrival midway through the decade and then be used for zero-emissions versions of larger models in the future.
