As it starts production of fuel cell systems developed in-house, BMW Group is taking the next step toward sustainable electromobility. The ground-breaking combination of fuel cell and high-performance battery in the vehicle offers an intriguing carbon-free alternative to electric drive forms already in place, in a system that is suitable for day-to-day use. In doing so the company is providing another sustainable, worthwhile drive option – meaning more emissions-free options in everyday mobility.

The advantages of this alternative technology are clear: “As a versatile energy source, hydrogen has a key role to play on the road to climate neutrality. And it will also gain substantially in importance as far as personal mobility is concerned. We think hydrogen-powered vehicles are ideally placed technologically to fit alongside battery-electric vehicles and complete the electric mobility picture,” says Oliver Zipse, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG. “By commencing small-scale production of fuel cells today, we are demonstrating the technical maturity of this type of drive system and underscoring its potential for the future.”
