Weichai Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles to Undergo Extreme Cold Road Test
The test will be conducted in Yakeshi, Hulunbuir, Inner Mongolia. The average temperature in Hulunbuir is as low as minus 40 ℃ in winter. In order to obtain the best test result to verify the low temperature starting capabilities of Weichai hydrogen fuel cells, engineers leave for the test site every day in the early morning.
The tests to be carried out will include low temperature cold start test, vehicle driving test in low-temperature areas, passing topography capacity on a snow covered road as well as reliability proof test.
In January, 2021, Weichai had carried out cold tests for heavy-duty trucks, light duty trucks, buses and fuel cell commercial vehicles for the first time in the industry. In 2020, Weichai Power has achieved great progress in the layouts of hydrogen and fuel cell vehicles: Weichai built a fuel cell engine and stack production line with a capacity of 20,000 sets, launched 220 hydrogen and fuel cell buses in Weifang, Jinan and Liaocheng city, launched 10 hydrogen and fuel cell buses routes, covering a cumulative operating mileage of more than 2 million km.
In the future, Weichai will strengthen its efforts to promote the R&D of key components of fuel cells, play a leading role in the industry chain to boost the commercialization of fuel cell vehicles.
