From 4th through the 8th of December 2014 with a 7,5 t commercial vehicle with hybrid fuel cell / battery-electric system made by Proton Motor, the distance Munich-Berlin was covered for the first time in history completely silent and emission-free.
The cold season as well as the availability of energy- and hydrogen-refuelling stations en route are challenging.
The HyRange® Fuel Cell-System managed even critical route sections.
The record trip came to an end at CTI-Symposium in Berlin where the fuel cell system was presented to international public. Then vehicle and system had to meet additional challenges on the ADAC-test track in Linthe.
