BMW Group has started the production of its BMW iX5 Hydrogen model in the pilot plant in Munich. It is the first SAV (Sports Activity Vehicle) powered by hydrogen fuel cell technology. It has already completed testing during development phase and will now be used as a technology demonstrator for local carbon free mobility in selected regions from spring 2023.
Fuel cells do not require any critical raw materials such as cobalt, lithium or nickel. Around 900 people work in the BMW Group’s pilot plant at its Research and Innovation Centre in Munich. The BMW Group Plant Spartanburg USA supplies the base vehicles for the hydrogen model. They are fitted with a new floor assembly, making it possible to accomodate two hydrogen tanks in the center tunnel and under the rear seat unit.
The model specific 12V and 400V electrical systems, high performance battery, electric motor and fuel cell are integrated during the assembly stage. The electric motor is positioned in the rear axle area along with the high performance battery and the fuel cell systems are located under the bonnet.
Hydrogen fuel cell technology has the benefit of a locally emission free drive system with long distance capabilities and short refuelling times.
