Microcab enters new development phase

June 25, 2010 § Leave a comment

Coventry-based Microcab is working on its next-generation fuel cell hybrid demo vehicles, and is sourcing 10 3K fuel cells from Denmark’s Serenergy. These fuel cells operate at a higher temperature than most others in the market so far, and are said to operate over a wider range of ambient temperatures and to use less hydrogen.

Microcab is to supply eight cars to Coventry University for a trial, supported by the Technology Strategy Board and the Advantage West Midlands agency.  The company plans to manufacture a series of city vehicles, including a passenger car, a pick-up, a taxi and a van (pictured) and has already carried out trials in partnership with Birmingham University.
