Astris Energi will be exhibiting a fuel cell vehicle with a carbon fibre hydrogen tank at the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) during the opening weekend festivities.

The display will be part of the Hydrogen Village pavilion that will showcase leading edge fuel cell and hydrogen related technologies. On display will be Astris’ Freedom Golf Car, the world’s first alkaline fuel cell powered golf car fuelled by hydrogen. It is currently powered by Astris’ 1.0 kW Power Generator, giving the vehicle a top cruising speed of 31 kph with better acceleration, hill climbing and extended range compared with a conventional battery-powered model. The car is fuelled by a 33-litre, refillable, carbon fibre hydrogen tank that can last up to 3 days under typical usage. The hydrogen tank can be re-filled within minutes.
