Propulsion Hydrogen Fuel Cell

The New Flyer Industries XHE60 is a hydrogen fuel cell, low floor articulated transit bus from the Xcelsior line. The bus was developed with a grant from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) administered by CALSTART and is part of the National Fuel Cell Bus Program. The XHE60 made its debut on April 22, 2016. AC Transit will be the first to operate the bus.

The rear axle of the XHE60 is driven by a Siemens electric motor and the middle axle is driven by hub motors with electricity generated from Ballard's seventh generation FCveloCity hydrogen fuel cell. Batteries capture the braking energy and providing further power for the bus's acceleration. Because the hydrogen tanks take up some of the space on the roof, some of the batteries are located inside the bus around the joint.

The first commercial order for the XHE60 was placed by the Champaign Urbana Mass Transit District in September of 2017, for two buses to be delivered in 2019.
