The power of rightsizing - hybridization of battery and fuel cell
The heavy-duty market is a challenging one to electrify. With purely battery powered systems it is simply impossible to meet range and load requirements of deep--sea shipping or long-distance truck routes. Therefore, the hybridization approach of a battery combined with a fuel cell is a powerful leverage to even outfit the toughest applications with environmentally friendly powertrains. Freudenberg fully committed to make future mobility a green one and develops hybrid systems for these special purposes.
