In a joint action, various French stakeholders intend to launch a load tricycle with pedal support in the form of a fuel cell drive on the market in 2020. The bicycle manufacturer Cycleurope has teamed up with Bianchi and STOR-H Technologies for development.
The result is the “Sneaker”, which can be used for professional applications (material transport, deliveries; up to 25 kg), but also for shopping by private users.
It has a 250 W drive, which is supplied with energy from two hydrogen cartridges. The H2 containers, which can be replaced within seconds, come from Aaqius (see interview H2-international issue July 2018) and enable an electric range of 100 km and a maximum speed of 25 km/h. The new concept was presented at the end of October 2019 in Geneva. Aaqius President Stéphane Aver stated that this was a further step towards “truly sustainable mobility that is affordable for everyone”.
