Indian automaker Tata Motors has announced two advanced R&D (research and development) facilities in India to develop hydrogen propulsion technologies, the company said in a statement on Monday.
Thus, one of the facilities will be used to test engines to develop a hydrogen combustion system, while the other will be used for the infrastructure needed to store and distribute hydrogen for fuel cell vehicles or H2ICE engines.
The company assures that these new facilities are “another step forward” towards their CO2 neutrality, where they will exploit the potential of hydrogen as a source of clean energy.
Tata Motor CEO Girish Wagh has highlighted that hydrogen is the “fuel of the future”, especially for commercial vehicles. “With the opening of these R&D facilities, we are entering a new era of technological innovations and advances in green mobility,” he assured.
