Right now the world is starting to move towards electric mobility that some companies have started working on vehicles running on hydrogen fuel cells. One of these is California-based Biliti Electric, which has claimed to have built the world’s first hydrogen fuel cell (HFC) electric three-wheeler. The company has named it FastMile. The company claims that the refueling time of the Fastmile electric three-wheeler is less than 3 minutes and can give a range of up to 130 miles (approximately 210 km) in full tank.
TOI’s accordingThe Billi Electric FastMile electric vehicle offers 20 degrees of gradability and has a payload capacity of 1500 lbs (680 kg). The company says that the Fastmile three-wheeler has been tested for over 6,000 miles (9,656 km) in rough conditions.
Introducing the hydrogen-fuelled electric three-wheeler, the report states, “This is a major step forward in shaping the future of hydrogen energy and fuel cells for the global market,” said Rahul Gayan, CEO, Biliti Electric. Thankfully, BEVs are not the only solution for decarbonizing transportation. We are transforming the application and commercialization of HFCs by bringing technology along with compact and affordable vehicles.”
Talking about the difference between BEV and HCV, BEVs have a large battery to store electricity, whereas FCEVs generate their own electricity with a hydrogen fuel cell.
The report suggests that Viability’s SmartSwappTM technology can replace a vehicle’s battery in less than a minute. Recently, Luxembourg-based GEM Global Yield LLC has offered to provide $400 million to Biliti in the form of a share subscription facility. promised was. In addition, recently the company also announced its plans to set up the world’s largest electric three-wheeler manufacturing facility in India. Announcement Had it.
