Located in Paris, Symbio is looking for ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve air quality and develop renewable energy. Thus, since 2010, Symbio has been developing and marketing fuel cells. Indeed, in March 2013 an agreement between Symbio and Renaud was signed, generating the production of several models equipped with this technology, including the Kangoo ZE H2 in 2014. Since then, Symbio has signed new agreements and become a joint venture with Michelin and Faurecia. Today, these hydrogen fuel cells guarantee battery-powered electric vehicles a doubled range and a recharging time of just a few minutes. More than 200 vehicles are already equipped with these batteries and have covered more than 3 million kilometers. These batteries can generate between 5 and 300kW and can thus be adapted to all types of vehicles, from small light city cars, to large handling or mining vehicles, as well as trains and boats.
Symbio meets the expectations and concerns of fleet managers, as it is possible to equip vehicles with zero-emission batteries without defining a new operating scheme. It also meets the needs of manufacturers by offering a wide range of battery versions, available for all types of vehicles.
Symbio aspires to become the world leader in hydrogen-powered mobility for all vehicles equipped with this system. It is therefore committed to mastering the cost curve and implementing automotive production standards by 2023 and to producing 200,000 StackPacks per year by 2030. Currently, three StackPacks are on display: H2Motiv, a complete range of StackPacks (Automotive), StackPack S, designed for light vehicles and city buses, and StackPack M, which is aimed more at 44-ton trucks and SUVs. The latter will be available from 2023.
