The first commercially available electrically assisted bike with a fuel cell (FC-Pedelec).The fuel cell and hydrogen storage integrated inside Alpha2.0 delivers an unrivalled range of 100km on a single charge.
Whereas battery-powered Pedelecs are adversely affected by low temperatures, Alpha2.0 provides constant range and performances in every weather conditions. Equiped with a best-in-class H2 gauge, it accurately indicates the remaining energy to the user..
Compared to conventional electric bikes, αlpha is refilled with hydrogen in only 2 minutes using the filling station, while standard e-bikes take more 3 to 4 hours to be fully charged.
The αlpha has a Brose 36V electric motor rated to 250W, which is fed by a “bridging” lithium-ion battery pack with 150 Wh of capacity, which in turn is charged by the onboard 150 W PEM fuel cell.
The fuel cell runs off of a 2-liter compressed hydrogen gas cylinder, which can be refilled in about 2 minutes at a filling station.
