Our fuel cell ‘engine’ for passenger cars and light commercial vehicles


IE-DRIVE™ 100 is designed to meet the performance and space constraints of passenger and light commercial vehicles (LCV), providing peak power up to 110kW in a compact, engine shaped format.

The hydrogen fuel cell module and surrounding system has been designed specifically for integration into automotive applications including cars or LCVs, replacing an existing fossil fuel engine with a zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell. The modular design enables the integration of this to be as straightforward as possible, whilst meeting the challenge of packaging into an existing vehicle.

IE-DRIVE 100 is currently being developed by Intelligent Energy, with units available for test and development in 2023. Please contact us if you have a programme and would like to find out more about our product.
