Edison Motors, Plug Power Agree to Co-Develop Hydrogen-Powered Electric Bus

Korean electric vehicle maker Edison Motors Co. has agreed to partner with hydrogen fuel cell provider Plug Power Inc. to develop and bring to market a hydrogen fuel cell-powered electric city bus.

The companies will develop electric city bus prototypes that will be equipped with Plug Power's fuel cell system. Plug's 125kW ProGen fuel cell engine will provide the power for the electric bus platform.

"We believe that our combined technology and know-how in electric buses will position us to sell fuel cell-powered electric buses not only in Korea but also in other overseas markets," said Edison Motors Chairman Young-kwon Kang in prepared remarks.

Edison and Plug expect the prototype to be completed around the second half of next year, and they plan to be ready to launch the platform to the mass market by the first half of 2023.
