CaetanoBus will deliver its first hydrogen-powered bus H2.City Gold to the operator Guaguas Municipales in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. The contracts have been awarded in partnership with Spanish Group Domingo Alonso, which handles sales and aftersales of Caetano hydrogen buses in the Canary Islands. The vehicles will be delivered in 2023.
The 12m Caetano H2.City Gold was originally launched in 2020 and there are now more than 80 units in operation in various European cities. The vehicle is the result of a partnership between Toyota and Caetano with the former providing the fuel cell technology.
The Toyota fuel cell has a nominal power of 60kW, and the vehicle has an LTO battery with a capacity of 44kWh, and a powertrain with a peak power of 180kW.
The buses were specified in accordance with the requirements of both customers and designed to operate in the Canary Islands. These will be the first hydrogen buses in Gran Canaria.
