The services of car-sharing allow you to enjoy a car only when needed, and not pay his child support constantly

This summer we will launch a car sharing service that only use cars, hydrogen fuel cell, something that no one else has tested it. BeeZero, which is the name of the service, you will have half a hundred of Hyundai ix35 FCEV, fuel cell, hydrogen.

Now circulating in Europe 250 units in 13 countries. According to Hyundai, the ix35 (Tucson in other markets) are more numerous than all the other cars to be hydrogen together, at least on our continent. This half a hundred is a significant percentage of the number of cars total.

BeeZero is the first result of the division Linde Hydrogen Concepts, linked to the Group Linde. Is a business group dedicated to the production of industrial gases, and which separated for the first time the hydrogen of the water in 1906, 110 years ago. Linde to supply the hydrogen for the cars of the fleet.

BeeZero will be the most affordable way of using a hydrogen car in Germany, and serve to travel

Linde has seen a business opportunity in two growing trends: the use of car sharing and mobility without emissions. Let us remember that the cars of hydrogen fuel cells only produce a residue: water vapor.

The cars the fleet of BeeZero are used when you need to, as the service Car2Go in Madrid. The difference on other services is in the type of vehicle. The Hyundai ix35 FCEV can lead people uncontaminated, as an electric, but with less concerns about autonomy.

Can do 600 km without refuelling

unlike services such as Car2Go, these cars are suitable to use for short and medium distance, including any getaway, but without having to pay the numerous costs of a car in the property. Of time, BeeZero has not published rates, or pay-per-use or monthly fee.

The Hyundai ix35 is not the same as the new Tucson, is the model of the previous generation and is manufactured in South Korea

The experiment begins Munich (Germany) and adjacent areas: Schwabing, Haidhausen, Au and Glockenbachviertel. Users will have to make reservations through Website or a mobile application. It would be enough to approach the car, it would open remotely, and already you could use. there is No pick up keys at any site, or fill out paperwork.

According to the Group Linde, the hydrogen for these cars comes from industrial processes that do not generate waste or pollution. Therefore, we would speak in the beginning of zero actual emissions (excluding the transport or distribution, of course).

¿What wins Linde? Gives output to a product that sells, and gets an extra performance. What is the gain of Hyundai? in Addition to “placing” 50 cars that will hardly ever end up in the hands of individuals, can obtain valuable information about the usage patterns of the users and help shape the network of hydrogen supply.

The Hyundai ix35 FCEV costs in Germany 65.450 euros, or monthly payments of 599 euros. The Toyota Mirai costs there 78.540 euro

One of the obvious advantages of these cars is that, when the urban centres, the germans begin to close to cal and singing to the cars that pollute more, the ix35 hydrogen will be able to travel without any problem. In other words, used the stickers blue, that differentiate the cars cleaner on the market.

To be used for a public fleet, if you have the rotation enough to be in motion much of the time, benefit for both the cars. Of time the cars of hydrogen are very expensive to buy and operate, because it is a technology that is very new. It is the future, but in a first phase, it passes as with the electrical in your time.

BeeZero comes from Bee (“bee” in English) and Zero (for zero emissions). Within the system users are classified as the hives, hence the simile with the bees. The application Spanish BeBee has a similar performance, although it is to make professional contacts, not to car-share.
