On October 26, United Fuel Cell System R&D (Beijing) Co., Ltd. (FCRD) and Toyota Sinohytec Fuel Cell Co., Ltd. (FCTS), which are both funded by Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota), announced to begin sales of TL Power 100, the first fuel cell system developed and produced for commercial vehicles in China.
Founded in August 2020, FCRD was jointly established by Beijing SinoHytec Co., Ltd. (SinoHytec), Toyota, China FAW Corporation Limited, Dongfeng Motor Corporation, Guangzhou Automobile Group Co., Ltd., and Beijing Automotive Group Co., Ltd. Since its inception, FCRD has been developing the fuel cell system which is more fit for local commercial vehicles in China.
Since FCTS was established by SinoHytec and Toyota as a joint venture in June 2021, with the goal of establishing a lean production system based on Toyota's production method within the year, it has been rapidly promoting the establishment of a local mass production system in China.
Developed based on Toyota's second-generation MIRAI fuel cell system, TL Power 100 adopts some China-made parts to match the operating environment of commercial vehicles in China, which has also improved the power and durability of the system. The localized development in China has accomplished a high power density of 711W/kg, 4.9kW/L (rated power of 101kW) and a durability of 30,000 hours.
In the future, FCRD and FCTS will continue to rapidly introduce systems with more diversified power, higher reliability and longer service cycle to the market in accordance with the various needs of light, medium and heavy commercial vehicles in China.
