By Bradley Osborne - 7th March 2022

Spain – R&D design company QEV Technologies SL1 (“QEV Tech”) of Barcelona is collaborating with coachbuilder Nogebus of Girona, Spain on the development of a prototype fuel-cell electric intercity bus, which is expected to be ready for on-road trials sometime this year. 

The two companies are working together on a bus which will be powered by hydrogen fuel cells, providing a range of up to 350km. The bodywork will be based on that of the ‘Touring 330’ 12.2-metre coach built by Nogebus. Seating capacity will be 49 with room for 12 standing passengers and 1 passenger with reduced mobility. The vehicle will be manufactured at QEV Tech’s facility, before being fitted with a body at Nogebus’ plant.
