BMW is presenting international media representatives with the first vehicles in a pilot fleet that will go into service this year.

After four years of development work, the BMW iX5 Hydrogen vehicle and development project is entering its critical next phase.

The fleet of less than 100 vehicles will then be employed internationally for demonstration and trial purposes for various target groups.

This active driving experience will therefore be the first chance for people not involved in the development process to gain a direct impression of what the BMW iX5 Hydrogen has to offer.

“Hydrogen is a versatile energy source that has a key role to play in the energy transition process and therefore in climate protection.

After all, it is one of the most efficient ways of storing and transporting renewable energies”, said Oliver Zipse, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG. “We should use this potential to also accelerate the transformation of the mobility sector. Hydrogen is the missing piece in the jigsaw when it comes to emission-free mobility. One technology on its own will not be enough to enable climate-neutral mobility worldwide.”

The BMW iX5 Hydrogen

The BMW iX5 Hydrogen was first unveiled as a concept at the IAA Show in 2019. Initial prototypes were then made available at the IAA Mobility 2021 for visitors to experience in action as shuttle vehicles.

Its hydrogen fuel cell system is further proof of BMW’s leading development expertise in the field of electric drive technologies. BMW is systematically pushing forward with development of hydrogen fuel cell technology as an additional option for locally emission-free individual mobility in the future.
