Tata Motors in collaboration with the ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization) have developed the country’s first Hydrogen Fuel Cell Bus.

The bus was demonstrated at the Liquid Propulsions Systems Center in an ISRO facility located in Mahendragiri, Tamil Nadu last Sunday.

The CNG-based vehicle features Hydrogen stored in high-pressure bottles on the top of the bus.

We don’t have an exact idea of the specifications as the company has not made an announcement on that yet.

But it is believed that ISRO’s expertise in cryogenics and liquid hydrogen handling have helped in this project.

Gnana Gandhi, honorary Adviser of ISRO, who led the technical team for the project said: “This is a leap for automobile industry for future transportation. In this vehicle there will be zero pollution since the product of cold combustion is water."

This bus is a result of team work of Tata Motors and ISRO specialists with contributions from DSIR (Department of Scientific and Industrial Research) and PESO (Petroleum and Explosive Safety Organisation).

In July the Government of India was had announced trial runs of hybrid vehicles for public transportation. It seems like the Tata-ISRO hybrid bus would is a good starting point for that.
