There are two viable ways to supply an electric motor with electric energy: One can use a battery as a storage device, or one can utilize a fuel cell as an energy converter. In the near future, fuel cells are likely to remain the exception in passenger cars. In this domain the battery can make the most of its advantages. Things look different with commercial vehicles, though: As a sufficiently large truck battery would be uneconomically expensive and heavy – plus requiring long charging times – the fuel cell does indeed offer potential for transport logistics. Many products and systems for battery electric vehicles and fuel cell cars – in particular the electric drive – are very similar so that they can easily support both technologies. As an example, an electric axle drive can be used in a fuel cell car in just the same way. Other components from the Vitesco Technologies portfolio include, e.g., sensors, actuators, water pumps, electronics (such as control units) and thermal management solutions. Without entering into the development and manufacturing of energy storage or conversion (i.e., battery or fuel cell), Vitesco Technologies will therefore primarily support the fuel cell development in the truck application area at first.
