Top 5 hydrogen two-wheeler manufacturers in China

Hydrogen two-wheelers, as a major representative of fuel cell end-use applications, are different from hydrogen fuel cell vehicles in the broader sense in three ways:

  1. Power mode, the existing hydrogen fuel cell vehicles essentially belong to the programmable hydrogen energy vehicles, and two-wheeled vehicles generally choose air-cooled electric reactor/liquid-cooled electric reactor as the main power source;
  2. Hydrogen storage mode, hydrogen two-wheeled vehicles are mostly stored in solid hydrogen storage bottles, and can choose to replace the hydrogen bottle replacement mode for replenishment.
  3. Business model, hydrogen two-wheeled vehicles, long range, fast replenishment, low comprehensive energy costs and other advantages are very suitable for sharing motorcycles and takeaway car market demand, and the market space in these two areas is still increasing year by year, and can provide further development opportunities for the emerging hydrogen two-wheeled vehicles.

Against this background, recent hydrogen two-wheeler good news has been rumored frequently, and there is a trend of growth.

One of the top 5 hydrogen two-wheeler manufacturers in China HITS is a technology leader in the field of small-sized hydrogen fuel cells, and is actively promoting the application of small-sized hydrogen fuel cells in the fields of two-wheelers, drones and mobile power. HITS Tian Binglun technical team is the original inventor of small air-cooled hydrogen fuel cells in China.

On August 8th, Tailg and HITS jointly released an air-cooled hydrogen sharing two-wheeler. The vehicle is designed and manufactured by one of the top 10 electric motorcycle manufacturers in China, Tailg Group’s entire vehicle, and is a high-quality, long-range shared hydrogen two-wheeler with excellent performance.


HITS provides a new generation of air-cooled hydrogen fuel cell system, the air-cooled fuel cell system inherits the nearly 20 years of research and development accumulation of HITS Tian Benglun’s technical team, and continues to innovate and iterate, the weight of the 350W hydrogen fuel cell is only 500 grams, the efficiency of power generation is as high as 55%, the utilization rate of hydrogen is 97%, and the whole system reduces the weight of ternary lithium battery by 60%.

The hydrogen sharing two-wheeler is safe and reliable, with three major advantages: first, long range, with a range of more than 130 kilometers; second, low-temperature resistance, which can work efficiently at more than minus 10 degrees Celsius; and third, low attenuation, with the normal service life increased by one times compared with that of lithium-ion.

On August 10, HITS and Miaozo reached a deep cooperation, committed to creating a new model of green shared mobility, strong alliance, in-depth cooperation, will soon land in Puyang, Zhengzhou, Zaozhuang and other cities, to promote the scale of shared hydrogen two-wheeled vehicle application.
