In brief: Nissan has announced their first hydrogen fuel cell vehicle lease in North America, leasing the X-Trail FCV to Coca-Cola Bottling Co. in Sacramento, California.
Vehicle in the news
Make/Model: X-Trail FCV
Nissan North America has announced that they've leased an X-Trail Fuel Cell Vehicle (FCV) to the Sacramento, California Coca-Cola Bottling Company.
This is Nissan's first commercial lease in North America. Coca-Cola signed a one year lease agreement with a two year additional option.
The X-Trail FCV will be used by the cola company to make sales calls, appear at public events (promoting, of course, Coca-Cola ZERO), etc.
Sacramento-area X-Trail FCVs being tested as part of Nissan's overall fuel cell vehicle development have logged about 300,000 miles so far.
This version of the X-Trail has the well-tested 90kW compact fuel cell stack and performs about the same as its ICE counterpart (the X-Trail V6). It's capable of 96mph and a range of up to 300 miles.
And so ...
Nissan's next-generation fuel cells are being tested now and are 25% smaller and provide 1.4 times the power output (130kW). Things are heating up in the FCV arena!
