ALSTOM from Salzgitter has developed the world's first passenger train powered by a hydrogen fuel cell. Its top speed is 140 km/h, and it can cover a distance of 1,000 km. This emission-free train is low-noise and emits only water vapour and condensation.
With the introduction of this CO2 emission-free regional train, there is a real alternative to the diesel engine train. Since 2018, one train has been in passenger service between Stade and Cuxhaven, and regular service with 14 trains will begin in Lower Saxony in autumn 2021.
