Just three months after taking delivery of our first ever hydrogen car, PUMA HQ in Herzogenaurach expanded its fleet of zero-emission vehicles by adding another five hydrogen fuel cell-powered Hyundai Nexo cars.
PUMA now has six hydrogen fuel cell-powered cars in its headquarter fleet, in addition to several battery-electric vehicles (such as Tesla Model 3 and Hyundai Kona). By the second quarter of next year, 6 vehicles with a diesel engine will be removed from the fleet.
Sebastian Friedrich, Head of Central Services at PUMA said, “These vehicles are a very attractive alternative to conventional cars with a combustion engine, because they can be used in the same way. The feedback we’ve had from users so far has been great.”
As part of PUMA’s sustainability strategy 10FOR25, we aim to reduce our CO2 emissions by 35 % until 2030. This means that we want to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by what scientists say is necessary to keep global warming well below 2 degrees Celsius. Switching our existing fleet of cars to more environmentally friendly alternatives is part of this strategy.
The new hydrogen fuel cell-powered cars have a range of more than 600 kilometers (370 miles) and can be refilled in just a few minutes. This makes them ideal for longer distance trips.
