Munich. The BMW Group is evenly pushing
brazen with growth of hydrogen fuel dungeon record as an
additional choice for tolerable sold mobility. Two years after
phenomenon a BMW i Hydrogen NEXT judgment car, a association will
benefaction a BMW iX5 Hydrogen during a IAA Mobility 2021 in Munich.
Currently still in array development, a Sports Activity Vehicle
(SAV) with hydrogen fuel dungeon expostulate sight will be one of several
vehicles visitors can knowledge as they are driven along a Blue
Lane joining a categorical muster drift with other exhibition
venues in a city centre.
A tiny array of a BMW iX5 Hydrogen, grown on a basement of the
BMW X5, will be used for explanation and contrast functions from the
finish of subsequent year. Its hydrogen fuel dungeon component is serve explanation of
a BMW Group’s heading growth imagination in a margin of electric
expostulate technologies. “With a high-performance fuel dungeon and
optimised appetite battery, a BMW iX5 Hydrogen’s expostulate component is
singular in a world,” pronounced Juergen Guldner, conduct of BMW
Group Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technology and Vehicle Projects. “With this,
we are forging new paths for tolerable pushing pleasure.”
With a right conditions, hydrogen fuel dungeon record has the
intensity to turn a serve post in a BMW Group’s expostulate train
portfolio for internal CO2-free mobility. The BMW i brand, that is
wholly geared towards locally emission-free mobility, could in the
destiny also offer vehicles with hydrogen fuel dungeon expostulate trains, in
serve to battery-electric models such as a BMW i3, BMW iX3, BMW
iX and BMW i4. Provided a hydrogen is constructed regulating renewable
appetite and a required infrastructure is available, this technology
can component a BMW Group’s electrified expostulate sight portfolio –
and, in particular, accommodate a needs of business who do not have their
possess entrance to electric charging infrastructure, frequently expostulate long
distances or enterprise a high grade of flexibility.
Model-specific pattern elements 3D-printed for locally
emission-free Sports Activity Vehicle.
The BMW iX5
Hydrogen is a complicated oppulance Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) that
combines ground-breaking expostulate record with a powerful
proportions, preference and flexibility of a BMW X model.
Individual extraneous and interior pattern elements

The filigree inserts covering a cooling atmosphere openings during a front of
a BMW iX5 Hydrogen, as good as a back apron and a diffuser
element, also have their possess singular design. The elaborate grilles
covering a BMW kidney grille, a reduce and dual outdoor atmosphere inlets and
a physique elements for a reduce back finish trim all come from a BMW
Group’s Additive Manufacturing Campus, that uses 3D copy to
furnish antecedent and customary parts. Additive prolongation enables
quick and rarely stretchable prolongation of components – some of that have
geometric shapes that can't be realised with required prolongation methods.
Systematic sustainability: Aerodynamic wheels and tyres made
of healthy rubber.
The BMW iX5 Hydrogen’s aerodynamic wheels come with sustainably
constructed tyres done of healthy rubber and rayon. The tender materials for
this are extracted in correspondence with a standards of a independent
Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) organisation. The BMW Group is the
initial automotive manufacturer worldwide to use Pirelli tyres made
exclusively from approved healthy rubber and a wood-based material
rayon in a prolongation vehicles.
Hallmark BMW pushing dynamics, clever long-distance capabilities.
The BMW iX5 Hydrogen combines fuel dungeon record with a
fifth-generation BMW eDrive. The expostulate component uses hydrogen as fuel by
converting it into electricity in a fuel dungeon – delivering an
electrical outlay of adult to 125 kW/170 hp, with H2O effluvium as the
usually emission. This expostulate appetite also enables it to maintain
consistently high speeds over longer distances. The
electric engine was grown from a fifth-generation BMW eDrive
record also used in a BMW iX. In coasting overshoot and braking
phases, it serves as a generator, feeding appetite into a appetite battery.
The appetite stored in this appetite battery is also utilized for
quite sporty pushing manoeuvres – delivering a system
outlay of 275 kW/374 hp and guaranteeing a brand’s
signature pushing experience.
The hydrogen indispensable to supply a fuel dungeon is stored in dual 700-bar
tanks done of carbon-fibre reinforced cosmetic (CFRP), that together
reason roughly 6 kilograms of hydrogen. “Filling adult the
hydrogen tanks usually takes 3 to 4 minutes – so there
are no boundary on regulating a BMW iX5 Hydrogen for prolonged distances, with
only a few, brief stops in-between,” explains Guldner.
Hydrogen as partial of tellurian activities for CO2-free
According to a news by a International
Energy Agency (IEA), hydrogen offers considerable intensity as
a destiny appetite source in tie with tellurian energy
transition activities. Thanks to a storage and transport
capabilities, hydrogen can be used for a far-reaching accumulation of applications.
Most industrialised countries are therefore adopting hydrogen
strategies and subsidy them adult with roadmaps and petrify projects. In
a ride sector, hydrogen can turn a serve record option,
alongside battery-electric mobility, for moulding sustainable
sold mobility in a prolonged term. However, this will count on
rival prolongation of sufficient quantities of hydrogen from green
power, as good as enlargement of a analogous filling
infrastructure, that is already being intensively followed in many countries.
The BMW Group welcomes and supports activities to foster innovation
in Germany and Europe that will assistance build a hydrogen economy and
accelerate prolongation of immature hydrogen. These privately include
a large-scale hydrogen projects personal as Important Projects of
Common European Interest (IPCEI). The projects that contain this
European Union initiative, upheld in Germany by a Federal
Ministry of Economic Affairs and a Federal Ministry of Transport,
camber a whole value sequence – from hydrogen prolongation to ride to
applications in industry.
