Intelligent Energy, Suzuki to exhibit Suzuki Burgman fuel cell scooter at Tokyo Motor Show

UK-based PEM fuel cell developer Intelligent Energy and its partner Suzuki Motor Corporation are unveiling their latest joint development in clean fuel transport systems at the 41st Tokyo Motor Show – the Suzuki Burgman Fuel Cell Scooter.

Two years ago Intelligent Energy and Suzuki stunned the motorcycle world with the Crosscage fuel cell motorbike; now they have applied the advanced Intelligent Energy fuel cell technology to a more accessible form of two-wheeled transportation. The city-friendly Suzuki Burgman Fuel Cell Scooter is a demonstration of the potential for zero-emissions motorcycles to significantly reduce emissions around the world.

The Suzuki scooter is fitted with a hydrogen fuel tank which delivers quick refuelling and good riding range, and has a robust frame for increased safety. The Suzuki scooter uses the latest version of the Intelligent Energy proprietary PEM fuel cell engine, which is light, compact, and well suited to mass production.

‘The zero-emissions Burgman scooter is the latest product of the successful commercial relationship between Suzuki and Intelligent Energy’, comments Dr Henri Winand at Intelligent Energy.

‘Of course, these clean fuel cell engine powered motorcycles are not simply for motor shows, and can be widely available to everyone in the near future,’ continues the Intelligent Energy CEO. ‘As part of this process, Intelligent Energy and Suzuki will continue to work on clean fuel cell powered motorcycles, and plan to hold demonstrations of the fuel cell scooter in the near future.’
