2019 for SAFRA Constructor, the pace of production has increased. This year, SAFRA has chosen to focus on its customer deliveries and to show only its energy pack, a true technical innovation of the Businova in which the hydrogen fuel cell is located. The opportunity to expose its unique propulsion system, and its exceptionally innovative architecture.
The hydrogen Businova, based on the original electrical architecture developed by SAFRA, integrates its engine and energy system into a separate chassis at the rear of the vehicle. Inside this «energy pack», is the hydrogen range extender, a 30 kW fuel cell supplied by Symbio/Michelin, which supplies a 132 kWh battery supplied by SAFRA. This battery pack is identical on the entire Businova electric range. Thanks to the 32 kg of hydrogen on the roof in specific tanks compressing the gas to 350 bar, the Businova hydrogen offers a minimum range of 350 km per recharge.
The innovative architecture of the Businova allowed the hydrogen version to be developed in a very short time, with an official approval of the vehicle granted in early October of this year.
