M&M shows hydrogen 3-wheeler

The world’s first hydrogen-powered three-wheeler, ‘HyAlfa’, was showcased on Monday.

Part of development project dubbed ‘DelHy 3w’, a fleet of 15 HyAlfa three-wheelers will run on an experimental basis at Pragati Maidan, where a hydrogen refuelling station has also been set up.

HyAlfa has been developed under a joint project by the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) International Centre for Hydrogen Energy Technologies (ICHET), Mahindra & Mahindra and IIT-Delhi, with support from the Ministry of New & Renewable Energy.

M&M President Automotive Pawan Goenka said “when mass produced it will cost Rs 20,000 to Rs 25,000 more than a CNG three-wheeler.” Project coordinator IIT-Delhi Professor L M Das said HyAlfa marks a journey of 20 years from “laboratory to land”.
