Fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) are another type of zero-emission vehicle producing no CO2 or other harmful emissions. Powered by electricity generated from hydrogen and oxygen, FCEVs emit only water during driving. Nissan believes that in building a sustainable mobility society, both FCEVs and EVs are important from an energy diversity perspective. Nissan’s FCEVs make use of proprietary fuel-cell technology, high-power electric systems and control systems refined in EV development, as well as high-pressure gas storage technologies from compressed natural gas vehicles (CNGVs).

To advance FCEV research and development and make possible their wider adoption, in 2013, Daimler AG, Ford Motor Company and Nissan, under the Alliance with Renault, signed a unique three-way agreement for the joint development of a common fuel cell system. In July 2015 Toyota Motor Corporation, Honda Motor Co., Ltd. and Nissan announced a new joint support project for the development of hydrogen station infrastructure in Japan. In addition to partially covering the operating costs of hydrogen stations, the three automakers have also agreed to help infrastructure companies deliver the best possible customer service and create a convenient, hassle-free refueling network for owners of FCEVs.
