Suzuki Burgman Fuel Cell Scooter Gets Official

Suzuki sells motorcycles all around the world and for many people the motorcycle and ATV line is what the company is most known for. Suzuki also has a line of cars that are sold in the US and in other countries as well. The company has announced that a new scooter has been given the Whole Vehicle Type Approval and it is the first time that any vehicle powered by a fuel cell has been granted the certification. The certification means that the fuel cell scooter can be used on public streets. Without out each version having to be tested.

The entire fuel cell scooter line is now able to be used on public streets and has been designated as safe. The certification brings the fuel cell scooters closer to hitting the commercial market. Many people are riding around my town on scooters today to save on fuel costs. A fuel cell version will have even less cost for the rider and produces no pollutants as the hydrogen in the fuel cell is burned. The hydrogen fuel cell scooter debuted at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2009.

Suzuki Motor Corporation is pleased to announce that the Suzuki Burgman Fuel Cell Scooter has become the world’s first fuel cell vehicle to earn Whole Vehicle Type Approval in the European Union,” explained Mr. O. Suzuki, Chairman and CEO, Suzuki Motor Corporation. “Our aim is to make eco-friendly fuel cell scooters increasingly common in Europe, in line with the establishment of hydrogen filling stations and other necessary infrastructure.”

Suzuki says that the Burgman Fuel Cell Scooter will undergo further testing on public roads in the East Midlands and London over in England. Suzuki isn't clear on how or where riders will be getting the hydrogen for the fuel cells. The company is also not offering details at this time on how far the scooter is able to drive on a full tank of fuel.

“We’re immensely proud that our five year partnership with Suzuki Motor Corporation has led to the Suzuki Burgman Fuel Cell Scooter becoming the world’s first hydrogen fuel cell vehicle to achieve Whole Vehicle Type Approval. This is an important day in the history of fuel cell technology and a huge step towards cleaner, more efficient vehicles being part of the mainstream,” said Dr Henri Winand, CEO, Intelligent Energy.
