Mahle has been awarded funding from the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology as part of a New Vehicle and System Technologies programme which also includes “six well-known companies in the automotive supplier and logistics industries as well as three renowned research institutes and universities”, according to the supplier.

The three-year project began on 1 July and aims to convert Ford light commercial vehicles with conventional internal combustion engines to hydrogen operation.

“We consider hydrogen to be an important building block for sustainable road transport. Our participation in this future-oriented project is another aspect of the technological transformation of our company,” said Mahle chairman and CFO Michael Frick.

The participants will build a demonstration vehicle for the first time with Mahle developing and producing the prototype engine and valve train components for the hydrogen-powered engine with direct injection.
