The manufacturer’s new Hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle prototype will begin testing later this year. The new powertrain is part of the manufacturers plan to reach zero tailpipe emissions by 2036.
They said the new technology would be key to prepare for the “next generation” of vehicles on the roads.
He said: “We know hydrogen has a role to play in the future powertrain mix across the whole transport industry.
“Alongside battery electric vehicles, it offers another zero tailpipe emission solution for the specific capabilities and requirements of Jaguar Land Rover’s world-class line-up of vehicles.
“The work done alongside our partners in Project Zeus will help us on our journey to become a net-zero carbon business by 2039, as we prepare for the next generation of zero tailpipe emissions vehicles.”
But more needs to be done to boost the numbers of hydrogen models on the road with sales figured down at minimal rates.
According to Autocar, hydrogen sales are so low they account for less than 0.01 percent of the market share.
In 2019, just 68 FCEV’s were sold compared to thousands of traditional electric car models.
Former Top gear host James May recently attacked his Toyota Mirai hydrogen model, claiming the machine was too complicated to use.
