In January 2006, the first fuel cell stack developed by the partnership between PSA Peugeot Citroën and CEA has been unveiled. Due to its particularly high performances, 1,5 kW/l, 1 kW/kg, with high efficiency vehicle integration has been launched out into the FiSyPAC project. PSA group is committed to the long term, gradual integration of fuel cell technology into cars, by developing an innovative electric vehicle concept equipped with a range extender consisting of a hydrogenpowered fuel cell hybridized with a high battery capacity. CEA is involved in the development of innovative technical solutions for fuel cells, particularly PEMFC in terms of stack design and fuel cell systems optimization for reliability and durability improvements. The scope of the FiSyPAC project which joined eleven partner’s forces is to develop a reliable 20 kW fuel cell system, a Li-ion battery, and to test this hybridization on board a Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV). A description of the vehicle architecture and performances achieved during the project are described in this paper, from the stack and fuel cell system design to the vehicle performances.
