Hydrogen buses: Safra and Symbio announce 1500 vehicles

Having already partnered up in designing France’s first hydrogen-powered bus, Safra, based in Albi, and Symbio (a subsidiary of Michelin and Faurecia) agreed terms to build 1500 buses to be fitted with an optimised hydrogen system and a range of services that suit how these vehicles will be used.

With the Businova—the first French hydrogen Safra-developed, Symbio-fitted bus—already on the streets of several cities such as Artois-Gohelle, Versailles and Le Mans, the two companies are today announcing 1500 more 12-metre buses available from December 2021. “Safra is currently the only French manufacturer making hydrogen buses”, says Vincent Lemaire, CEO of the Albi-based company.
