BMW details fuel cell plans
As part of an open-technology approach to future drive technologies, BMW announced plans some time ago for a small series of vehicles with fuel cells. Now the company provides further details.

BMW's fuel cell power train design: The fuel cell (left) sits on top of the front axle while the e-motor and the relatively small high-voltage battery ensure that the drive wheels are loaded.

The actual propulsion task is performed by BMW's fifth generation electric drive (Gen5) integrated into the vehicle. This drive is used for the first time in the BMW iX3, whose production recently started in China. The power buffer battery, which in this drive design sits above the electric motor, provides additional dynamics during acceleration. The total drive power is thus 275 kW.
