World’s first hydrogen train launched in Germany


Germany has rolled out the world’s first hydrogen powered train, the Corodia iLint, built by French sustainable mobility company Alstom. Two bright blue Coradia iLint trains began running a 100-kilometre (62-mile) route between the towns and cities of Cuxhaven, Bremerhaven, Bremervoerde and Buxtehude in northern Germany.

“The world’s first hydrogen train is entering into commercial service and is ready for serial production,” Alstom CEO Henri Poupart-Lafarge said at an unveiling ceremony in Bremervoerde, the station where the trains will be refuelled with hydrogen.
