Mazda “Premacy Hydrogen RE Hybrid”
First New Hydrogen Vehicle Supporting the Promotion of Hydrogen Energy
to be Delivered to Iwatani

Iwatani Corporation

 

Iwatani Corporation (head offices: Tokyo and Osaka, president: Akiji Makino, capital: 20 billion yen) has newly leased the Mazda “Premacy Hydrogen RE Hybrid” to replace the existing hydrogen engine vehicle RX-8 from Mazda Motor Corporation (“Mazda”). The first vehicle will be delivered today, May 26, 2009.

In addition to the existing dual fuel system developed for the Mazda “RX-8 Hydrogen RE,” which can run on both hydrogen and gasoline,, the “Premacy Hydrogen RE Hybrid” significantly improves driving performance by newly adopting a hybrid system and achieves a hydrogen fuel range of 200km, doubling that of the existing system.

The vehicle to be delivered today is the second with a hydrogen rotary engine to be leased to Iwatani following the “RX-8 Hydrogen RE,” which was delivered in March 2006. The “Premacy Hydrogen RE Hybrid” will be used for business purposes at our Chugoku block branch before being relocated to the Kansai International Airport, where it will be stationed mainly at the JHFC Kansai Airport Hydrogen Station. We will evaluate it from every aspect and use it effectively to promote the supply of information and proper knowledge to establish a hydrogen infrastructure and to raise the awareness of children who will lead the next generation.
