Dutch construction company Jos Scholman ordered 16 Opel Vivaro-e HYDROGEN vans. Equipped with hydrogen fuel cells, the light commercial vehicles will expand the company’s fleet in a sustainable way. Jos Scholman is a family business relying on around 250 employees and is run by founder Jos Scholman Sr. together with his two sons, Robert and Jos Jr. The Dutch company is fully committed to hydrogen to make their fleet more sustainable.
“I am so pleased with this delivery of 16 Opel Vivaro-e Hydrogen in the Netherlands, once again confirming Stellantis postion as front runner in mass-produced hydrogen commercial vehicles. I would like to thank the Scholman company for having chosen one of our brands to further enhance their sustainability, while we are making further steps in the execution of our Stellantis Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan”, said Uwe Hochgeschurtz, Chief Operating Officer Enlarged Europe at Stellantis.
Why the choice fell on the Opel Vivaro-e HYDROGEN
“We see a major role for hydrogen in the transition to sustainable energy sources and fuels. We have had hydrogen cars in our company since 2019, currently with around thirty vehicles altogether, including tractors and large mobile cranes. We are delighted to now be adding sixteen Opel Vivaro-e HYDROGEN light commercial vehicles to our fleet”, added Robert Scholman, co-owner of Jos Scholman.
The zero emissions Opel Vivaro-e HYDROGEN is based on the battery-electric Opel Vivaro-e. It has a range of 400 km (WLTP) and takes approximately five minutes to refuel.
