In other TVS news, according to reports, it was revealed that the company is working on a hydrogen-powered iteration of its popular electric scooter the iQube. Just a while ago a few of the patents bearing the name and designs of the Indian automaker surfaced online and from those, it was deduced that they are for a hydrogen-powered scooter. The said leaked patent documents showed that the company is working on a scooter with two hydrogen “fuel” canisters mounted to the front downtube of a scooter’s frame. The design illustrations further reveal that a filler nozzle is located on the front apron, and a pipe connects the two canisters.
As for the hydrogen fuel stack, it will be located under the seat, where the battery sits in a traditional electric scooter. Additionally, according to the patent, this scooter will also have a battery pack underneath the floorboard, the size of which has not yet been determined. This batter will store energy produced during braking or deceleration as well as provide extra performance when needed. When power requirements are reduced, the fuel cell may also replenish the battery pack. For the motor, TVS could be deploying a similar hub-mounted 4.4kW motor that can be seen on the outgoing electric iQube scooter.
