As we are approaching the green hydrogen economy, it is only fitting that a start-up has started selling hydrogen-powered bikes to be incorporated into corporate and municipal transport fleets. French firm Pragma, based in Biarritz, has started factory production of the bikes this month.

Pragma Industries makes fuel cells for military use, but has sold around 60 hydrogen bikes to French municipalities Saint Lo, Cherbourg, Chambery and Bayonne. The company also offers refuelling stations, but at €7,500 per bike and €30,000 for the station, they are currently too expensive for the consumer market.

That hasn’t stopped Pragma from targeting corporates, and the company plans to manufacture 150 bikes this year. The Alpha bikes can cover 62 miles on a two-litre tank of hydrogen – similar to the range of an e-bike – but refills take a matter of minutes. In fact, one kilo of hydrogen is believed to hold around 600 times more energy than a one-kilo lithium battery.
