Vehicle Testing Testing to Commence

May 9, 2022

Vancouver, B.C., May 9, 2022 Vancouver, British Columbia – First Hydrogen Corp. (“FIRST  HYDROGEN” or the “Company”) (TSXV: FHYD) (OTC: FHYDF) (FSE: FIT) is pleased to announce by way of update that its two MAN-based fuel cell-powered light commercial demonstrator  vehicles (LCV), equipped with Ballard Power Systems’ (Ballard) fuel cells and currently being built  by AVL Powertrain UK, are on schedule to commence operational testing next month. These two vehicles are expected to be road legal by September 2022 allowing for trials with major fleet  operators. It is anticipated that these trials will be carried out with a significant number of fleet  operators and buyers based on the interest which has already been generated. These trials will serve  to enhance product development and create customer engagement and partnerships around First  Hydrogen Automotive’s future fleets of LCVs. 

Steve Gill, CEO of First Hydrogen Automotive stated, “We chose to start by developing road-legal  demonstrators using a donor platform that will enable customers to see, feel and experience the  benefits and operation of a hydrogen propulsion system in a familiar set-up and compare it directly  to an EV. This platform and design allow us to bring our product to customers in a much shorter 

timeframe. The base vehicle is derived from a M.A.N. eTGE van (part of the Volkswagen Group,  and the Ballard Fcgen®-LCS hydrogen-powered fuel cell and hydrogen tanks have been integrated  without any impact on the customer features of the van, such as interior space or load height. The  resulting vehicles will have over 500km of range capability, based on the Worldwide Harmonised  Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP), versus a 115km range when compared to a base EV, with the  same maximum speed. The refuelling time is typically five minutes.”
