MG Euniq 7 MPV Introduces Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technology; Claims 605km Range

  • A fuel cell provides electricity on demand in FCEVs, eliminating the need for heavy battery packs.
  • The only byproduct is clean water as hydrogen gas and oxygen are combined to create electricity for the drive motor.

MG Motors has taken the wraps off its all-new Euniq 7 fuel-cell powered electric vehicle (FCEV) at the ongoing Auto Expo 2023. It’s a three-row MPV that is already available on sale globally as Maxus EUNIQ 7.

The Euniq 7 uses the brand’s 3rd-gen fuel cell technology called ”PROMO P390”. Unlike regular electric vehicles (EVs), the MG Euniq 7 FCEV do not require heavy battery packs to run; instead, they use fuel cells that produce electricity through the means of chemical reactions between hydrogen gas with oxygen. The only emission that comes out of the Euniq 7 is clean water. Also, it can operate at extreme temperatures ranging from -30° to +90° C.

MG claims that the Euniq 7 FCEV can run approximately 605 kilometres on a single tank of hydrogen. Paired with a permanent magnet electric motor, it delivers a maximum power output of 203PS. MG states that it will get three fuel tanks which will offer a combined capacity of 6.4 kg. These fuel tanks can be filled up in just 3 minutes, as opposed to electric vehicles, which take at least an hour for a decent range.

Design-wise, the Euniq 7 looks exactly similar to its Maxus counterpart, featuring a tall front profile dominated by a chrome slat grille flanked by swept-back LED headlamps. The MPV is around 5.2 meters in length and almost 2 meters wide and has power sliding doors like Kia Carnival for easy ingress-egress.

Inside, the MPV sports a minimalist dashboard layout with a floating infotainment system. Other features of the Euniq 7 include a digital driver’s display, a panoramic sunroof, automatic climate control, multiple airbags, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), etc. Globally, the model comes in a 2+2+3 layout.

The Euniq 7 MPV won’t launch in India any time soon since there is no infrastructure to support FCEVs.
