New Flyer Industries F40LF
|New Flyer F40LF|
|Years of manufacture||1994, 1996/1997, 2004|
|Power/Fuel||Ballard Hydrogen Fuel Cell|
The Ballard Fuel Cell models were mainly for demonstration and evaluation purposes, and are no longer in mass production. The closest model to these currently in production is the HE40LF, which uses a hydrogen combustion engine in conjunction with a hybrid electric drive.
Six prototype models were produced by New Flyer in conjunction with Ballard Power Systems that ran in service:
|P7244||BC Transit / CMBC||2FYF2LJ15TU016949||Built December 1996, Vehicle altered by Ballard Power Systems with Hydrogen Fuel Cell Engine December 1997, Converted to DE40LF|
|P7245||BC Transit / CMBC||2FYF2LJ15TU016950||Built December 1996, Vehicle altered by Ballard Power Systems with Hydrogen Fuel Cell Engine December 1997|
|P7246||BC Transit / CMBC||2FYF2LJ15TU016951||Built December 1996, Vehicle altered by Ballard Power Systems with Hydrogen Fuel Cell Engine December 1997, Converted to DE40LF|
|5900||Chicago Transit Authority||2FYF2LJ15TU016952||Built December 1996?, Hydrogen Fuel Cell Engine|
|5901||Chicago Transit Authority||2FYF2LJ15TU016953||Built December 1996?, Hydrogen Fuel Cell Engine|
|5902||Chicago Transit Authority||2FYF2LJ15TU016954||Built December 1996?, Hydrogen Fuel Cell Engine|
There were also two first-generation models built. One demoed with SunLine for a year and was marketed under the Xcellsis name (now owned by Ballard). The other was likely a 1993 Proof of Concept model painted in the BC Transit scheme.
In 2004, a F40LF was built for ISE Corporation. The serial number of this bus is 26989.
