Development of the Jeep Commander 2 Fuel Cell Hybrid Electric Vehicle 2001-01-2508

On-board fuel reforming for fuel cells is an important strategic option in the development of mass production fuel cell vehicles. Based on a reforming concept similar to DaimlerChrysler's NECAR 3, the concept prototype Jeep Commander 2 implements a methanol reforming fuel cell engine with a 90 kW NiMH battery pack. Driving and dynamometer testing results show good driving performance, fuel economy and emissions. However, significant improvements are needed on fuel reforming systems to achieve competitive levels of power density, cost and reliability, compared to internal combustion engines.
