Stadler’s hydrogen-powered train achieves the Guinness World Record title by traveling more than 1,700 miles on one tank of hydrogen.

Stadler has set the Guinness World Record title for the furthest distance achieved by a hydrogen-powered passenger train, the FLIRT H2, without refueling, traveling a total of 2,803 kilometers (1741.7 miles) for over 46 hours on one fuel supply.

The FLIRT H2, unveiled to the public at InnoTrans 2022 in Berlin, showcases Stadler’s dedication to innovation. Extensive efforts went into seamlessly integrating fuel cells and hydrogen storage into the FLIRT commuter train line, with rigorous testing conducted in Switzerland and the United States.

As testing neared completion, Stadler demonstrated the reliability and performance of the FLIRT H2. Under the scrutiny of Guinness World Records adjudicators, the train embarked on its record-setting journey, cementing its status as a technological marvel in sustainable transportation.

Dr. Ansgar Brockmeyer, EVP of Marketing and Sales at Stadler said:

“This world record establishes the ideal performance range of our hydrogen version of the best-selling FLIRT Electric Multiple Unit, the FLIRT H2. This is a monumental achievement from our entire team and we are very proud to hold another record title.”
