Rapido Series 10: Equipped with EFOY fuel cells as standard

  • EFOY fuel cells are equipped as standard in the new Rapido Series 10
  • From now on, all three models of this top series will be available direct from the factory with a quiet, weather-independent and environmentally-friendly on-board power supply available as standard
  • The equipping of the new top models with EFOY fuel cells as standard is a further milestone in the long and successful collaboration between Rapido and EFOY

Brunnthal/Munich, Germany, September 23, 2010 – Rapido SAS, one of the leading European motorhome manufacturers, is relying on the EFOY fuel cell to supply energy for its new Series 10 vehicles. From now on, purchasers of any of the Series 10 models will get environmentally-friendly energy that is continuously available from the EFOY fuel cell in their new vehicle, as standard, directly from the factory. Series 10 represents the greatest possible comfort. This tandem-axle model, eight-and-a-half metres in length and weighing five tonnes overall, offers guests an impressive kitchen, a living room for eight people, a separate shower and the greatest payload of all the Rapido vehicles. The EFOY fuel cell provides quiet, weather independent and emission-free electricity on board, thus guaranteeing maximum freedom away from the mains power supply. Using EFOY fuel cells as standard equipment of the new top models is a further milestone in the long and successful collaboration between Rapido and EFOY.

'We have relied on EFOY fuel cells in our vehicles for a few years now, because, for us, EFOY represents the best way of getting a quiet, reliable and environmentally-friendly energy supply in a motorhome,' says Pierre-Louis Guérineau, Director of Marketing & Sales at Rapido SAS. 'This is why it's also natural for us to make optimal electricity supplies available to our customers as standard in the new Series 10 top models.'

'We are really pleased about working together with Rapido. Rapido was the first partner who made EFOY fuel cells available as standard equipment to its customers. Silent, lightweight and emission-free off-grid power supply is a customer benefit which has become standard for Rapido customers ever since' says Dr. Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC Energy AG. 'The current series equipment in the top Rapido models again shows that our EFOY fuel cells are the first choice when it comes to clean, weather-independent and quiet energy supply in motorhomes'.
