In cope with increasing serious emission problems, Chinese government has officially launched a series policies and legislations to stimulate the development and deployment of zero emission vehicles (ZEV). Currently in China, ZEV is heading to a crossroad – the competition and choice among battery powered vehicle, hybrid system, and fuel cell powered vehicle. Leveraging strong commercialization capability on fuel cell system and well-defined supplier chain, Telos Auto Power Systems (TAPS) focuses on bringing FCCV, including metro bus and industrial truck, to China market. Aiming at being the leader of manufacturing power systems of FCCV in China, TAPS has formed a holistic strategy as below:

· Establish a multifunction platform of advanced fuel cell power systems in combination with battery (fuel cell and battery hybrid systems, FCBHS) for automotive applications;

· Team up with prestigious vehicle and battery makers on FCBHS and FCCV forward engineering;

· Lead the efforts of supply chain integration and localization;

· Collect and utilize Big Data of FCCV end-to-end from manufacturing, daily usage, demonstration, to commercial operation, including operations of hydrogen infrastructure for further technology and business development.
