The Panda Hydrogen is a prototype fuel cell-type hydrogen vehicle based on the Fiat Panda introduced in 2006.

A Nuvera Fuel Cells "Andromeda II" fuel cell stack generates energy to power an electric motor directly, i.e. without a battery. Panda Hydrogen produces 40 kW (54 hp) power and it can achieve top speed of 130 km/h (81 mph). Operating range is over 200 km (120 mi) in urban driving.
