Robert Bosch GmbH will open a fuel cell development and production center in Wuxi, China, in 2021, Automotive News China reports.

Bosch says the facility will be its first outside Germany to be devoted to fuel cell technologies. The center will design, test and make fuel-cell systems for the local market.

Last year about 1,300 fuel cell vehicles, almost all of them commercial buses, were sold in the country, according to the China Assn. of Automobile Manufacturers.
