As the first Chinese carmaker to develop fuel cell technology, SAIC Motor launched the Phoenix No.1 fuel cell vehicle R&D project in 2001. Its subsidiary Shanghai Hydrogen Propulsion Technology Co., Ltd. ("SHPT") launched the M4 fuel cell stack platform as well as the M4 stack platform-based PROME M4H fuel cell stack in October 2021, with 44 tier-one auto parts 100% locally sourced in China.

SAIC Motor has rolled out FCVs across many vehicle segments like sedan, MPV, light bus, light-duty truck, and heavy-duty truck, which have been put into commercial operation in over 10 cities in China and cumulatively run for several million kilometers.

In 2014, SAIC's Roewe 750 fuel cell vehicle was included in the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology ("MIIT")'s announcement, the first of its kind in China. In 2016, the Roewe 950 became the first fuel cell sedan to be announced, sold and licensed in China.

In 2020, SAIC's Yuejin fuel cell logistics vehicles and special fuel cell vehicles were announced by the MIIT. In the same year, the world's first fuel cell MPV, the MAXUS EUNIQ 7, officially rolled off the assembly line and hit the market.
