Gaussin we know it for the self-driving electric vehicles used in transport logistics. Now the brand wants to dare even more, and presents H2 Racing Truck , defined by the company French “ the racing truck 100% hydrogen and most powerful electric ever made “. And this is not a concept: the truck is absolutely true, and will participate in the World Rally-Raid Championship with the Dakar
It is not a concept, it has been said, but it still wants to be a “demonstration” vehicle, to show the performance and reliability of a vehicle that anticipates the first road trucks arriving in the 2022 . “ This project “, says CEO Christophe Gaussin, “ has become a reality and represents a technological result and the result of years of work and experience in zero-emission mobility “.
The secret of H2 Racing Truck is the light body made around the hydrogen and electric powertrain based on the proprietary platform. Hydrogen is refueled in 20 minutes for an autonomy of 800 kilometers, the battery changes in 3 minutes for a range of 400 kilometres.
The truck was designed by Pininfarina and is available in five different models : road tractor, self-driving, for distribution, for construction and for racing.
