When trying to explain how hydrogen-powered engines work in a supercar, it is best to quote duPont Registry’s Andrew Nabors, who just nailed this concept. “Electricity and water are not friends so when they get together, water loses the fight and you end up with oxygen bubbles on the negative side and hydrogen on the positive. Hydrogen is lonely without oxygen, and a fuel cell is the best place for them to party. What happens in the fuel cell stays in the fuel cell, and you end up with water and electricity.”
Pininfarina Sends Hydrogen-Powered H2 Speed Concept into production
The very bizarre, hydrogen-powered H2 Speed Concept supercar unveiled in March at the Geneva auto show will be created with 10 examples carrying an approximate price of $2.5 million. Set for release in 2017, the H2 Speed will be equipped with two electric motors that will assist the hydrogen-powered engine in producing some very astonishing numbers to include a 0-60 mph in just 2.3 seconds!
