Hydrogen Powered Pininfarina H2 Speed Debuts In Geneva

Written By:

Mahindra owned Italian automotive design house Pininfarina have unveiled the hydrogen powered H2 Speed concept at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.

Pininfarina worked closely with the Franco-Swiss company GreenGT to develop the powertrain for the concept which took two years to develop. The powertrain consists of two electric motors that are driven by lightweight hydrogen fuel cells and produce 496bhp of power. The fuel cells get the hydrogen needed from two hydrogen fuel tanks. 

The H2 Speed weighs in at just 1420 kilograms and can go from 0–100km/h in just  3.4 seconds.

The H2 looks like something one would find on the grid of the Le Mans 24 hours . With its angular looks up front and the sleek front splitter along with the angular rear diffusor and the spoiler which meets up with the roof like in a LMP1 car, the H2 Speed is all about racing.

Pinifarina designed the H2 Speed to "explore the potential of racing tech", so don't expect any examples of these on the road.
