Despite everything pointing to the future car being aimed at models supported by electrification … There is always that question … So, what about hydrogen cars? Well, in fact, hydrogen cars are still not entirely forgotten.
In fact, in order to prove this, Viritech wants to demonstrate the capabilities of this technology with its new hypercar! A vehicle that promises more than 1100 hp of power!
In short, hydrogen is a type of fuel that currently presents many challenges. However, Warkwickshire’s MIRA Technology Park will now be the breeding ground for a hydrogen “halo” model full of claw and power.
Viritech aims to be the world leader for hydrogen solutions!
This is the main objective of the manufacturer and is the necessary foundation to create a model of this caliber. Not only powered by hydrogen but capable of outperforming the vast majority of models on the market, but at what price?
Now, we are talking about 1.73 million euros!
A curious price … But of course, this model will be the company’s way of demonstrating all the capabilities of its new fuel cell technology. However, the main objective is to reach passenger cars, trucks, aircraft and even boats.
This will be the world’s first hydrogen hypercar!
The company has a strong focus on hydrogen, due to the many benefits of hydrogen compared to other types of fuel. After all, in addition to saving the environment, we also have to take into account a very significant reduction in the weight of the car, which is interestingly, one of the great difficulties in the electrical world. (To increase the autonomy of an electric car, it is necessary to insert more batteries. However, the batteries are heavy. In other words, it is a scale that quickly becomes unbalanced.)
However, within this field, the truth is that all the hardware needed for a hydrogen car also makes it heavy. However, Viritech has an asset here! Since it overcame this difficulty by using “graphene-reinforced hydrogen pressure vessels” in which they form a structural element of the chassis itself. In a nutshell, this will greatly reduce the weight of the vehicle.
In addition, the new hypercar will be capable of more than 800 km of autonomy in a single tank and the company has already demonstrated the design of an SUV that will be the future model of the company.
In short, the new electrical technologies are always surprising but hydrogen solutions may still be successful in the future. This if everything that this manufacturer promises to reach the market and of course at an affordable price.
