Pininfarina Unveils Hydrogen Fuel Cell Car Concept H2Speed

Pininfarina, an Italian car design and coachbuilder firm has unveiled a hydrogen fuel cell concept car called H2Speed at the Geneva International Motor 2016.

H2Speed has been designed to be a high performance track car powered by hydrogen fuel cell technology.

The company says that this concept car will come in a limited series, halfway between a racing prototype and full-fledged production supercar.

The supercar is driven by 2 electric synchronous motors with permanent magnet with a maximum power of 370kW (503hp).

These motors are in turn powered by two stacks of PEMFC Fuel cell 210kW.

The power is transmitted directly to the wheels without any clutch, differential or gear shifting. It only uses torque vectoring.H2Speed supercar can reach speeds of up to 300km/h and accelerate from 0-100km/h in 3.4 seconds.

According to the company, the fuel tank can store 6kgs of hydrogen which can be refueled in just 3 minutes in an easier way.

H2Speed features brake energy regeneration to recover energy when brakes are applied.

The supercar has carbon chassis with front and rear wishbone suspension and carbon brakes.

Pininfarina chairman, Paolo Pininfarina said: "The H2 Speed is the symbol of Pininfarina's dedication to purity, elegance and innovation.

"The spirit of the project is directly linked to the great aerodynamic tradition often explored by Pininfarina over the decades as well as to our most recent dream cars.

"The present concept is a synthesis of technology, sustainability, harmony, aerodynamic flow and, above all, speed.

"And it is also the best way to confirm Pininfarina's role as the standard-bearer of the aesthetic values of Italian design in the world and to strengthen its brand, the company's true hallmark".
