The H2 Speed, described as being “halfway between a competition prototype and a production supercar", uses similar technical underpinnings to the Green GT H2 racing car, albeit clothed in Pininfarina’s distinctive body.
It is driven by two electric synchronous motors with permanent magnets. With maximum power of 496bhp, the car is capable of 0-62mph acceleration of 3.4sec. The power is sent to the rear wheels and the H2 Speed uses torque vectoring to optimise performance. The concept also features a brake energy recuperation system.
The H2 Speed is 4700mm long, 2000mm wide and 1087mm high, with a wheelbase of 2900mm. It weighs 1420kg.
The hydrogen fuel tanks are located along the sides of the car and faired in, as opposed to being completely enclosed, so as not to add excess weight to the body structure. A window in the rear of the fairing enables access to the filling cap for the tanks. Refuelling is said to take three minutes.
