First truck to come for passengers will be a compact pickup.
Its hydrogen fuel cell platform could support a range of SUVs, utes, and commercial vehicles.
H2X will begin with commercial vehicles, a delivery van, in 2022.
The automotive landscape is changing all over the world. The COVID-19 pandemic is not the only reason why deviations are afoot however it may have accelerated them. Australia’s seen some disruptions including Holden officially closing its doors. But when a window closes, a door opens and this is where H2X steps in with its new hydrogen fuel-cell platform and technology.
H2X is currently working on its flexible hydrogen fuel-cell EV platform, of which prototypes should be ready in six months, which will first underpin a delivery van or ride-share vehicle. A midsize SUV should follow and arrive possibly as early as 2022.
The company’s goal is to create products in Australia, for Australians, hence the rendering of the 2-door pickup. The goal of the design was to create a buzz and generate consumer feedback, which it did, in the form of a desire for two more doors, to properly compete with the Toyota Hilux and the Ford Ranger.
