Hydrogen-powered car with 1,000-mile range revealed

The Hyperion XP-1 hydrogen car has been shown off, and it can travel up to 1,000 miles.

In August 2020, the Hyperion XP-1 was initially introduced. The Hyperion HP-1 prototype attracted a lot of interest as it displayed its cutting-edge design. Some people like its design’s sleek distinctiveness, while others thought it was just too strange. It is easy to understand why some people could find it appealing and others might not. The entire design is outlandish, with bizarre proportions, intakes, and features protruding from the bodywork, including the movable blades with solar panel covers.

With a full tank, this hydrogen vehicle can go 1,016 miles (1,635 kilometers). The carbon fiber H2 tank is refillable in less than five minutes. The powertrain consists of fuel cells, supercapacitors in place of batteries, a three-speed transmission, and four axial-flux electric motors that drive the vehicle’s four wheels.

With a combined power output of more than 2,000 hp, it is possible to accelerate from zero to sixty mph (0-100 kilometer per hour) in under 2.2 seconds, with a top speed of 221 mph (356 kph).

The XP-1 hydrogen automobile from Hyperion is intended to be produced in 300 units in the US. It has not yet decided on the price for this car but plans to do so in the future. The original plan was to begin making the car at the beginning of 2022.
