French manufacturer, Hopium, is partnering with Saint-Gobain Sekurit to co-develop glazing for the Hopium Māchina, its hydrogen-powered sedan.

Hopium intends to build on the experience of Saint-Gobain Sekurit to provide solutions that combine design, safety, thermal and acoustic comfort.

“We are proud to be able to collaborate with a major player in the French industrial heritage, as part of the development of the Hopium Māchina,” said Hopium CEO and co-founder, Olivier Lombard.

“We share with Saint-Gobain Sekurit’s teams the same taste for innovation and the desire to explore future solutions to push the limits of technology.”

For his part, Saint-Gobain Sekurit VP Sales, Marketing & Projects, Tim Jurkowski, added: “Saint-Gobain Sekurit is delighted to support Hopium, a French start-up committed to green mobility. Saint-Gobain is pursuing its objective of reducing the group’s environmental impact, which is also reflected in solutions adapted to a more sustainable mobility.”

The process, already underway between the two entities, should lead to the presentation in 2022, of the first pre-industrialisation vehicles of the Hopium Māchina.
