WAE Technologies has revealed its latest hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle innovation.
The ‘ultra-high performance’ hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle platform (EVRh) has been developed to demonstrate the potential of hydrogen powered powertrain systems.
It was produced in Oxfordshire, England.
Paul McNamara, Technical Director for WAE Technologies, said: “Since its inception in 2010, WAE has been dedicated to innovating cutting-edge and transformative technologies across a variety of applications and industries.”
Featuring a lightweight composite structure, the high-performance H2 fuel tank and battery system are situated in the middle of the vehicle.
The firm says that the platform’s design flexibility enables manufacturers to create multiple configurations from track-only vehicle, where power-to-weight is maximised, to roadgoing models of both open-roof Targa and fixed-roof GT style.
