H2x to Launch Hydrogen-powered Fuel Cell Ute

Hydrogen fuel cell transportation group H2X Global is launching its first vehicle, a modified modified utility vehicle, 14 months after the company launched its ambitious program in @AuManufacturing news.

Gone are the multiple passenger and commercial vehicles with unique bodies mooted then by founder Brendan Norman, replaced by a slimmed down but now globally-focused range beginning with the more modest retrofitting of an existing ute.

The Warrego Ute (pictured) will be unveiled at the global launch on Queensland’s Gold Coast in November 2021, with the company taking orders for delivery slated for April 2022.

H2X’s vehicles are fitted with the H2X Powertrain System with a Hybrid Fuel Cell System, believed to be manufactured in Australia.

Featuring a 200kW motor system, 66KW and optional 90KW fuel cell system, and a 60-100KW output energy storage with battery and super Capacitors, the Warrego has a 500km driving range within a quick refuelling time of 3-5 minutes.

Norman said the company would launch a range of fuel cell vehicles in the next two years for cars, trucks, buses and other forms of transport.

However, there is no news on where

Norman said: “We believe we are the first Australian company to produce a commercially viable vehicle to meet those demands,” Brendan said.

The company is preparing for a listing on a major global exchange in late 2021/early 2022.
