the hydrogen vehicle going out to Las Vegas

Failing to survey the physical alleys of CES, the funny hydrogen vehicle of Hyperion makes a grand entrance into the streets of Las Vegas.

This virtual edition of CES will have tasted very different from previous years, but that did not prevent manufacturers from unveiling all their latest innovations, from new screen technologies from LG, Samsung and Sony to screens. rollable from LG or TCL. But on the automotive side – usually one of the big chunks at this show – not much to eat except this new look at Sony’s Vision-S. It was without counting on the American manufacturer Hyperion, who took advantage of the holding of the virtual show of the CES to run his strange vehicle on hydrogen in the streets of Las Vegas.

The Hyperion XP-1 was talked about last summer, when the curtain was raised. The car, which sports a rather atypical look with its carbon fiber chassis, is even more original in terms of the technology it uses: a hydrogen fuel cell. According to the brand, this would allow it a record range of 1,653 kilometers, and a top speed exceeding 350 km / h. It would also be able to go from 0 to 96 km / h in just 2.2 seconds. Compared to a conventional electric car, hydrogen combustion also allows a much faster charging time, since it only takes a few minutes (or the time of a conventional full tank) to recharge the vehicle with pressurized hydrogen. Inside, the vehicle is equally modern with a huge 98-inch curved display with gesture controls.

For this surprise outing in the streets of Vegas (but also in the Nevada desert), the Hyperion XP-1 was also dressed in a camouflage-style paint … which did not go unnoticed. The firm plans to start production of this new kind of vehicle in 2022, and hopes to manufacture 300 units as a first step.
