Pininfarina H2 Speed: Best Concept at Geneva Motor Show 2016
H2 Speed concept by Pininfarina has been awarded Best Concept at 2016 Geneva Motor Show among the Editors’ Choice Awards assigned by American magazine Autoweek.
“I am excited and proud for the Best Concept Award to the H2 Speed, which is the best interpretation of the Pininfarina spirit, of its tradition and its vision of the future – comments Chairman Paolo Pininfarina. H2 Speed is Pininfarina’s innovative vision of a high performance track car based on revolutionary hydrogen fuel cell technology already subjected to severe track testing by Green GT. A showpiece of style and technology in the name of sportiness, performance and pure, environmentally responsible driving fun. The H2 Speed will appeal to passionate people who love speed, performance and innovation and, at the same time, are attracted by the exclusivity typical of a Pininfarina-designed vehicle produced in a limited series. “The feedback obtained from the H2 Speed confirms the validity of our strategy focused on designing and developing special cars, namely vehicles produced in limited series for collectors and lovers of unique vehicles – adds the CEO Silvio Pietro Angori.
Halfway between a racing prototype and a production supercar, the H2 Speed is the world’s first hydrogen, high performance car thanks to the ‘Full Hydrogen Power’ technology presented by Green GT, a powerful electric-hydrogen fuel cell drive chain. The result is a zero emissions vehicle that can reach 300 km/h while releasing just water vapour into the atmosphere. With a maximum power of 503 horsepower, the engine accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds. Also notable is the rapid refueling, unknown to traditional electric cars: a full tank of hydrogen takes just 3 minutes. The H2 Speed almost completely eliminates noise pollution too, the sound emitted by the motor being close to total silence. “The Best Concept award is a great motivation for me and my team in the lead towards producing this innovative piece of design that embodies technology, sustainability, harmony, aerodynamic flow – said Chief Design Officer Fabio Filippini. With the H2 Speed, Pininfarina confirms its commitment to excellence in design and research applied to sustainable mobility, the strong points of a company that is also intensively occupied in engineering services and in the development of special cars and limited series of exclusive models. http://pluginfuture.com/pininfarina-h2-speed-best-concept-at-geneva-motor-show-2016/http://pluginfuture.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Pininfarina_1.jpghttp://pluginfuture.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Pininfarina_1-150x150.jpgNewsVehiclesFuel cell,Hydrogen fuel cellH2 Speed concept by Pininfarina has been awarded Best Concept at 2016 Geneva Motor Show among the Editors' Choice Awards assigned by American magazine Autoweek.
