There’s been unprecedented global demand for H2X’s new Australian developed hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle with $50 million in order requests in just the first 4 days of offering.
Since order requests opened to the public, over 200 order requests have been received from all over Australia and the world, including Netherlands, Germany and Malaysia.
Unprecedented demand for H2X Global’s Hydrogen Ute
Customers ordering the Warrego Ute include significant energy companies and private buyers.
Haim Ptasznik is the Director and chief engineer of Veida, a company providing green eco-friendly energy solutions and hardware, and one of the first purchasers of the vehicle.
“The Warrego is the vehicle that we believe the community of green energy pioneers have been waiting for, especially with Hydrogen already at parity with diesel kwh for kwh.”
“Not to mention, the problems that EV’s pose to the electrical network with grid congestion and excessive unpredictable demand disappear, with hydrogen as a supply.”
“Veida works with customers to facilitate the creation of alternative, green energy solutions and the demand for Green Hydrogen in Australia is booming,” said Haim Ptasznik.
“H2X is enabling us to be the first to integrate Hydrogen Vehicles and their power trains into our solutions. An Australian Vehicle powered by Green Hydrogen is too good to pass up.”
The Hydrogen Ute, will be unveiled at the global launch on Queensland’s Gold Coast in November 2021. Delivery of the vehicle is slated for April 2022.
Features of H2X Global’s Hydrogen powered vehicles
The Warrego is the first in a range of uniquely designed and developed fuel cell electric vehicles that will be released by H2X over the next 24 months.
H2X’s vehicles are fitted with the Powertrain System that is developed to improve efficiency by maximising kinetic energy usage and offers flexibility for users depending on their needs.
Warrego harnesses hydrogen power and is designed to meet a growing demand for efficient, cost effective and sustainable cars, trucks, buses and other forms of transport.
“The pre-orders have exceeded all of our expectations. We knew it would be popular but we’ve been blown away by the demand for the Warrego,” said H2X Global CEO Brendan Norman.
“Orders came from around the world. Word has got out that we have something special.”
It features a 200kw motor system, 66kw and optional 90kw fuel cell systems and 60kw -100kw output energy storage systems between the battery and super capacitor units.
The Warrego has a five hundred kilometre(500km) driving range on a mix of highway and city roads within a quick refuelling time of three to five minutes.
H2X has a wide network of support partners in Australia and developing in key locations globally capable of providing accelerated distribution, servicing, and after sales support.
With the unique H2X Hybrid Fuel Cell System, a vehicle can run on pure hydrogen, which drastically reduces refuelling time and increases driving range and hydrogen efficiency.
H2X’s fuel cell technology is based on experience in vehicle development and targets high use vehicles for commercial and sharing purposes where the availability of the vehicle is key.
H2X is pushing into new markets, with a series of products that will show new ways of working with hydrogen and bringing clean energy to many different applications in cities.
With a diverse range of products off a common platform, H2X can quickly support financially sound business cases for hydrogen rather than battery electric for commercial vehicles.
BEVs have long charging times, limited expected life, and issues with the disposal of batteries. H2X makes hydrogen vehicles including utes, motorbikes, trains, delivery vehicles and ships.
The company is preparing for a listing on a major global exchange and is undertaking a capital raising as it works to position itself as a premium hydrogen vehicle manufacturer.
Customers can reserve their new Warrego Ute now for no upfront cost.
