OKAY – So random idea…but if we all pooled together $100 bucks we might be able to afford the down payment to potentially get a loan to buy this bad boy. WE COULD ALL SHARE!!
The Hyperion XP-1 is everything a hydrogen and car enthusiast has dreamed of. The perfect hybrid of ridiculous and borderline unnecessary performance specs while also doing right by the environment.
Hyperion literally made this car as a way to demonstrate the insane amount of engineering that had to go into making a truly efficient PEM for hydrogen. Hyperion likely will end up selling limited numbers of these cars and focus on licensing most of the tech to other manufacturers.
The advantages of hydrogen don’t need to be restated but what Hyperion does prove is that hydrogen offers rapid refueling, clean travel, and crazy high performance in comparison to an Electric Vehicle. The hydrogen economy will be surrounding pure performance consumer vehicles not meant for mass market and large heavy duty commercial workloads like Nikola is doing.
