promises up to 1,000km of range with just three minutes to refuel

The automotive market is now focused on the launch of electric vehicles. However, other sustainable options are being developed.

Some manufacturers have chosen to develop their cars with a hydrogen fuel cell, a technology they consider to be the solution of the future.

One of these companies is Hopium, a young French car manufacturer that has worked in recent years to develop the Hopium Machina, a vehicle that aims to make a difference.


Autonomy of 1000 km and 368 KW (500 HP) of power.

With 368 kW (500 hp) distributed by the all-wheel drive, this vehicle can reach 0-100 km/h in less than 5 seconds. In addition, it reaches a maximum speed limited to 230 km/h.

However, the strong point of the Hopium Machina is its autonomy. The manufacturer guarantees that this car will be able to reach 1,000 kilometers, a value difficult to achieve in current electric vehicles.

One of the big advantages of Hopium Machina is refueling.

Hydrogen can be refueled in just 3 minutes, figures similar to today’s combustion cars.

When will the Hopium Machina Vision arrive?

With manufacturing in France from 2025, all components used will come from Europe to reduce the carbon footprint of the entire process.

Hopium therefore hopes that its new car will become a reference on the market and that hydrogen will become a real alternative in the mobility of the future.


With a price of around 120,000 euros, the Hopium Machina Vision can now be reserved, even if there are still more than two years left. According to Hopium, the goal is to produce 20,000 units per year.

Therefore, the big negative point is the price announced by Hopium, 120 thousand euros is and will be a prohibitive value for most people.
