Introducing the NAMX HUV vehicle with interchangeable hydrogen pods.
The new SUV is designed by Pininfarina and was created by a Franco-Moroccan startup.
NAMX has just presented the concept version of its first vehicle, an SUV with interchangeable hydrogen capsules, a unique system in this type of vehicle.
Although the vehicle is still in the design phase, NAMX hopes to market it in 2025.
According to NAMX, two trim levels will initially be offered from the 2025 launch of the HUV with interchangeable hydrogen pods. The first of the levels will be basic, with rear-wheel drive and 296 HP. It will be able to reach 100 kilometers per hour in 6.5 seconds and can accelerate up to 200 kilometers per hour. Pricing for this model will start at $68,410.
The other version will be the GTH, with four-wheel drive and 542 horsepower. This model will have a top speed of 250 kilometers per hour and will reach 100 kilometers per hour in just 4.5 seconds. The price of the GTH model will be around $99,984
Removable and interchangeable hydrogen pods are what make these vehicles truly unique in their market segment.
The VHU has a unique shape to store H2 fuel to help deliver a completely different experience to its drivers. NAMX has patented a technology that combines both a fixed H2 tank and six removable additional capsules that can be used as secondary tanks. This is intended to provide additional range and refueling options.
According to the new automaker, the vehicle will have a range of up to 800 kilometers.
It intends to create a distribution network of removable capsules making it possible both to increase the availability of the H2 necessary to supply the vehicle and to offer drivers the possibility of extending their autonomy.
“science fiction enthusiast, [el cofundador de NAMX] Thomas de Lussac chose to give the shape of the vehicle the cutting edge of the coming era.said a recent press release from NAMX about their HUV with interchangeable hydrogen pods. “His taste for American design of the 50s and 60s, his predilection for ‘Muscle Cars’, inspired him to create a car that goes against the current, slick and conventional design of electric cars.“.
