Nor is it Hydrogen power not completely dead in the car! After industry leader Toyota presented various electric models and changed its strategy regarding fuel cells and hydrogen, there were great fears that this was the nail in the coffin for the type of drive. But it doesn't have to come to that, because the small but fine racing car manufacturer Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus (SCG), which also gained notoriety in Germany through its participation in the 24-hour race on the Nürburgring, is now presenting one Rally buggy. And he calls himself Hydrogen boat and has one fuel cell drive, which is designed similarly to that of the Toyota Mirai. A gas version of the buggy, which earned a class win at the 2019 Baja 1000, is also available for a whopping $287.500. But today we introduce you to the fuel cell version of the desert racer, which is a pointer towards the future of motorsport.
Desert buggy with hydrogen tank!
The most obvious change from the gas version of the SCG Baja Buggy is the gigantic one hydrogen tank on the loading area of the desert truck, which requires the entire flatbed. guard and Bracing, which are intended to ensure the safety of all passengers in the event of an accident, are also located on the vehicle. SCG plans to compete at the Baja 2022 in November 1000 with the hydrogen buggy. It would be the first racing team to use a zero-emission vehicle there, and there are also plans for a hydrogen infrastructure that will allow the buggy to be refueled in the middle of the North American desert. The racing team and small series manufacturer has big plans when it comes to fuel cell drives. One plans from Baja Buggy "Hydrogen Boat" also a version with street legal, which should be a harbinger of a possible pickup from the still young brand, which also has an H2 drive.
Inside there is room for two!
In contrast to the four-seater combustion engine, the SCG Hydrogen Boat can only accommodate two people. the Crew cab body fell victim to the huge hydrogen tank and the additional components that serve to ensure vehicle safety. Unfortunately, we don't have a glimpse of the interior (yet), but the cockpit is probably kept spartan again in order to save as much weight as possible.
No information on performance and top speed!
Unfortunately we have to Performance data and to top speed of the desert racer also no information. All we know is that the vehicle has a automatic transmission and all wheel drive has. However, it is very likely that Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus will install the fuel cell drive from the planned pickup that has already been presented in the desert racer.
Our conclusion on the Baja Buggy with H2 drive:
From our point of view, a ray of hope in the electrified, new automotive world! The future could belong to hydrogen if more car manufacturers dare to promote the technology more!
