According to information on the Internet and the company profile in LinkedIn, the last few years, it operates in stealth-mode. All the activities are kept secret and not advertised anywhere. Work on hydrogen supercar is quite a long time, and its a test prototype was released for testing in 2015. On the website Hyperion Motors are no details about the project, with the exception of the statement that she was able to “adapt space technologies for use on normal roads”.
Attempts to build a hydrogen-powered supercar made before. In 2016, the Italian Studio Pininfarina and the firm GreenGT unveiled in Geneva the concept H2 Speed. Hydrogen compartment was equipped with two synchronous motors and a battery 20 ampere-hours (at 400 volts). Its propulsion system was developed 503 horsepower and allowed to accelerate to a hundred in 3.4 seconds.
Later based Mahindra Group brand Automobili Pininfarina has announced that it will release 12 instances H2 Speed. Commodity coupe will be equipped with a 653-strong hydrogen plant, but the performance will still remain at the level of the concept.
