The BMW Concept iX5 Hydrogen Protection VR6 is the world’s first certified hydrogen-powered armored vehicle.
The crossover is VR6 certified, which means it can withstand 7.62 caliber automatic fire and HG 85 hand grenade attacks. The laminated glass alone is 33mm thick.
The protection system of the hydrogen model is similar to that used in the 2019 BMW X5 Protection VR6, but special attention is paid here to the protection of the hydrogen tanks in the lower part of the body. The bottom is supplemented with innovative armor, and the tanks have undergone separate burst and leak tests.
Thus, a unique electric car is able to protect the lives and health of passengers from unforeseen circumstances, and the environment from harmful CO2 emissions.
