Hyperion XP-1 - hydrogen hypercar with a range of 1600 km and acceleration to 100 km/h in 2.2 seconds
Major car brands have been trying to solve the problem of autonomous electric cars for many years. Hyperion has unveiled the new XP-1 supercar. The new model has a range of 1,600 kilometers and is able to accelerate to 100 km/h in just 2.2 seconds, with a top speed of 355 km/h.
The new Hyperion XP-1 supercar is not only designed with futuristic styling but also demonstrates the superiority of new technologies over the traditional approach to the automotive industry. Instead of a battery, it uses hydrogen fuel cells, which can be replaced in five minutes at a specialized gas station. The declared cruising range is over 1600 kilometers.
The manufacturer claims that the development of the car went on for a long 10 years. During this time, more than 200 engineers and researchers have worked on it, which is embodied in a new concept that solves many problems of modern electric cars. In addition to excellent autonomy, the XP-1 received impressive dynamic performance. So, with the help of highly efficient permanent magnet electric motors, a three-speed gearbox, and four-wheel drive, it can accelerate to 100 km/h in just 2.2 seconds. The declared maximum speed is 355 km/h.
The XP-1 features a carbon fiber/titanium composite monocoque and a double-wishbone adjustable independent suspension made of ultra-light aerospace aluminum alloy. The ride height is hydraulically controlled. The total curb weight of the car will be 1,032 kilograms. Production in the United States will start in 2020. The price is still unknown.
