At this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans, a hydrogen fuel cell car will make the starting grid. The GreenGT H2 sports racer aims to showcase the viability of fuel cell technology in the upper echelons of motorsport and could pave the way for others in the near future. The H2 sports twin electric motors that draw energy from a single fuel cell and enable it to generate 540 horsepower. As a result, it ranks as one of the most powerful fuel cell vehicles constructed to date.



Fuel cell technology, despite facing hurdles toward widespread acceptance, namely infrastructure challenges, has been actively pursued by several automakers, notably Mercedes-Benz and Honda, though mostly, it’s being aimed at passenger car and commercial vehicle use. Until now, alternative fuel in motorsports has largely been confined to clean diesel, hybrid and EVs.



Besides competing at LeMans, GreenGT will be showcasing the H2 at the FIA World Endurance Championship race that takes place at Silverstone, UK, in August.
