The American company SCG has made an announcement of its future car – a pickup truck on hydrogen fuel cells.
SCG first revealed the idea for a hydrogen-powered version of the Baja Boot in February. The concept has since been redesigned into what the company calls a zero-emission, hydrogen fuel cell pickup truck.
In the single image posted, the pickup can be seen to have a front fascia with a design similar to that of the Baja Boot concept, complete with a winch, skid plate, steel bumper, and four headlights. In addition, it was equipped with a large LED strip on the roof, and black rims were shod with off-road tires.
From the side, flared wheel arches, plugs that take the place of the rear side windows, attract attention, since the hydrogen cylinders will be stored behind the driver. Glickenhaus says its goal is to give the driver a pickup range of up to 960 km.
One of the most pressing questions about a pickup truck has to do with its drivetrain. While Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus does most of its work in-house, developing its own hydrogen powertrain is a daunting task and it looks like the company will be partnering with someone more experienced in this area.
