French pilot Olivier Lombard announces the birth of Hopium and launches the first top-of-the-range model with hydrogen propulsion.
A true technological feat, the ”Hopium Māchina”, will offer, in addition to a carbon neutral balance sheet, an exceptional range of more than 1000 km and a record recharge time of only 3 minutes. With a power output of over 500 hp, it will combine performance, hyper connectivity, safety and ergonomics with a comfortable and sporty interior and a unique design.
The design features sleek, aerodynamic lines, designed to offer a long range.
At the front, the ascending fuselage optimises the cooling of the fuel cell.
The light signature is reminiscent of the stratification of a Hydrogen molecule and the waves on the surface of the water.
A first prototype of the ”Hopium Māchina” will be unveiled by June 2021 and mass production will begin by 2026.
Hopium will build its “machines” in France, its first market before being deployed in Europe, China, South Korea, Japan and the United States.
A high-tech manufacturer, Hopium’s ambition is to become the world’s leading brand in hydrogen mobility, with the goal of achieving a turnover of 1 billion euros by 2030.
