Say hello to the Hopium Machina, the first hydrogen luxury sedan
The limousine will arrive in 2026
If the future seems to be on the side of electric cars, hydrogen vehicles will also have their card to play in a not so distant future. Still very expensive, this technology should already benefit heavy vehicles such as trucks and buses. Some cars could also receive this energy.
This will be the case for luxury cars. With a hydrogen powertrain, these vehicles will offer greater comfort of use than electric cars thanks to a greater range and necessarily much shorter charging times. The Hopium Machina claims to be the initiator of this new category.
Hopium is a young French car brand created by the racing driver Olivier Lombard. The first images show a dynamic sedan with a particularly racy and fluid style. The front end is characterized by its highly original headlights, which are also reminiscent of Lexus.
The profile has marked curves as well as a low roof line that visually reinforces the dynamic character of the car. On the technical side, the Machina offers a 500 PS motor and a range of 620 mi (1000 km). Nevertheless, you will have to be patient because production of the car will not start until 2026 in France.
