    Australian hydrogen fuel-cell carmaker H2X will launch its Warrego ute on the Gold Coast in November 2021.

    Reservations for commercial and private buyers are open now, with deliveries expected in April 2022.

    Three trims will be available, with prices starting at $189,000 before on-road costs for the Warrego 66, extending to $250,000 for the Warrego 90 XR.

    There will be an option of either two- or four-wheel drive.

    Based on the Ford Ranger T6 platform, the Warrego ute uses a hydrogen fuel-cell electric (FCEV) powertrain replacing the traditional internal-combustion engine (ICE).

    66kW or 90kW hydrogen fuel-cell options power either a 200kW or 220kW electric motor, depending on trim level.

    It also has a super-capacitor capable of producing between 60kW and 100kW, depending again on trim level, to provide auxiliary power for vehicle start-up, quicker acceleration, and accessories when stationary according to H2X.

    The supercapacitor is similar to one used in the Lamborghini Sian Roadster, as it provides a faster-acting setup than nickel-metal hydride or lithium-ion battery packs alone.

    Top speed of the base 66 model is limited to 110km/h, with the 90 and 90 XR models limited at 150km/h.

    H2X claims the Warrego will be able to travel 500km with a 6.2kg hydrogen tank, and 750km with a 9.3kg hydrogen tank.

    Refuelling the hydrogen tank is expected to take between three and five minutes.

    All Warregos will be able to carry 1000kg in their tray and be able to tow 2500kg.

    Syd Melb is more than a days drive... well these days.
    So the EV can be driven all day, over night recharge and repeat... at least that should be what they are aiming at .. Exectptions ... Driving at 130 kmh all day could be pushing things range wise.

    Thanks Cruz, I must admit it's a lot nicer looking than the Ioniq 5. I still don't think it matches the performance / value equation of the Tesla 3 though.

    A certain brand with a 100kwh battery is only 100km shy. A cup of coffee at a supercharger and you’re there.

    That website looks suspiciously like the one I was scammed through a month or so ago. Lucky I use Paypal, who refunded me. Actually I reckon it's the same one with a different (edited, check out their About Us page and you'll see the edit) name and new web address.

    https://peakfrontierco.com

    Just went to see if that web address was still active and nope.

    You need a bit more practice with those English accents Troy, maybe too much time hanging around with our Nordic neighbours - Department of HOUSINGE. :lol2

    I bet they'll start too soon.
