Alset Global‘s unique Hybrid Hydrogen will be on display in Aston Martin‘s Rapide S car at the 41st ADAC 24 Hours of Nurburgring.
The system comprises a hydrogen fuel supply, tank and proprietary engine management system, with the strength of the technology related to the flexibility of controlling the combustion process dependant on the driving situation.
Drivers can choose between pure hydrogen, gasoline or a blend of both, ensuring optimum power, acceleration and CO2 reduction. The combustion control in a powerful and dynamic propulsion system that delivers sports car performance with the carbon footprint of a supermini.
Aston Martin and Alset Global aim to show that a zero CO2 emissions lap of the Nordschleife is possible with virtually only water coming from the exhaust pipe whilst in pure hydrogen mode.
“With our Hybrid Hydrogen system we are providing a practical way to transition to the hydrogen economy,” said CEO of Alset Global, Jose Ignacio Galindo. “We are providing a unique, clean solution for the premium and performance segment and demonstrating that going green does not require sacrificing emotions. Our system offers the highest power density of all built and existing hydrogen cars and, because it is compatible with nearly all current internal combustion engines, it is the most affordable and simplest to implement.”
The system is simple enough that only minimal changes are needed to fit it to conventional engines, meaning hydrogen mobility could be on the streets sooner than expected.
