The development and adoption of electric vehicles get most of the attention, but hydrogen fuel cell technology is also a viable alternative fuel source. The International Council on Clean Transportation recently found that both electric vehicles and hydrogen-powered vehicles are necessary to meet key Paris Agreement goals, and firms are continuing to develop the technology. With a range of 248 miles, Mob-ion's TGT electric-hydrogen scooter turned all that theory into practice in July, 2021.

To showcase the true power of hydrogen, France's H2 Motronics and Tecmas Racing Team have teamed up to develop the H2 Koncept (H2K) racing motorcycle. Emmanuel Esnault became the CEO of H2 Motronics' parent company Texys Group in 2019 when the project began. Esnault spent eight years at Renault Sports Technologies, two years with McLaren Applied Technologies, and five seasons with McLaren's F1 team.


Texys Group President Philippe Leuwers explained that the company was focused on all-electric vehicles, especially for motorcycles. "From there, the company met representatives from the Vehicle of the Future Pole (PVF). We discussed the yields of hydrogen."

H2 Motronics partnered with Tecmas CEO Michel Augizeau to maximize the performance of the new hydrogen-powered bike. A race chassis, a fuel cell, a compressor, a humidifier, and control units were all developed together by the team. Thanks to the lightweight construction, the H2K will weight much less than the 200-kg (440-pound) MotoE race rigs while achieving Moto3 performance levels. With a kilogram of hydrogen on board, the H2K is estimated to have a range of 44 kilometers (27.3 miles), or 11 laps around Spain's Riccardo Tormo Circuit.

Following the digital modeling phase, automotive designer Stéphane Valdant has continued to prepare the H2K prototype for its Spring 2022 unveiling. Texys Group plans to use the hydrogen engine for two-wheeled urban vehicles, light recreational vehicles, and even marine applications if the race bike proves successful.
