Dutch students unveil ‘most efficient’ hydrogen car in the world

A student team from TU Delft in the Netherlands at the beginning of May revealed what could be the most efficient hydrogen car in the world.

The vehicle, named ERXII, is expected to cover more than 2,000 km on just 1 kg of hydrogen fuel – equivalent to the distance between Amsterdam and Kiev.

This claim will be tested in June at Shell’s Eco-Marathon event in France. Eco-Runner will compete with student teams from all over Europe to break the world record for the longest distance driven on hydrogen without refueling.

This year the number to beat is 2,056 km, driven by a Renault Zoe on methanol fuel cell in 2022.
