Growing demand for H2X ute a taste of the hydrogen future
Interest in H2X Global’s ground-breaking Warrego ute is growing with over 250 order-interests received from Australia and countries such as the Netherlands, Germany and Malaysia.
The article states:
"The vehicle, which will be officially launched early next year on the Gold Coast, features a 750km driving range courtesy of the company’s Hydrogen Fuel Cell Hybrid technology and will be built in Gippsland, Victoria."
While the volume of order inquiries exceeded the company's estimates, H2X Global's CEO Brendan Norman said he wasn't shocked given hydrogen's rising prominence as a future fuel.
“One of the first companies to buy the ute was green energy solutions and hardware provider, Veida. Its director Haim Ptasznik explained that with hydrogen offering parity with diesel on a kWh-to-kWh basis, the Warrego was the ‘go to’ vehicle that green energy pioneers and early adopters had been waiting for.”

Veida collaborated with clients to develop alternative, green energy solutions, and H2X enabled his firm to be the first to integrate hydrogen vehicles and powertrains into its solutions, according to Ptasznik.
The Warrego's growing popularity, which is the first of many hydrogen fuel cell vehicles being developed by H2X, is especially encouraging as the company prepares to list on a major stock exchange and expand into new markets in order to establish itself as a global premium hydrogen vehicle manufacturer.
The H2X Pick-Up Warrego will be one of our first vehicles launched to market. This highly versatile vehicle is aimed at complementing the existing and upcoming hydrogen projects around the world, working as a proof of concept for hydrogen vehicles and their multiple uses.
Because of its tough nature, the H2X Warrego can be used in construction sites, mining locations and many other extreme scenarios.
As stated in the article,
"The basic Warrego ute combines a 200kW motor, a 66kW hydrogen fuel cell and 60kW energy storage system to deliver a range of up to 750km on a mix of highway and city roads while offering quick refuelling times of between three to five minutes.
It is capable of carrying up to 1,000kg in the tray and towing up to 2,500kg and there are options such a larger 90kW hydrogen fuel cell and a bigger 100kW energy storage system to improve performance."
