► BAC Mono teams up with Viritech
► For a hydrogen powered Mono
► A track-focused hydrogen car?!
BAC is going to create a hydrogen-powered version of its track-focused Mono car. Designed at first to be a proof-of-concept for now, the hydrogen-powered Mono will be the culmination of partnership with Viritech, a ‘cleantech’ company already involved in H2 solutions for aerospace, marine and power.
How a hydrogen car works
It’s not the first eco-friendly move from BAC, either: The brand’s use of graphene and niobium brings weight-savings but also efficiency and indirectly, less emissions. BAC also believes its Mono FCEV will help the adoption of hydrogen in sports cars.
Will it be a tank?
The biggest challenge for BAC will be making a hydrogen system that’s both efficient, light and powerful enough to preserve the driving dynamics of the scalpel-like ICE-powered Mono. Hydrogen cars require a substantial amount of tech to work, and fitting that in a Mono’s footprint.
‘Technology has always been at the forefront of our development, and we remain committed to exploring new automotive innovations within all that we do,’ said Neill Briggs, BAC’s co-founder and director of product development.
‘Alternative fuels, along with lightweight construction methods, reduces vehicle emissions considerably without compromising driver engagement, something we are committed to preserving at BAC.’
