A hydrogen truck with proven performance

The H2 Racing Truck, the most powerful 100% hydrogen and electric racing truck ever built, had a hugely successful demonstration at the 2022 Dakar Rally. It raced from the Red Sea, to Jeddah, through the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia passing through Hail, Al Artawiyah, Al Qaisumah, Riyadh, Al Dawadimi, Wadi Ad Dawasir, Bisha and returning in the final sprint of the race to Jeddah, where it all started. The H2 Racing Truck team consisted of a crew driven by a Dakar winner, driver Philippe Jacquot, and included Christophe GAUSSIN, CEO of GAUSSIN, as race team manager. This class 8 heavyweight was entered in the experimental category of the Dakar 2022 new clean energies. It was designed for extreme environments and aimed to demonstrate the performance and reliability of the hydrogen-electric motorization developed by GAUSSIN.

The H2 Racing Truck is a showcase of the latest GAUSSIN innovations. Unlike the solutions currently available on the market, the implementation of the hydrogen system has been developed on the basis of an ultra-light chassis, designed around the hydrogen and electric traction chain and based on the modular skateboard launched last April. by GAUSSIN (see April 27, press release 2021). It is the precursor of the new range of 100% hydrogen and electric road trucks from GAUSSIN, designed by PININFARINA, which will be marketed this year and of which it is the first model. If obtaining the registration of the truck to run on European roads was a first success, the successful course of the H2 Racing Truck ® in the Dakar Rally is an undeniable asset in attracting new partners and customers to the market. Winning new license agreements is one of GAUSSIN’s stated objectives in the context of its participation in the Dakar, and several promising relationships were forged during the race.
