Pininfarina designed the sophisticated NAMX HUV featured with removable hydrogen capsules

~Hydrogen-Cells~ As We all have knew, if the gait from Pininfarina S.p.A. or Pininfarina, the famous Italian automotive design house is no longer in doubt. The long journey of the company founded by Battista 'Pinin' Farina in 1930 has been legendary by working on many projects commissioned by various renowned car brands in the world such as Ferrari, Maserati, Cadillac, Nash, Peugeot, Jaguar, Volvo, Alfa Romeo, MG, Cisitalia, Lancia, and many more.

It should be noted that of the many brands that have worked with the Italian design house, it turn out not all of them are well-known brands, there are also new brands that have not been known to the public before. And one example is the new French automotive brand of NAMX, and known to be owned by Paris-based automotive startup was founded by Thomas de Lussac, together with Faouzi Annajah.

Well, although the electric car market is not as hot as the electric-powered car market, it turns out that the hydrogen fuel-cell car market is also starting to get crowded, so the new French brand is interested in trying its luck here, by introducing a hydrogen-powered vehicle called NAMX HUV (Hydrogen Utility Vehicles) which is also the result of the design collaboration between those French startup and Pininfarina.

As quoted from the Pininfarina.it, the collaboration-result vehicle carries an SUV style and has an aggressive appearance. How not, the environmentally friendly SUV looks quite striking with a super large pentagon front grille. Moreover, Pininfarina gives the grille's outline clearly visible through the crossed LED strip implementation at the front.

It is also clearly seen the 'Italian' trait of Pininfarina and the ambition to subvert the paradigms of the future green mobility. It could be said, that the NAMX HUV (Hydrogen Utility Vehicle) has a strong line and looks to the future of the automotive industry thanks to its patented hydrogen fuel-cells system, consisting of one fixed tank and six removable capsules, which guarantees the car driving over a total distance of 800 kilometers.

Meanwhile, when it viewed from the side, the car looks so big with an 'X' shape element meets in the center line of the door. Not to forget the bottom of the car and the fenders are also equipped with black plastic cladding and bumpers strengthened the SUV's feels.

Perhaps the most interesting part of the car is at the rear. As You can see, there're many design elements that are enough to make the bottom crowded and the 'X' shape design at first glance reminiscent to similar one attached on the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 and Terzo Millennio Concept.

This car also has another interesting parts just above the rear bumper. It can be seen clearly that NAMX intentionally exposed 6 horizontally lined hydrogen capsules. That's not only for aesthetics, these six fuel-cells are indeed a kind of hydrogen plug-n-play tanks that can be removed and replaced, or even filled easily if needed.

NAMX did intentionally make their hydrogen technology a major attraction of the car, and reportedly has been patented. As mentioned above, this fuel-cells technology consisting a large fixed hydrogen tank attached on the car coupled with 6 small, easily removable capsules, that's makes the car's recharging process as easy as swapping batteries on an electric-powered scooter. But that's a big challenge for Pininfarina, due to NAMX desires the presence of those 6 removable capsules should be integrated into the overall design of the car.

Unfortunately, NAMX did not reveal the capacity of the hydrogen tank yet.😥 But the French auto startup said that the HUV's drivetrain would produced power of 224 kW or 296 horsepower to drive the rear wheels and made it has an acceleration capability from still to 100 kph in 6.5 seconds and reached a top speed of 200 kph.

But for those of you who want a higher performance number, it turns out that NAMX has also prepared a more powerful version called GTH which will have a powerful drivetrain almost double than the standard version of 410 kw or 542 horsepower. Not only that, the configuration also turned into the All-Wheels Drive (AWD) system with acceleration performances to only 4.5 seconds and the top speed increased to 250 kph.
As mentioned earlier this fuel cell technology can guarantee the car driving range as far as 800 km with all its fuel-cells full. Unfortunately the French startup not explained how much capacity can be filled by the six removable capsules.😯 

Furthermore, NAMX will launching the HUV for the first time at the 2022 Paris Motor Show (Mondial de l'automobile) and targeting to be able send into the market soon in 2025 with the price tags ranging from € 65,000 or around Rp.990 million to the most expensive ones reaches € 95,000 or around Rp1.44 billion. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | PININFARINA | NAMX.TECH | BREAKINGLATEST.NEWS | HYDROGEN-CENTRAL | AUTODAILY | H2.LIVE ]

The first Japanese EV after WW2

~First ONE~ In 1947, when the Nissan Tama EV (electric vehicle) was born as a result of the Allied forces seek to limit the supply of fuel to the Rising Sun country as a consequence of the country that lost the war.
1947 Nissan Tama was the Nissan Leaf  ancestor and also known as the first Japanese electric vehicles. (Picture from: OtoBlitz)
The first Nissan electric car was a two-door car with the lead-acid battery powered and developed in post-war by the engineers of the Tachikawa Airplane Company, one of Japanese aircraft company. The company eventually changed its name to Tokyo Electric Motorcar Co.

Later the company changed again to Prince Motor Company and then joined by Nissan Motor Company, which then makes the Tama electric car, although not very strong, but actually become part of the heritage of Nissan electric vehicles.
 
When testing by Japan's Ministry of transportation, the Tama EV managed to travel as far as 96.3 km for a single charge with a maximum speed of 35.4 kph by using the electric motor that has a voltage of 36 volts. It was used as a taxi and in similar roles until 1950.
One of which was inherited by Nissan Tama is the front opening hood like a crocodile's mouth which are not common at the time, but now embraced by almost all types of cars in the world. *** [EKA [11022015] | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | NISSAN ]

Might be the truck in the future look like this

~FUTURE Off-Roader~ Today it seems, the automotive world and automakers are in high spirits to build some of the most exciting vehicles in decades. And in the midst of the rapid development of electric powertrain and battery technology, more and more people are interested in taking part and entering the competitive field.
Meet the Thundertruck, an all-electric off-road concept that can be configured in a number of different ways - even with an extra component that adds a bigger battery and more wheels! (Picture from: Konfrontasi)
Not only car manufacturers, anyone who has an interest in the automotive world seems to want to be able to make electric cars. One example is what a creative advertising agency called Wolfgang LA did. Recently the firm reported to have launched an electric off-roader with a futuristic design called the Thundertruck, which is said also to be in mass production soon. 

As quoted of CarScoops, this Thundertruck is a side project of co-founders Wolfgang LA, namely Colin Jeffery and Mike Geiger and has been ongoing for the past two years with the assistance of many automotive experts as well as engineers, designers, and sculptors. 
There’s more than a few hints of Tesla’s Cybertruck in its design, but the Thundertruck packs more than a few of its own very clever touches. (Picture from: BlackXperience)
And this Wolfgang LA's unique electric-powered truck is said to focus on some kind of innovative creation and cutting-edge design, where through this new design they want to show a unique alternative view of today' rapidly evolving EV truck revolution with features never seen before attached on the such vehicles.
The Thundertruck says the beast has a theoretical range of 644 kilometres from its 180kWh battery pack, with a combined power and torque output from its dual electric motors of 590kW and 1085Nm. (Picture from: SlashGear)
Indeed, by providing unrestricted freedom to express ideas, allowing designers to let their minds run wild and think of interesting ideas that might be applied to the proposed vehicle. The first thing that catches the eye of the Thundertruck's design is its shape, this is interesting because it will make the Tesla Cybertruck looks ordinary and nothing.
There're the “Solar Awning” that fits into a pair of storage pods on the roof and folds out either side of the truck when it is stationary to not only provide shade, but also top up the Thundertruck’s batteries. (Picture from: OtoBandung)
How not, on this Thundertruck figure there are almost no front or rear overhangs and also no traditional hood with a windshield that extends right into the front of the truck. Elsewhere, the Thundertruck has been envisioned with LED headlights, coupled with the embedding of a set of wheels wrapped in off-road tread tires.
The ‘Solar Awning’ provides shade and a handy top-up charge for the batteries and additional tents. (Picture from: OtoBandung)
Other key design highlights of the vehicle are the unique positioning of the doors, the range extender in the form of additional set of wheels that directly connects to the back of the vehicle. The kind of a unique feature adds a range of 160 miles (257 km) for a total range of 560 miles (900 km) and also converts the Thundertruck into a 6x6 vehicle with better off-road capabilities.

Another unique features are the two large solar panel awnings that help to charge the Thundertruck during its long touring journey. Besides that, it can also function as additional tents so that it can make the camping atmosphere comfortable and easy with the additional shade of the tents. As quoted of STuff, the firm says their beast has a theoretical range of 644 kilometres from its 180kWh battery pack, with a combined power and torque output from its dual electric motors of 590kW and 1085Nm.
The Thundertruck’s smartest trick is the detachable range extender unit that not only adds more range and grunt, but also two more wheels. (Picture from: BlackXperience)
Furthermore by experimenting with new car features on this eye-catching design at least shows us what the future of trucks might look like. As You can be seen the Thundertruck takes the concept of an all-terrain EV truck to a new level with exciting concepts executed into a beautiful 3D-rendered image, making it as one-of-a-kind vehicle that's described of an off-roader in the future.

It could be said that the Thundertruck is not only a unique handy electric powered truck, also could be the perfect demonstration of how the future truck can give its users something more thanks to its increadible EV construction.
Wolfgang LA said that they have spoken to several technology companies, potential production partners and investors about the possibility to bring their Thundertruck project into a production version, which is estimated to cost around $70,000 each.👀

It will be interesting if the Thundertruck can be realized later, of course the Tesla Cybertruck not alone anymore under its uniqueness and oddity, soon it would be get a commensurate rival, so we'll just have to wait.🤗 *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | WOLFGANG LA | THUNDERTRUCK | STUFF.CO.NZ | CARSCOOPS | ROBBREPORT | SLASHGEAR ]
