Italian design house Pininfarina, in collaboration with Afro-European startup NAMX, has recently revealed a new hydrogen fuel cell-powered SUV powered by a removable fuel capsule system.

Dubbed as the HUV, it “promises to change the experience paradigm of clean mobility and make hydrogen fuel widely available.”

It is expected to enter development in 2023. Two versions will be offered when it goes on sale in late 2025 with a price range of between 65,000 and 95,000 euros depending on the options selected.

The HUV will be marketed in two different versions: an entry-level rear-wheel drive version with 300 hp for a regulated top speed of 200 km/h and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.5 seconds. Meanwhile, a four-wheel drive GTH version with 550 hp for a regulated top speed of 250 km/h and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds.

Our double ambition is to become a new reference in the world of zero-emission cars, and to constantly explore new territories to facilitate mobility of our consumers,” said Fauzi Annajah, Founder and President of NAMX.

“NAMX is a collective project built with the best industrial and technical partners in Europe and Africa.”

“Pininfarina is not only about pure design and style…it is also about innovation, user experience and bringing to life our vision of a sustainable future,” said Paolo Pininfarina, President of Pininfarina.

“The NAMX HUV is simply at the heart of our DNA: inventing the best driving experience to infinite mobility, with style.”
