SEMA Exposes Some Of The Hype About Hydrogen Electric Hyperion HP-1 Hypercar
What would anyone say about an electric-motor powered, all-wheel drive mobility device that is able to receive a recharge in 3-5 minutes? Probably that one suspects they are being hyped!
Not hype … and this is only the beginning of the items of note that are the most interesting talking-point dynamics of the HP-1 Hypercar produced by Hyperion, Inc.. A company first founded in 2011 in Columbus, Ohio that now sports a California dreamin’ office located in Orange, California.

Beyond the easily manageable recharge downtimes, this beautiful, stunning, and soon to be available Hypercar also boasts additional “HYPES” like an acceleration from 0-60mph in 2.25 seconds, a top speed of 221 mph supplied through 2,038HP power-plant. This is only the beginning.
A most interesting element that is at the base of this first effort by Hyperion, Inc. is the XP-1 SURFBOARD.
Hyperion developed an all-in-one ‘surf-board’ platform that combines its high-power fuel cell engine module with a revolutionary hydrogen storage technology from NASA that stores more hydrogen in less space than ever before.
This variable-vehicle technology (VVT) chassis comes with multiple motor configurations and can be used for a wide-variety of vehicle architectures from passenger cars to commercial vehicles.
