H2X Ute Could Give Us Another FCEV Pickup Truck Besides Nikola Badger
The company claims an appropriate Mad Max inspiration. But what is Pateo Kinetic?
When we first told you about H2X, we shared the company’s initial plans of putting Australia back into the car-producing countries map using FCEVs. We also showed sketches for four vehicles: a van, a minibus, a tractor, and an SUV called Snowy. But that was it; we needed to know more about the company. After we managed to talk to Peter Zienau – Chief Product And Powertrain Officer at H2X – a new sketch emerged. It shows an electric pickup truck.
We first saw it published by CarAdvice on June 15 and immediately asked Zienau about any plans for it. He still had not gotten back in touch with us when CarSales managed to talk to Brendan Norman – H2X CEO – about the pickup truck. H2X’s website refers to it as H2Ute/Pick Up. And it raises more questions to it than it answers. What is Pateo Kinetic, for example? We’ll get there in a bit.
According to the article, Norman credits the design inspiration to the “Mad Max” movies, something the production version will probably retain. Although the choice seems very fitting and with a lot of character, we wonder how energy efficient it will be.
