What is the future of supercars? Well, if we had anything to say about them, we’d expect them to look like the new Hydrogen Matador MH2 Supercar. This innovative new supercar concept is currently being showcased at the Slovakian Expo Pavilion in Dubai where audiences can see this innovative new car first-hand. The Matador MH2 is Slovakia’s first Hydrogen powered car, which represents a major step forward in car design.
In today’s changing world of automotive power generation, car companies are faced with three choices. First, they can stick to traditional internal combustion vehicles to celebrate the end of the era, they can turn to electrification, or they can take on the unique world of hydrogen-powered cars. Sure, hybrids and new EVs get most of the headlines, but can hydrogen-powered cars really be our future?
The Matador Group certainly thinks so, and their sensational MH2 concept car is a fantastic showcase of the brand’s technical expertise and commitment to this alternative fuel source. The Matador MH2 is powered by a unique hydrogen propulsion system developed by Slovak University TUKE. The Matador claims 600 horsepower (450 Kilowatts) a top speed of 155mph (250 km/h), and a 0 to 60mph time of just 3.9 seconds, all without emissions.
This impressive green drivetrain delivers competitive performance while providing customers with a zero-emission vehicle that doesn’t rely on charging networks like EVs. In fact, with the right infrastructure, Matador MH2 owners can fill their tanks with hydrogen as quickly as the gas stops in an internal combustion vehicle. This innovative fuel source solves many of the problems associated with EVs and fossil fuel powered vehicles.
The Matador Group started life in 1905 as one of the world’s first automotive tire suppliers. Matador focused on tire production and development until 2007 when it divested from its tire division in a joint venture with Continental. With the freed capital, Matador has grown to become one of the largest Tier 1 auto parts suppliers in Europe thanks to a joint venture with Auffer Design. Today the Matador Group is channeling all of its experience into a vision of the future with the MH2 concept, which is the start of something very special for this Slovakia-based organization.
