  • We Might See a Hydrogen Powered Racecar by Audi at Le Mans

Audi might come up with a hydrogen-powered Le Mans race car in the future.

Le Mans is arriving in a few weeks and we have hopes of seeing a super race car form Audi this year as well. According to reports, Audi might come up with a hydrogen-powered race car at Le Mans. Audi has been working on its technology for the past many months and have been moving forward to the latest fuel technology that is going to be used in future cars.

Audi’s technical development head Stefan Knirsch said that they are looking forward to bring the new latest technology for future vehicles. When he was asked about a possible hydrogen-powered race car in the Le Mans 24 Hour race, he said that they might get something like that in the upcoming event.

However he also added that Audi will not like to bring something in front of the audience if the concept will not be feasible to go in production for future. As this kind of hydrogen-powered race car might not be really profitable for the company.

“If we wanted to demonstrate our capabilities that way we could do it,” Knirsch told AutoCar. “But the first thing is that we must be certain that it has a production future. We don’t like to show things that are not leading to a production reality, and at the moment the lack of infrastructure leaves that uncertain.”

Audi’s participation in Le Mans festival has always been in question for past many years. Last year’s VW’s sub company Porsche won at Le Mans 2015. If Le Mans will race hydrogen powered cars, then it will do so in the experimental category under the Garage 56 category.

The recent entries that entered in Le Mans under this 56 category included Nissan Deltawing concept which was presented in year 2012 and Nissan’s hybrid ZEOD RC which was introduced in year 2014. This year Green GT H2 became the car to run on the lap running on hydrogen as well. Any car that will get the title of first hydrogen powered car at Le Mans will get a lot of PR too.
