Iceni H2 Hydrogen Fuel Cell Sports Car is a design submission from Tom Johnson, an architectural designer by profession, but car lovers at heart. Witnessing the slow demise of internal combustion engine, he started to design a concept for a sports car that uses commercially available fuel cell technology.
Inspired by his grandfather who was part of the research team that built the world’s first fuel cell car back in the late 1960s, Tom believes, the time has come where fuel cell cars or fuel cell sports cars are something common on the road. With Toyota’s free release of most of its fuel cell patents to the world, and Shell rolling out up to 400 hydrogen filling stations across Germany.

The aesthetic design philosophy of Iceni H2 Hydrogen Fuel Cell Concept Sports Car is centered around purity – given the pollution-free nature of the drive train. It is simple in form with free from esoteric wings and vents that aren’t absolutely essential to its function. This compact car features carbon fiber central chassis/tub combined with tubular steel sub frames and crash resistant structures. The obvious main benefit of the fuel cell technology would be the ability to re-fuel the car in similar time scales to a gasoline or diesel car’s tank, which radically improves the freedom levels over electric cars.
