You know the world is coming into electric vehicles when there’s a company out there whose name spells it out for everyone. GreenGT has been around for a few years bringing us electric vehicles such as the 2009 GreenGT Sprint, the 2010 Citroën Servile, and the 2011 GreenGT 300. Its last project was the Green GT Electric Race Car Concept and we now hear that it has been whipped into a production version and invited to compete as an experimental car at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2012.
The GreenGT LMPH2 will incorporate all of the safety features found in the company’s previous models and will be built on an LMP chassis. It will be fueled by 12 kg of hydrogen in 700 bar high-pressure tanks which are on board the vehicle. This hydrogen will be fed into a fuel cell, and when combined with oxygen, will produce electricity to run the racer. The only emissions escaping it will be steam so the LMPH2 will be fully carbon neutral.
GreenGT will be presenting the first LMPH2 in the fall of 2011 to undergo testing before the big year ahead of them. This first model will feature a 100kW (134 HP) fuel cell that will then be followed with a 300kW (402 HP) fuel cell.
Hit the jump to watch veteran driver, Christian Pescatori, take a couple of laps in the GreenGT prototype. Pescatori will be driving the GreenGT racer throughout its developmental stages.
