2012 GreenGT LMPH2

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 Citro├źn 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.

Competition wise, this been highly made for racing. Very competitive and totally aggressive on its style and design. Definitely made with highly power set up engine system.

I think we already have this kind of competition that is why it is called a racing prototype. If you can’t get the reason why automakers pursuing this kind of car, it is because of fuel economy it offers, and it can minimize the pollution in the air.

I think they should have a competition for this class of cars. That one would certainly help in speeding up their development, since manufacturers will be encouraged more.

Going green is perfect for a car. I think that’s one of the main reason why people love those Electric Race Car because it does not affect on them. But U think the price is just not affordable for averybody.

Well, considering the rapid advancement of green racing cars nowadays, I think this one does stand a fair chance. Though I would really love to see this one in action just ot know if I am correct.

This one kinds look a bit like the KTM X-Bow, though it does have some rather good looking features of its own. But I am still a bit skeptical about the green aspect of this one.

Or maybe they have activated the diesel engine of this car to support it whenever it loses its power! I really don’t get why car manufacturer keeps on producing car like this.

hmm. Although I like the platform of this car still I don’t want its being an electric! This engine is unreliable and I bet later on the problem would be the charging the car.
