For the first time to make a record in the famous race, the Nissan’s X-Trail FCV finished the 20.8km course in 11.58 minutes. The X-Trail Fuel Cell Vehicle, the fastest car of its type, gets power by own produced electricity onboard, in a hydrogen fuel cell stack. The car can reach 150km/h and has a range of 500 km, the maximum output being 120PS and a torque of 280Nm.
“I was very surprised at just how comfortable it is to drive a fuel cell car. You get in, turn the key and off you go, just like with a normal car. Although some of the uphill sections were challenging, the speed was still very impressive.” said Frank Eickholt, member of the Nissan 24 Hours Nürburgring race team.
