BMW put on a hydrogen show at Goodwood

BMW Goodwood

The German manufacturer BMW made the trip to Goodwood, the famous Festival of Speed in England. It presented its ix5 Hydrogen SUV, as well as an experimental racing car.

It wasn’t just NAMX and Ineos at Goodwood, BMW was also there. The Bavarian brand, which is continuing its marathon tour, took the opportunity to present the iX5 Hydrogen (read our article). But besides this pre-production SUV, it also brought along the H2R (Hydrogen Racing Car). This prototype competition car, powered by a hydrogen (stored in liquid form) and petrol engine, was first unveiled in 2004. The car is one of 17 works in the BMW Art Car series.

Following one another, with the H2R in the lead followed by the iX5 Hydrogen, both vehicles took the route of a hill climb. It was an opportunity to bridge the gap between BMW’s past and future (and in the brand’s case, the transition between the combustion engine and the fuel cell).
