Ligier’s JS2 R H2 makes waves in Germany

JS2 R H2

Ligier Automotive took part in an event organised by Bosch Engineering on the fringes of the IAA Mobility in Munich last week. It was an opportunity to put the JS2 R H2 through its paces.

Every two years, Bosch Engineering organises the ‘Keep in Touch’ event. And this year, a few lucky guests were able to take a ride in the race car co-developed by Ligier Automotive and its German partner. This is the car that was presented last June as part of the hydrogen village at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Hydrogen Today conducted an interview (in French) with Richard Tur, the COO.

The JS2 R H2 took to the track on Audi’s private circuit in Ingolstadt (Southern Germany). Those who got on board were surprised because they couldn’t tell the difference between a petrol car and a hydrogen car,” he told us. The Ligier Automotive executive also said that the car had already been driven 3,000 km. It’s fair to say that the technology is living up to its promise.

Ligier’s JS2 R H2 is powered by a hydrogen engine with almost 600 bhp.

We’ll know a little bit more at the Le Mans Hydrogène event. Richard Tur is one of the speakers at the symposium, which takes place on 26 and 27 September, 2023.
