Extreme E produces the energy used for racing through hydrogen, now, that work will pass into the hands of ENOWA, powered by this green fuel, which is seen as one of the cleanest and most promising for the future to curb the effects of climate change, providing environmentally friendly solutions.
Through this partnership, the 100% electric SUV category hopes to be 100% sustainable, in addition to showing all the benefits that can be obtained from hydrogen, thus giving prominence to this element, encouraging more and more companies or institutions are encouraged to adopt its use.
