PARIS, Feb. 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Famed racing driver Olivier Lombard has confirmed the arrival in June 2021, of Hopium Māchina's prototype, the first high-end zero-emission hydrogen powered sedan. The French manufacturer Hopium listed on the Paris Stock Exchange at the end of last year, and aims to become the world leader in hydrogen mobility with its vehicle hitting the roads by 2025. To achieve this industrial feat, Olivier Lombard, CEO and founder of Hopium, has surrounded himself with a team of experts, including car designer Félix Godard, previously at Porsche, Tesla or more recently Lucid Motors, who signs the sleek design and aerodynamic lines of Hopium Māchina; and Loïc Bouillo, Programs Director (former-PSA and Safran), in charge of orchestrating the development of the vehicle and its technological platform. This unique platform, unveiled late January, sets the standards for a next generation of hydrogen cars.
