Setting Sights on Baja 1000 Endurance Race

US-based SCG has invented a one-of-a-kind hydrogen, high performance race car/pickup truck called the Hydrogen Boot.  In late 2022, the company hopes the Boot will become the first zero emissions vehicle to compete in the Baja 1000 endurance race.  Importantly, the company plans to turn this eye-popping, off-road hydrogen vehicle into a road legal pickup truck for consumers to drive, first in the US.  Estimated price is $100,000.

On Track with Zero Emissions

The moving force behind SCG (Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus) is ex-Hollywood movie producer/director/writer James Glickenhaus who is an avid car enthusiast and loves extreme racing. SCG creates exotic, high-performance race and road cars. The company calls the Boot a "cryogenic supercritical hydrogen fuel cell Baja 1000 race vehicle".  The standout feature is the huge hydrogen tank that fills the rear of the vehicle.  The hydrogen tank is protected by a metal tubing structure. The hydrogen is converted to electricity to power the electric powertrain.  Targeted range for the vehicle is over 600 miles. The tank and other hydrogen related technologies occupy so much space in the vehicle, there is room for only two seats.  

Hydrogen Future

SCG believes that the future of driving will be powered by hydrogen. They are considering manufacturing a plug-in play system that would convert any quad-cab pickup into a hydrogen powered vehicle. Boot was inspired by the SCG Boot, that was a winner in class at the Baja 1000 2019 race. The SCG Boot can be purchased for close to $250,000. The new Hydrogen Boot is equipped with all-terrain tires, LED headlights and LED light bar on the roof, a spare tire in the front of the vehicle and more.  Boot is the company's precursor for a hydrogen pickup truck designed for the driving public. SCG has a very innovative and green take on the future of driving.
