So – When is Hydrogen Powered – Not an EV?
Arrington Hydrogen CEO, Mike Copeland, debuted his third Hydrogen Powered proof of-concept engine at SEMA 2023 with a 540cu Big Block Chevrolet tuned to put out 1000+ horsepower, in a Monster Truck. This is Copeland’s third Hydrogen powered internal combustion vehicle, and helps further the future of Hydrogen Powered ICEs. Arrington Hydrogen develops fuel delivery systems for internal combustion engines that allow hydrogen to replace gasoline and thereby enable a zero carbon emissions, internal combustion solution. Mike uses Total Seal AP rings to help achieve his zero emissions and maximum power.
This truck sounds and drives exactly like a conventional gasoline powered hot rod but with zero C02 emissions!
Founder Mike Copeland has been innovating horsepower and vehicle dynamics for more than three decades. As the industry moves toward emissions reduction and carbon footprint concerns, Copeland’s attention to gasoline-based engine development naturally drifted towards the future of internal combustion for a gasoline-reduced economy. Hydrogen was an obvious choice, although no one had succeeded in bringing to market a commercial-ready product. While nearing retirement number three, Copeland set out to prove the viability Hydrogen as an emissions reduction alternative to electric vehicles and launched his first proof of concept, the ZERO truck, at SEMA 2021. Since 2021, Copeland has built concept vehicles and engines for commercial applications and looks forward to full production ramping up by the year 2025, if not sooner.
