American firm Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus has previewed a hydrogen fuel cell (FCEV) pick up concept, which the manufacturer says will target 1000 kilometres of range.

The Glickenhaus Zero Emission Hydrogen Fuel Cell Boot Pickup concept is based on the Baja Boot, presented by the firm back in February this year.

Glickenhaus described the car as having a “quick, low cost, easily available refueling solution,” and that it “can be used as a generator.” The firm is aiming to build a prototype later this year.

It has also been designed with flared wheel arches and the rear windows have been removed, as two of the car’s three hydrogen tanks will be positioned just behind the driver and passenger seats.

If completed, the concept will likely compete in the Baja 1000, similar to the Baja Boot, which beat Ford’s Bronco racer by 320 kilometres last year.

The firm, run by former film director James Glickenhaus, is already actively producing supercars, including the road-legal, 485kW SCG 004S. It debuted at Goodwood Festival of Speed earlier this year as, essentially, a road-going version of the the firm’s outlandish Le Mans racer.
