Lexus built the hydrogen burning UTV concept for some reason

Of all the concepts we expected of Lexus, this was definitely not one of them.

You see, I’m chasing you here: Lexus We have built the concept of UTV powered by hydrogen. I know, I know, it’s weird and meaningless, and I promise that the more I explain it, the more weird it will be.

The Lexus ROV concept (ROV stands for recreational off-highway vehicle) was announced Thursday, and Lexus’ European arms call it a “luxury lifestyle experience for drivers who want to discover a stylish wilderness.” increase. It’s arguable, but what’s really cool is that its little 1.0-liter engine burns hydrogen.

That’s right Burn hydrogen.It’s not Fuel cell vehicleIt’s a combustion engine similar to what Toyota I’ve been playing with that Super Taikyu Corolla Sport and GR Yaris Model.. Why does Lexus choose this strange powertrain for the first side-by-side? Burning speed, friends. Hydrogen burns much faster than gasoline. According to Lexus, the responsiveness of small engines will improve.

OK, there is a hydrogen combustion engine. It is paired with what looks like a sequential manual transmission. I’m very skeptical that Lexus built this bad buggy from scratch, so I’ll keep track of it. It seems that there is a high possibility that Yamaha and Polaris started side by side and went out to the city with the engine and styling.

Lexus doesn’t place much emphasis on performance or mechanical specifications, so its functionality needs to be exaggerated. This is certainly excellent. What Lexus is talking about is the styling and the fact that this concept is intended to show that the reputation for Lexus build quality is applicable to almost everything. The ROV’s styling gets some clues from the brand’s road cars, such as the swoosh-like front light and the shape of the front-end spindle grille.

Does this whole exercise really make sense? No. Want to get rid of hell in a spaghetti western style Spanish desert-like environment? You bet your ass I do, so I’ll wait on the phone until Lexus calls me.

I contacted Lexus for comment and explanation, but didn’t get a response in time for the release.
