The top model's price is even scarier.
We're patiently waiting for the all-new Ford Ranger to arrive. The model that finally arrived in America after years of absence was already a little past its prime when it got here, so we've been eager to learn everything we can about the latest model. But while we're obsessing over what's coming next, a company in Australia has been working on giving the old Ranger hydrogen power. We reported on this last month, excited to learn more about this clever idea. It seems that this new machine, called the H2X Warrego, is being lapped up by buyers around the world, but that could slow down once they see the pricing.
Before we get to the cost of the vehicle, H2X says that it already has AUD $50 million (around $35.5 million) worth of orders in Australia and other markets, which works out to around 250 vehicles. Three models are available, with the base Warrego 66 starting at the equivalent of $138,800 with a choice of rear- or all-wheel drive. The mid-level 90 model starts at the equivalent of $171,800 while the top-tier 90 XR version costs a little less than $183,000 in our money. Each model comes with a 48-month powertrain warranty, and each model generates the same 258 lb-ft of torque, although different power figures and range estimates apply.
The base model has a 268-horsepower electric motor, a 66-kilowatt fuel cell, a 60-kW supercapacitor/battery pack, and a 13.6-pound hydrogen tank. This gives it a top speed of 68 mph and a range of 310 miles. Next up are the two 90-kW fuel cell trucks, each of which comes with a 295-hp electric motor, a 100-kW supercapacitor, and a top speed of 93 mph. The difference between the mid-range and top-spec models is that the latter gets a 20.5-lb hydrogen tank that boosts the range to an impressive 466 miles. All three models promise a payload of 2,204 lbs and a braked towing capacity of 5,510 lbs.
