The Volkswagen Amarok is a robust pickup truck that the photographers of the Dakar Press Team already use for many years in the DAKAR rally. For the Le Dakar 2024, they will fulfil the rally with our prototype Amarok FCEV.
For the conversion from a Diesel to al full FCEV drive system, we basically remove all diesel related parts. An electric engine will do the job, together with a small battery pack, combined with fuel cell technology. We also rewrote the software of the Amarok to be compatible with these new techniques and motor drive
