The Dakar Rally 2022 in Saudi Arabia will be a little different next year, as it wants to be a green event by 2030, with participating organizers aiming for lower emissions engines.
According to motor1, the Gaussin team is working on a hydrogen-powered truck, with the hydrogen-powered race truck H2 becoming the first hydrogen-electric vehicle to compete in the event.
