Olivier LOMBARD (CEO of HOPIUM) and Arnaud DESRENTES (CEO of E-MERSIV) share common ambitions which have led to a promising collaboration.

According to Olivier LOMBARD, “the collaboration with the French company E-MERSIV is a strategic solution which seriously strengthens the solidity of the project and improves the performance of the premium car we will produce”.

Arnaud DESRENTES is also convinced: “We are delighted to work alongside the French company HOPIUM on its premium hydrogen vehicle. This collaboration reinforces the strength of the French automotive industry and our ambitions to reduce CO2 emissions.”


Hopium is the first French manufacturer of high-end hydrogen-powered vehicles and a key player in the field of zero emission mobility. Established in 2019, Hopium was founded by racing driver Olivier Lombard, winner of the 2011 edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans competition and the most experienced hydrogen racer in the world.

The race acted as an open-air laboratory which made it possible for Olivier Lombard and his team to reflect on new mobility solutions to meet contemporary environmental challenges.

Bringing together leading partners and experts in the sectors of fuel cells, automotive engineering, and advanced technologies, Hopium aims to restore the dialogue between mankind, nature,
and technology, in a search for a perfect balance.

We are more than ever ready to help Hopium in developing a state-of-the-art submerged battery pack and sustain our ambitions to reduce CO2 emissions.
