Hyundai has delivered the largest ever fleet of ix35 hydrogen fuel cell crossover SUVs to Europe, and also takes leadership in the Hydrogen fuel cell vehicle market.
The limited production Hyundai ix35 combines combines a 100 kilowatt electric motor with a 100 kilowatt proton-exchange fuel cell stack, 0.95 kWh lithium-polymer traction battery, and a 5.63 kg hydrogen fuel cell tank capable of storing 140 litres of compressed hydrogen.
The National Economic Development Council (NEDC) range test in Europe shows that the ix35 can travel 600 km on a full tank of compressed hydrogen.
The 50 fuel cell vehicles have been ordered by both, corporate as well as private customers, to make use of the incentives provided by Europe for the purchase of fuel cell vehicles. With the delivery of 250 ix35s, Hyundai has now delivered 250 hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, much more than any other manufacturers combined.
With demands on the rise, Hyundai claim that it will further go up, as more hydrogen filling stations have been commissioned.
