09 Mar 2017 | International News : U.K.



Having established itself as a global leader for hydrogen transportation, Hyundai has reaffirmed its commitment to fuel cell vehicle development at the Geneva Motor Show 2017. The FE Fuel Cell Concept represents the next step for Hyundai Motor toward realising its ultimate ambition of creating a zero-emission Hydrogen Energy Society.

In 2013, the Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell (above) became the world's first mass-produced hydrogen-powered vehicle 
In early 2017 at the Davos World Economic Forum, Hyundai Motor Company joined the launch of the Hydrogen Council, a global initiative to promote the development and commercialisation of fuel cell cars as an alternative to fossil fuel vehicles.

This follows two decades at the forefront of hydrogen vehicle development, most recently with the ix35 Fuel Cell (Tucson Fuel Cell in some markets), which in 2013 became the world's first mass-produced hydrogen-powered vehicle, and is currently on sale in 17 countries around the world.

Mr. Woong Chul Yang, Vice Chairman of Hyundai Motor Company, said, "Hyundai Motor has a heritage of building innovative, fuel-efficient vehicles that advance the automotive industry's environmental progress. Our FE Fuel Cell Concept is an important evolution of our pioneering hydrogen leadership, and moves us closer to our vision for a 'Hydrogen Society', where transportation is clean, efficient and enhances the lives of our customers."

The FE Fuel Cell Concept continues Hyundai Motor's commitment to fuel cell vehicle development and is part of the company's eco-vehicle program that will see 14 or more new environmentally-focused models introduced by 2020. Spurred on by greater global demand for fuel-efficient, eco-friendly vehicles, the programme continues the example of innovation set by the Ioniq, the first car to offer a choice of three electrified powertrains in a single body type.
