Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell drivers in California, U.S.A, have accumulated more than three million zero-emissions kilometres by Earth Day 2017.

25 Apr 2017 | International News : U.S.A

In celebration of Earth Day 2017, Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell drivers have accumulated more than three million kilometres on the roads and highways of both Southern and Northern California in the U.S.A. These fuel cell compact utility vehicles have emitted only clean water vapour, and by so doing, have replaced approximately 760 tonnes of CO2 emissions that would have been emitted by vehicles of similar size and capability.

Hyundai has delivered more than 140 Tucson Fuel Cell crossovers since its introduction as the first mass-produced fuel cell in the U.S.A market in 2014. Hyundai service engineers, with permission from vehicle owners, receive periodic mileage updates from Tucson Fuel Cell vehicles in Southern California, allowing them to calculate cumulative mileage totals as needed to assess fuel cell stack maintenance status.

The energy-rich hydrogen fuel provides an estimated driving range of 426km between fill-ups, similar to many petrol vehicles. The Tucson Fuel Cell can be refilled with hydrogen in less than five minutes, about the same time as a typical petrol vehicle. Fuel cell vehicles, due to their compact and relatively lightweight fuel cell stack design, are completely production scalable from small to large vehicles, such as urban-focused mini-compact cars all the way to full-size buses and trucks.
