Hyundai Delivers First Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles to UK Customers
The first Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell vehicles have arrived for the first time in the UK which continues Hyundai's global opening of the world's pioneering series of hydrogen-powered car.
Having been researching and developing around this Eco-sector since 1998, now by supplying customers in the UK with these zero-emission vehicles, the car manufacturer is definitely cleaning the road of progress for the clean technology.
The new Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell vehicles are part of London's Hydrogen Network Expansion (LHNE) project which strives to establish a valuable hydrogen-fueled transport system for the first time across London and the South East. The Fuel Cell vehicles will be just another asset which will be added to the set of hydrogen-powered vans. The latter are already in use as part of the same project.
Since Hyundai always seeks to achieve more and more, the manufacturer is part of other collaborative enterprises and schemas such as supplying HyTEC, which along with HyFIVE is funded by the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU); participating in the UKH2 Mobility project that has had a pivotal part in advising government. And last but not least, there is a project which is backed by Innovate, and Hydrogen for Innovative Vehicles (HyFIVE).
The new eco car produces zero harmful tailpipe emissions, thus, the only thing that comes out of the tailpipe is water. Moreover, Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell can travel more than 350 miles in real driving conditions before refueling which makes it really convenient enough, don't you think? This resembles the refueling of vehicles that run on petrol or diesel.
The cars arrive just a few days after Business Minsiter Matthew Hancock declares that £11 million of UK government and industry funding will support the hydrogen transport. After all, this will help the growth of the refueling infrastructure, right? Additionally, the provided financial support will result in an expanded nationwide hydrogen refueling station network which, on the other hand, will resonate in increased interest in the fuel cell vehicles and their use.
UK customers are already able to order the innovative Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell vehicles.
