Hydrogen-Powered Fuel-Cell Car Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell is the world’s first series-produced, commercially available hydrogen-powered fuel-cell car. It offers zero harmful tailpipe emissions and quiet operation without range compromises. ENVIRONMENTAL When the hydrogen used to power cars is from a carbon-neutral source, near carbon-neutral, emission-free personal transportation becomes possible.
The third-generation fuel-cell electric vehicle (FCEV) from Hyundai is powered by hydrogen and driven by an electric motor, resulting in zero harmful tailpipe emissions and quiet operation. A single tank of hydrogen gives a range of almost 600 kilometers, and refuelling takes just a few minutes, according to Hyundai.
SOCIAL The Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell contributes to improved health through cleaner air.
In January 2013, the Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell became the first fuelcell car in the world to enter series production. Deliveries to municipal and private fleets are already under way, with 1,000 units to be built by the end of 2015.
ECONOMIC Hydrogen can be produced locally at or near the point of use, meaning that every community can become an energy producer.1
Why a Sustainia100 solution? The ix35 Fuel Cell demonstrates how hydrogen-powered FCEVs offer an effective solution that can help deliver sustainable mobility, as hydrogen refuelling infrastructure grows and production volume increases. When produced directly from renewable sources, hydrogen can be 100% clean, if produced directly from renewable sources. The only tailpipe emissions are water vapor.
Developed in South Korea
Deployed in Belgium, Denmark, The Netherlands, Norway, South Korea, Sweden, UK, USA
The Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell is the world’s first seriesproduced fuel-cell car. Fuelled by hydrogen in just minutes, it emits only water vapor, and boasts a near-600-kilometer range.
