FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Aug. 30, 2016 – Hyundai’s zero-emissions, hydrogen-powered Tucson Fuel Cell automobile continues to prove and attract new business focused on high-versatility and purify transportation.

2017 Tucson Fuel Cell

“At Hyundai, we strongly trust that hydrogen-powered fuel dungeon vehicles paint a subsequent era of zero-emission automobile technology, and we’re unapproachable to be a personality in charity a mass-produced Tucson Fuel Cell to a customers,” pronounced Mike O’Brien, clamp president, Corporate and Product Planning, Hyundai Motor America. “Every day, these business are enjoying a advantages of refueling speed and higher operation that review agreeably with gasoline vehicles, providing a seamless transition from normal vehicles with minimal detriment of utility. We’re assured that advancing fuel dungeon record will boost a adoption of zero-emission vehicles, and that everybody will benefit.”

The Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell has also perceived clever support from supervision agencies, such as a California Air Resources Board. “These ultra-clean vehicles play a vicious purpose in a efforts to purify a atmosphere and accommodate a meridian goals,” pronounced Air Resources Board authority Mary D. Nichols. “Fuel dungeon cars are not vehicles of a destiny – they’re here now, and we extol Hyundai for bringing them initial to marketplace in California where they are many needed.”

The Tucson Fuel Cell franchise module stays unvaried for 2017. Customers in both Southern and Northern California can expostulate Hyundai’s Tucson Fuel Cell for usually $499 per month for a 36-month term, with a $2,999 down payment. This includes a further of a conspicuous advantage – sum nominal hydrogen refueling and At Your Service Valet Maintenance during no additional cost.

“When we spoke with business about fuel dungeon vehicles, many wondered about a cost of hydrogen,” explained O’Brien. “To palliate those concerns as a hydrogen refueling network builds out, we motionless that covering this cost for these early adopters was unchanging with how we like to yield a customers.”

In addition, Tucson Fuel Cell owners suffer concierge services such as At Your Service Valet Maintenance, during no additional cost. Should a Tucson Fuel Cell need any service, a Hyundai play will collect adult a automobile and yield a loan vehicle, afterwards lapse a automobile after use to a customer’s home or business, during no charge.

Customers meddlesome in a Tucson Fuel Cell can prove their seductiveness (the initial step in a grouping process) by visiting Hyundai.com. Retail consumers can find accessibility during 5 name California Hyundai dealers: Win Hyundai in Carson, Tustin Hyundai, Hardin Hyundai in Anaheim, Keyes Hyundai in Los Angeles and Capitol Hyundai in San Jose. Availability of a Tucson Fuel Cell will enhance to other regions of a U.S. unchanging with a accelerating deployment of hydrogen refueling stations. Tucson offers 3 extraneous tone options: Winter White, Hydro Blue and Chromium Silver.

Hyundai has grown a Tucson Fuel Cell to assuage some of a operation and application stipulations of normal battery electric vehicles. The Tucson Fuel Cell maintains a day-to-day coherence of a gasoline-powered Tucson, so that a motorist is means to perform their travel needs but operation or recharging-time concerns to their lifestyle.

The Tucson Fuel Cell is an modernized electric automobile – one that creates a possess electricity, on-board, from hydrogen. According to a University of California, Irvine Advanced Power and Energy Program’s 2013 study, a hydrogen fuel dungeon provides allied sum well-to-wheel emissions to a battery electric vehicle. For a Tucson Fuel Cell driver, this amicable advantage is achieved with larger utility, flexibility and but compromises. Consider:

  • Driving operation of 265 miles
  • Refueling time identical to gasoline automobile of same size; about 5 minutes
  • Minimal rebate in daily application compared with a gasoline counterpart
  • Instantaneous electric engine torque
  • Minimal cold-weather effects compared with battery-electric vehicles
  • Superb daily trustworthiness and long-term durability
    • No relocating tools within a power-generating fuel dungeon stack
    • More than dual million continuance exam miles on Hyundai’s fuel dungeon swift given 2000
  • Extensive crash, glow and trickle contrast successfully completed
  • Quieter EV operation
  • Zero greenhouse-gas emissions, emits usually H2O vapor

The Tucson Fuel Cell began mass prolongation in Feb 2013 during a Ulsan, Korea public plant that also manufactures a Tucson gasoline-powered CUV. Manufacturing a Tucson Fuel Cell during a same plant allows Hyundai to precedence both a high peculiarity and cost-efficiency of a renouned gasoline-powered Tucson platform.

The advantages of hydrogen are good famous – compulsory reserve for a U.S. marketplace can be constructed domestically and a supply is probably unlimited. It can be constructed by sundry means – including renewable sources such as biogas. Hydrogen can even be sourced directly from water, regulating electrolysis to separate hydrogen molecules with electricity from renewable appetite sources such as breeze and solar.

Further ancillary hydrogen infrastructure development, California authorized a devise to rise adult to 100 hydrogen refueling stations in a state over a subsequent several years. This new California beginning dovetails with increasing supervision support of hydrogen infrastructure growth during a sovereign level, such as H2USA. In addition, a California Energy Commission awarded $44.5 million for a growth of 28 new hydrogen stations (plus one mobile refueler), bringing a sum series of hydrogen fueling stations (open, in-development, and proposed) to over 50 stations in a nearby future.

Hyundai’s fuel dungeon effectively replaces a battery container used in an electric automobile by generating electricity from hydrogen by an electrochemical routine that does not engage hydrogen combustion, with no relocating tools within a fuel dungeon stack.

The fuel dungeon electrochemical routine is as follows:

  • Hydrogen enters a anode, atmosphere (oxygen) enters a cathode
  • Catalyst splits a hydrogen electrons and protons
  • Electrolyte conducts a positively-charged ions while restraint a electrons
  • Electrons are used to emanate an outmost circuit, generating electricity
  • Catalyst combines a hydrogen ions and electrons with oxygen to emanate H2O and feverishness energy
  • A singular fuel dungeon produces approximately one volt; fuel cells are “stacked” to accommodate voltage requirements
