HYUNDAI MOTOR CHOSEN FOR THIRD CONSECUTIVE YEAR FOR EUROPEAN COMMISSION BACKED HYDROGEN FUEL CELL DEMONSTRATIONS

Posted on 15. Jun, 2014 by in Hyundai Canada

May 2, 2014 – Hyundai Motor’s ix35 Fuel Cell has been comparison for a third uninterrupted year by a European Commission-backed Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) to denote a real-world advantages of hydrogen fuel dungeon technology.

Two examples of a ix35 Fuel Cell, a world’s initial mass prolongation fuel dungeon electric automobile (FCEV), will be driven during 2014 by Members of a European Parliament (MEPs), European Commissioners, EU officials and other policymakers in Brussels.

Hyundai Motor has leased a hydrogen-powered fuel dungeon automobile to a FCH JU given Oct 2011. Over a march of a final dual years, a ix35 Fuel Cell has been presented to EU decision-makers, stakeholders and a ubiquitous open during a series of proof drives and open events opposite Europe.

Byung Kwon Rhim, President of Hyundai Motor Europe, commented: “The fact that a Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell has been selected for a third uninterrupted year underlines a vehicle’s pioneering proceed to purify mobility solutions. Hyundai Motor and a colleagues during a FCH-JU will continue to work together to foster a advantages and advantages of hydrogen and fuel dungeon technology.”

“The prominence of a fuel dungeon and hydrogen record in a market-ready product, together with a ability to experience, hands-on, pushing a fuel dungeon car, are of essential significance to make pivotal stakeholders know that fuel cells and hydrogen are technologies for today”, pronounced Bert De Colvenaer, Executive Director of a Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking

Examples of a Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell are already being leased by open and private fleets, essentially in Europe, where a European Union has determined a hydrogen highway map and instituted construction of hydrogen fuelling stations. Public authorities in Denmark, France, Germany, Sweden and a UK have already taken deliveries of ix35 Fuel Cell cars.

In Apr 2014, Hyundai Motor announced a devise to broach 75 units of ix35 Fuel Cell as partial of a largest ever pan-European fuel-cell newcomer automobile project. The Hydrogen for Innovative Vehicles (HyFIVE) project, saved by FCH JU, will see deliveries done in Bolzano (Italy), Copenhagen (Denmark), Innsbruck (Austria), London (UK), Munich and Stuttgart (Germany). As partial of a project, a existent pan-European refuelling infrastructure will be stretched significantly, providing larger choice and preference to early adopters of FCEV technology.

The Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell represents a perfection of a fuel dungeon expansion programme that began in 1998, and continues during a company’s dedicated fuel dungeon investigate centre during a Eco Technology Research Institute in Korea. In Jan 2013 a association became a world’s initial automaker to start mass prolongation of zero-emission, hydrogen-powered vehicles, underlining a position as a world-leader in a expansion of fuel dungeon technology.

About a Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU)

The Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) is a singular open private partnership ancillary research, technological expansion and proof (RTD) activities in fuel dungeon and hydrogen appetite technologies in Europe. Its aim is to accelerate a marketplace introduction of these technologies, realising their intensity as an instrument in achieving a carbon-lean appetite system.

Fuel cells, as an fit acclimatisation technology, and hydrogen, as a purify appetite carrier, have a good intensity to assistance cut CO dioxide emissions, revoke coherence on hydrocarbons and minister to mercantile growth. The design of a FCH JU is to move these advantages to Europeans by a strong bid from all sectors.

The 3 members of a FCH JU are a European Union represented by a European Commission, fuel dungeon and hydrogen industries represented by a NEW Industry Grouping and a investigate village represented by a Research Grouping N.ERGHY.
