Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell EV


Hyundai revealed the latest iteration of its FCEV (Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle) program, built upon a new Tuscon ix SUV.

And it’s far from just a study concept, as the Korean company has plans to mass produce fuel cell cars by 2015.

This new model features a new type of modular fuel cell system that is downsized by 20percent than the last one and yet offers twice the range. It is capable of 650 km on one charge which is remarkably more than the 370 km of ix35 revealed in 2010. That’s the same range you get from a petrol powered car.
