The South Korean based automaker Hyundai has recently announced the production start of the brand new ix35 fuel cell.
According to the car manufacturer, the Hyundai ix35 fuel cell is expected to become a fleet vehicle for the City of Copenhagen or Skane, Sweden, and this will be one of the 17 ix35s used by the municipalities. Those of you interested in a fuel cell vehicle don’t have to wait any longer to get your hands on one because Hyundai says that the first unit of the ix35 fuel cell has recently rolled off the assembly line at the company’s facility in Ulsan, South Korea.
The Hyundai ix35 fuel cell has a fuel cell stack which is converting hydrogen into electricity powering the electric motor. This is allowing the green crossover to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 12.5 seconds before reaching a top speed of 160 km/h (99 mph). The total range of the ix35 in question is 594 km (369 miles) with a single tank of hydrogen. A total of 1,000 units of the ix35 fuel cell will be produced by 2015 and they will target European governments and private fleets and after the company will lower its production costs, in 2015, and the hydrogen infrastructure will allow it, it will target retail customers too.
