Modern (Hyundai) today announced the start of mass production of hydrogen fuel cell vehicle, as the industry pioneer of led emission zero-emission vehicles. Korean Association reports that in modern factories in South Korea on Friday will begin production of Tucson IX hydrogen fuel SUV, and looked forward to in 2015 to 1000 such models sold worldwide.
As far as modern said, this Tucson IX hydrogen fuel after the addition of the fuel can be 370 miles (about 595-kilometer) away. And this car is excellent for the protection of the environment effect, Hydrogen-fueled combustion produce only water vapor. If future widespread adoption of this technology, also reduces dependence on internal combustion engines, reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
“We hope that through hydrogen fuel cell vehicles in the world’s first batch will go on environmental protection and green car concepts of universal access as soon as possible. “Hyundai Motor Vice Chairman Kim Eok-jo said on Tuesday. While modern planning in April this year to Denmark’s Government Department and Sweden 15 organizations, such as the use of hydrogen fuel cell cars.
Rivals such as Daimler-Benz, General Motors, also in the research and development of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, however modern modern this plan for at least 2 years earlier than its competitors, and its patented technology are inseparable. However modern hydrogen fuel technology still faces some problems, such as the lack of hydrogen fuelling stations may be the most intractable problem for this car. Korea has said it will create fuel stations in the cities of Ulsan. Korean Association news, now Korea has 13 hydrogen fuelling stations.
In addition, reports from Bloomberg, Tucson IX engine is 134 horsepower, from 0 to 60 mph acceleration takes only about 12 seconds of time, Bloomberg praised the car’s driving experience, but said the type of car you want to succeed in the industry will have to see their pricing strategies. Currently on the market are expected to bid on Tucson IX in the US $ 200,000 (about 1.25 million yuan), but manufacturers say between 2015 and advances in technology will at least make the car price by $ 50,000.
