Hyundai Develops Better Fuel Cell SUV
SEOUL - The Hyundai Motor Co, South Korea's largest auto maker, on Thursday said it had succeeded in developing a fuel-cell electric version of its popular Tucson compact sports utility vehicle. The company said the vehicle is a major improvement over its predecessor and will be road-tested in the US for five years.
Hyundai Motor has been developing the new fuel-cell model since last May in cooperation with United States-based UTC Fuel Cells. Fuel-cell vehicles, which run on hydrogen rather than gasoline, produce no emissions and are more fuel-efficient than hybrid vehicles.
"With the development of the Tucson fuel-cell electric model, we have secured world-class technology for development of fuel-cell vehicles," Kim Sang-kwon, president of research and development for Hyundai, said.
