Hyundai has introduced the future of driving with its very first mass-produced hydrogen fuel cell vehicle.

The 2016 Hyundai Tucson FCEV (fuel cell electric vehicle) burns its store of liquid hydrogen into clean water vapor that ultimately propels the car to a range of 369 miles on a single tank.

Burning hydrogen that charges a 24kWh battery, which then hands power to the 100kW electric motor that delivers its motive energy to the front wheels, creates the revolutionary power conversion process of the Hyundai Tucson FCEV power plant.

This elegant process means the FCEV functions at zero-emissions and requires only three minutes to fill up its hydrogen tanks to full range.

The hydrogen capability of this FCEV is added with few external alterations. The clean-lines and storage space are largely unaffected with the hydrogen storage tank, resting where the spare tire would normally go.

This FCEV represents the forward-looking direction that Hyundai is headed and we hope you’ll check out Riverhead Hyundai for the car you will drive into the future.
