Hyundai to unveil ix35 fuel cell vehicle at EcoVelocity show

EcoVelocityKorean carmaker Hyundai has announced that it’s new environment-friendly ix35 Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) would be unveiled at the upcoming EcoVelocity show.

The Hyundai ix35 FCEV, which is Hyundai's third-generation fuel-cell vehicle, runs on a fuel cell stalk that has the capability to operate at temperatures as low as -25 degree Celsius.

The motor doesn’t draw power from batteries charged from the mains, but from the clean hydrogen fuel cell with water vapour as its only emission.

Despite such environmental advantages, the ix35 doesn’t compromise on performance. A single hydrogen fill is sufficient to drive around 360 miles, with a maximum speed of 100mph.

The fuel cell electric vehicle consumes just 12.8 seconds to sprint from zero to 62mph.

Speaking about the vehicle, Hyunda UK MD Tony Whitehorn said, “Hyundai is a world leader in the development of hydrogen-powered technology and is constantly researching and developing modes of transportation that use alternative fuels at the Eco-technology research institute in Mabuk, Korea.”

EcoVelocity, the low-carbon motor festival will take place at London's Battersea Power Station from 8th to 11th of September.
