Hyundai Tucson fuel cell drivers accumulate more than one-half million zero-emission miles.
In celebration of National Hydrogen Day (in the USA), October 8th, Hyundai Tucson fuel cell drivers have logged over 1,500,000 miles on the roads and highways of both Southern and Northern California.
These fuel cell CUVs have emitted only clean water vapour, and by so doing, have replaced approximately 575 tons of CO2 emissions that would have been emitted by vehicles of similar size and capability.
Hyundai has delivered more than 125 Tucson Fuel Cell crossovers since its introduction as the first mass-produced fuel cell in the U.S. market in 2014, along with a number of units here in Canada.
“Breaking the one-point-five million mile consumer mileage barrier gives us greater vision into the unlimited zero-emissions potential for Hyundai’s fuel cell vehicles,” said Mike O’Brien, vice president, corporate and product planning, Hyundai Motor America. “With our growing consumer fleet of hydrogen-powered Tucson fuel cells accumulating miles and thus reducing corresponding emissions, we’re excited to help fulfill the unlimited potential for a zero-emissions hydrogen vehicle future.”
