Are you one of the lucky Hyundai FCEV drivers?
The roll-out of the first Hyundai “Tucson” FCEVs began on June 9th in Southern California, with customers taking delivery from Hyundai dealers in Tustin, Carson, and Anaheim. Reporter David Szondy described the release in this article at Gizmg.com and included these basic facts:
- 36-month term lease agreement with US$2,999 down and $499 per month
- Hyundai provides the hydrogen as well as 100% free service (if needed) via its At Your Service Valet Maintenance program
- 265 mile range
- 10 minutes to refuel
- Two million test miles since 2000
Combined with California’s commitment to facilitating the construction and operation of fifty refueling stations in the coming years and Toyota’s announcement that they intend to release their FCEV sedan earlier than planned, a truly clean energy future awaits us. As Dave Zuchowski, president and chief executive officer, Hyundai Motor America, said: “Hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicles represent the next generation of zero-emission vehicle technology, and we’re thrilled to be a leader in offering the mass-produced Tucson Fuel Cell to our first retail customer.”
