    Hyundai’s zero-emission car,ix35 runs on hydrogen and emits nothing except water vapour

    CAR sharing and alternative fuels are thefuture of sustainable mobility. Hyundai
    has now gone a step ahead and combinedthe two with the introduction of its ix35
    fuel cell vehicle (FCV) to a car sharing service. A fleet of 50 ix35s will be part of
    the car sharing service, BeeZero programme, run by the Linde Group in
    Munich, Germany. The ix35 FCV is the world’s first ever mass-produced fuel cell
    vehicle. Leaving behind only a trail of water vapour from its exhaust, the
    zero emission vehicle can manage nearly 600 kilometres on a
    single charge of its two high pressure tanks. The Korean car maker claims the car can deliver over 105 kilometres per kilogram of hydrogen. Hyundai is currently selling the FCV in 13 European countries and in South Korea and North America, where it is sold as the Tucson. It was also spotted at the Auto Expo in Delhi, but the fuel cell powered version may not make it to India.

    Nature nurture
    Markus Schrick, CEO of Hyundai Motor Germany says, “We firmly believe the emission-free driving and superior fuel efficiency between tank fillings of the ix35 will make it an ideal car for the BeeZero programme.” He further adds that the company wanted to bring the benefits of fuel cell technology to people and imply that putting these cars to daily use will give us valuable information to improve hydrogen technologies and infrastructure.Auto enthusiasts in Munich with a soft side for the environment can learn more
