Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell drivers pass million-mile mark
10 February 2016
Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell drivers have accumulated more than 1,000,000 miles on the roads and highways of Southern California while emitting only clean water and replacing approximately 385 tons of CO2 emissions that would have been emitted from vehicles of similar size. Hyundai has delivered nearly 100 Tucson Fuel Cell crossovers since its introduction in June 2014. (Earlier post.)
Hyundai service engineers, with permission from vehicle owners, receive periodic mileage updates from Tucson Fuel Cell vehicles in Southern California, allowing them to calculate cumulative mileage totals as needed to assess fuel cell stack maintenance status.
The Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell CUV has an estimated driving range of 265 miles between fill-ups. Both fuel cell driving range and vehicle performance are minimally affected by either extreme hot or cold ambient temperatures. The Tucson Fuel Cell can be refilled with hydrogen in less than five minutes.
