Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell drivers have accumulated more than three million miles on the roads and highways of both Southern and Northern California. These fuel cell CUVs have emitted only clean water vapor, and by so doing, have replaced approximately 1,140 tons of CO2 emissions that would have been emitted by vehicles of similar size and capability. Hyundai has delivered more than 150 Tucson Fuel Cell crossovers since its introduction as the first mass-produced fuel cell vehicle in the US market in 2014.
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, about the same time as a typical gasoline vehicle.
