Yonhap reported that Hyundai Motor aims to ship 5,000 hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles to France by 2025. The carmaker plans to sign initial agreements with local companies to promote hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV), the company said in a statement.
On Tuesday, Hyundai will sign a memorandum of understanding with Air Liquide and Engie for the spread of the emission-free car and charging stations in France. Under the deal, the two French companies will establish fueling stations for FCEVs across France by the target year. The fueling infrastructure is for both passenger and commercial vehicles that use hydrogen.
US management consulting firm McKinsey & Company in November 2017 noted that the Hydrogen Council expects that the world’s hydrogen fuel cell vehicle market will grow to 400 million passenger cars; 15 million-20 million trucks; and 5 million buses by 2025.
