the Toyota Mirai takes the majority of headlines, but it is not the only model that should arouse your attention if you are interested in hydrogen vehicles. Hyundai also believes that the fuel cell will be one of the alternatives for the future, and in fact already marketed models moved to hydrogen.
The Hyundai ix35 FCEV is the first car in fuel cell produced in series that has been on sale in Europe, and will also be in Spain. This SUV hydrogen is already marketed in several european countries, and indeed the Korean manufacturer has delivered in Europe nothing less than fifty units of the model during the past month of October.
Until now, Hyundai has sold on our continent about 250 electric vehicles have been moved to hydrogen, both to individuals and to companies. This sales figure will certainly increase in the coming months and years, given that they plan to increase your bet: before the end of this 2015, the Hyundai ix35 hydrogen will be on sale in Spain, in addition to in twelve other european countries.
In Engine.is because you have been told in the first person what are you doing the model in the test of the Hyundai ix35 hydrogen. With an electric motor of 100 kW (136 HP) and front-wheel drive, it offers an autonomy of up to 594 kilometers with a single tank, a maximum speed of 160 km/h and an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 12.5 seconds.
of course, it is a vehicle of zero pollutant emissions: only emits water vapor through its exhaust pipe. For the moment still has not been informed of his prices, but we do know that the dealers european Hyundai will be able to perform maintenance or repair work on these vehicles fuel cell without any type of problem, which is a point in its favor.
The main drawback we find in a infrastructure of charging points totally inadequate and that is virtually conspicuous by its absence, at least in Spain: this will be one of the main obstacles to saving for hydrogen to become a real alternative to short-term.
