Hyundai presenterer i disse dager en ix35 drevet med hydrogen og str?m for produksjon i 2015. Bilen kan kj?re 650 km mellom hver lading og radius er nesten dobbelt s? stor som forrige versjon med samme teknologi. Bilens topphastighet blir 160 km/t mens co2 utslippet er 0. Hyundai har allerede logget to millioner kilometer testing med biler basert p? hydrogen.
Seoul, Korea) Hyundai Motor Company has completed development of its next- generation hydrogen fuel cell vehicle — the ix35 Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle — and will begin testing next year with an eye toward 2015 mass production.
Hyundai?s third-generation FCEV is equipped with a 100-kilowatt fuel-cell system and two hydrogen storage tanks (700MB). With fuel efficiency of 31 kilometers per liter, the SUV can travel 650 kilometers on a single charge ? a range equal to a gasoline-powered car. It can start in temperatures as low as minus-25 degrees Celsius.
The ix35 FCEV?s range is a 55-percent improvement over the second-generation Tucson FCEV, which was limited to 370 kilometers on one charge. The new model gets 31 kilometers per liter, a 15-percent improvement over the previous version.
More than 95 percent of the ix35 FCEV?s major components were made with Korean technology through close collaboration with about 120 domestic auto parts manufacturers. Bulky parts in the fuel-cell system were downsized to bring the overall engine volume in line with conventional gasoline engines.
Hyundai is taking part in the Hydrogen Road Tour organized by the U.S. Department of Energy. Its hydrogen vehicles have so far registered more than 2 million kilometers. Hyundai plans to make a limited supply of the ix35 FCEV in 2012 and begin mass production in 2015. Hyundai unveiled a cutaway version of the ix35 FCEV at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
