Hyundai announces December production start for ix35 fuel cell vehicle

The model is designed as the halo for Hyundai’s Blue Drive sub-brand of environmentally-friendly vehicles, and has just completed a tour of the UK offering press and members of the public a chance to test-drive the pre-production version. It concludes a month-long pan-European tour aimed at reaching politicians and industry leaders to promote investment in infrastructure ahead of a market launch.

Tony Whitehorn, president and chief executive officer of Hyundai Motor UK, said: ‘'Hyundai is committed to being the industry leader in eco-friendly mobility. We have previously given ix35 Fuel Cell vehicles to the European Parliament to use for test-drives, and we have also taken part in numerous zero-emission events and tests across the continent, proving their practicality, safety and usability.

‘The European Hydrogen Road Tour now enables us to give the public a great opportunity to test these incredible cars, which we believe can help create a society with a sustainable energy supply and zero-emission mobility.'
