Fuel cell Hyundai gets spring 2014 US launch
The Tucson Fuel Cell is the same as the ix35 FCEV now being leased to European fleet customers, and offers a 300-mile range from a refuel taking less than ten minutes.
Customers will be offered a $499 per month leasing deal, based on a $2,999 deposit and 36-month term, which includes free hydrogen refuelling and valet maintenance, with free collection and delivery, and a courtesy car, from the dealer.
John Krafcik, president and chief executive officer, Hyundai Motor America, said: ‘When we spoke to customers interested in driving a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle, many wondered what the cost of hydrogen would be.
‘To ease those concerns as we build-out the hydrogen refueling network, we thought covering this cost for these early adopters in the monthly payment was the best approach, and consistent with other aspects of our Hyundai Assurance program. It's our way of saying: “This is another thing you don't have to worry about, we've got your back.”’
