Hyundai and U.S. Department of Energy expand fuel cell vehicle partnership

Hyundai and U.S. Department of Energy expand fuel cell vehicle partnership

Hyundai and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) have entered the second phase of the fuel cell vehicle partnership as they prepare for the rollout of fuel cell vehicles nationwide in the near future.

The latest stage of the programme, which runs through 2017, involves Hyundai providing a number of Tucson Fuel Cell CUVs for daily use and confirmation by the DOE using existing hydrogen infrastructure and with the help of a newly-opened hydrogen refuelling station in the Washington D.C. region.

The latest phase builds on the first stage of the programme, which focused exclusively in the Southern California region, and now expands into Northern California, Washington D.C., Michigan and Denver.

The partnership is intended to pave the way for the rollout of fuel cell vehicles nationwide in the near future.
