It’s been quite a long time since hydrogen powered experimental cars came into existence, but the general public has not been able to get their hands on this eco-friendly vehicle but all is about to change as Hyundai has announced today that it will start mass producing of hydrogen fuel cell powered vehicles from this week. Hyundai will be rolling out hydrogen fuel cell version of its Tucson ix SUV at its plant in Ulsan, South Korea. The car has a rather low 134 horsepower engine and its takes 12 seconds to get from 0 to 60 mph. Hyundai claims that its cars will be able to run 594 kilometers before needing a refill.
Taking into mind its estimated $200,000 (10,819,886 INR) price tag, Hyundai Motor is remaining optimistic as it plans to sell a thousand units all around the world by the year 2015. But considering the scarcity of hydrogen refueling stations across the world and its exuberant price do you think that this vehicle could actually make a difference?
