Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell and H2 Station

Hydrogen Refuelling Station

The Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell is the first hydrogen-powered car to be permanently imported into Australia. This amazing Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) is a marvel of modern engineering. It runs on hydrogen and emits nothing but water from its exhaust pipe - while giving its driver the same kind of range, practicality and refuelling time as any 'ordinary' ix35. As there are no hydrogen refuelling stations in Australia, we build at our Macquarie Park headquarters in Sydney. So now Hyundai is leading the way with Australia's only hydrogen car, and Australia's only hydrogen refueller.
Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell Real World Driving

Real World Driving

In marrying our new fuel cell technology with the ix35 we wanted a vehicle that could match or exceed its combustion engine counterparts at every turn. We put its power, reliability and longevity to the test, logging over 3 million kilometres in some of the most extreme driving conditions on Earth - from the blistering heat of Death Valley to the Baltic ice fields of frozen Sweden.

And with a 100KW power output, top speed of 160kph and 0-to-100kph time of 12.5 seconds, the ix35 Fuel Cell exceeded expectations in every test, while operating in virtual silence and emitting nothing but water vapour.
Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell Range and Fuelling

Range & Fuelling

While rapid charging of an Electric Vehicle takes a minimum of 30 minutes (6 hours using the normal charging process), it only takes 3 to 5 minutes to fully fuel the ix35 Fuel Cell and a full tank at 700bar pressure could give an operating range of 594 kilometres. And as a pioneer of Hydrogen fuel cell technology, we're working across the world to help develop a hydrogen fuelling infrastructure.


The evolution of fuel cell vehicle technology

In 1998 we established our first Fuel Cell Unit, and took our first steps on one of the most challenging and rewarding journeys we have ever undertaken.


Turning possibility into reality

Though a fuel cell vehicle may look like any other car, underneath it has a completely different anatomy. The fuel cell at the heart of the technology works by passing hydrogen and air through a fuel cell stack. A chemical reaction within the stack generates electrical power to drive the vehicle while emitting nothing but water vapour and heat.
