myHyundai News Hyundai unveiled the FE Fuel Concept at the Geneva Motor Show. It’s just the latest step in our journey towards a future with zero emissions.

Embracing its future vision for zero-emission mobility, Hyundai unveiled its next-generation hydrogen-fuelled production vehicle, the FE Fuel Cell Concept, at the Geneva Motor Show back in March.

Elements of the FE Fuel Cell Concept – the “FE” stands for “Future Eco” – will inspire an SUV Fuel Cell set to go on sale in 2018, one of 14 eco-friendly models to be introduced by 2020. It follows on from Hyundai’s first commercially available fuel cell vehicle, the ix35, which in 2013 became the world’s first mass-produced hydrogen-powered vehicle and is currently on sale in 17 countries worldwide.

Future Eco represents Hyundai’s world-leading advances in hydrogen fuel technology. The FE Fuel Cell has seen weight reduced by 20 per cent on the previous version while allowing for 10 per cent greater efficiency. The power density of the fuel cell stack has increased by 30 per cent, resulting in a cruising range in excess of 800km on a single fill.

And the innovation doesn’t end with performance. The FE Fuel Cell also features:

• Portable battery packs, which are charged by the car’s fuel stacks and can be used to re-power mobile devices.
• An internal air humidifier, which recycles water emitted by the car’s clean hydrogen energy circulation, creating a more comfortable cabin environment.
• There’s even an electric scooter in the boot for “final-mile” mobility, so drivers can park outside of the crowded CBD – perhaps avoiding traffic and time restrictions – and then cruise into work for the last part of the journey.

Design-wise, the FE Fuel Cell’s flowing form is inspired by water (the car’s only emission) and nature. The clean design emphasises its non-polluting nature and minimalism. This is exemplified by the dramatic and stylish rear air foil and integrated vents that provide aerodynamic efficiency through intelligent engineering.

“Hyundai Motor has a heritage of building innovative, fuel-efficient vehicles that advance the automotive industry’s environmental progress,” said Woong Chul Yang, Vice Chairman of Hyundai Motor Company. “Our FE Fuel Cell Concept is an important evolution of our pioneering hydrogen leadership, and moves us closer to our vision for a ‘Hydrogen Society’, where transportation is clean, efficient and enhances the lives of our customers.”

Hyundai has already established itself as a global leader for hydrogen transportation.

In 2016, Hyundai became part of an exciting new project with the aim of creating 100 per cent renewable energy in the ACT by 2020. As part of the project, Hyundai will deliver 20 hydrogen-powered ix35 vehicles to the ACT Government.

The $23 million Renewable Transport Fuels Test Berth in Canberra also includes the Hornsdale Wind Farm Stage 3 project, which will provide renewable electricity for a Siemens hydrogen refueller capable of powering over 1000 Fuel Cell vehicles.

Hyundai has also made its own contributions to Australia’s burgeoning hydrogen-refuelling infrastructure, building its own refuelling station at its Macquarie Park headquarters in Sydney.
