Summary

Owing to energy and environmental issues, a polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) has attracted great attention for automotive applications because of its high energy efficiency and power density. Hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) with PEMFCs installed are a promising candidate for transportation owing to a lack of fossil fuel and zero-emission mobility. Hyundai Motor Company (HMC) has been developing FCEVs since the end of the 1990s. With technical advancement and governmental financial aid, HMC has developed several different kinds of FCEV and operated over 200 FCEVs worldwide. HMC has actively participated in a European joint study of hydrogen and fuel cell vehicle deployment activities: H2Mobility and H2moves Scandinavia since early 2011. HMC recently announced that it will begin small series production of a hydrogen ix35 FCEV for public and private lease by the end of 2012 at the Paris Motor Show. HMC has an active FCEV deployment plan for the European market from early 2013.
