Hydrogen-powered Hyundais in London

A fleet of emission-free Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell cars will soon be taking to the streets of London in an extended test for London Hydrogen Network Expansion (LNHE) project. And there won't be a drop of pollution coming from these tailpipes.

Hyundai are to supply the special ix35s to the LHNE project, as a partner to an existing consortium of companies, all with expertise in hydrogen transport infrastructure and operation, all of them working together to build the UK’s first hydrogen transport network, covering London and south east England. The LHNE project is a government-backed initiative and is co-funded by the Technology Strategy Board, and aims to push the use of hydrogen-powered vehicles from science fiction to reality.

The high-tech new Hyundai fuel cell vehicles will be leased to public and private fleet users in London, and form part of the 1,000-strong fleet of new hydrogen cars that Hyundai will build between now and 2015.

These special ix35 Fuel Cell cars are meant to look, drive and feel like conventional cars, but with zero tailpipe emissions. Indeed, performance between the petrol and hydrogen variants is similar with 0-62mph coming in a respectable 12.5 seconds and a range of around 370 miles from each hydrogen tank. But, the only emission is water.

It seems that the future is coming to London.
