    Premiere for Belgium and Luxembourg of the New Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell

    The New Hydrogen Fuel Cell-powered ix35 2016 is a technological success of Hyundai, been marketed as an avant-garde winner in Fuel Cell technology, the ultimate in super competition in the global automotive industry. The South Korean manufacturer Hyundai started its triumph in Europe about 15 years ago, offering to the market a family-type SUV, simultaneously robust and practical, in sporty style, affordable, satisfying the criteria of luxury, but and of the thirst for adventure. The model that made a sensational impression during the 94th European Motor Show in Brussels Expo, January 2016, is the New Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell, based on the Hydrogenic Technology.

    Fuel Cell Hydrogenics Technology has the following mechanism: the Fuel Cell is a device that converts the energy in the molecular connections through physicochemical processes, turning it into electrical energy. In these processes of transformation of the energy from one form (chemical) to another form (electrical) important role has "Proton Exchange Membrane" (PEM), an integral part of the Fuel Cell Hydrogenics Technology. The PEM Fuel Cell uses hydrogen gas (H₂) and oxygen gas (O₂) as a fuel. In the chemical reaction of a compound (interaction) of one molecule hydrogen (H₂) with one molecule oxygen (O₂) is obtained electricity and is separated water as water vapor (heat). This process does not produce a noxious by-products, which is outstanding achievement, potentially for the environment. This accomplishment of Hyundai can deservedly be called a revolutionary from a technological point of view, considering the initial products required to obtain an electricity by this method. The oxygen is readily available in the atmosphere (it is free). That what, is to be supplied, is only hydrogen (chemical molecules hydrogen H₂), which is obtained by electrolysis (PEM electrolysis). 

    Fuel Cell Hydrogenics Technology is developed and perfected in Hyundai from about 15 years. There was made a huge amount of testing to achieve the best product. On the European roads now move over 250 cars Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell. At this year's Salon Auto/Moto in Brussels Expo 2016 was made the premiere of Fuel Cell ix35 for Belgium and Luxembourg. From June 2016 Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell is already in the catalog of the distributors and is ava

    Hydrogenics is plugged in

    Hyundai has been working a next generation fuel-cell powered SUV for a while now and the last time we talked about that SUV was back in December 2016 when it was tipped to be in development and promising a 348-mile range. Hyundai is offering up some more details on this SUV at a hydrogen vehicle preview event held in Seoul.

    As of now the new SUV has no model name, but Hyundai says the “model embodies Hyundai Motor’s commitment to a new era for advanced eco-friendly vehicle development.” The vehicle uses Hyundai’s fourth-generation hydrogen fuel cell technology and boasts improved efficiency to the tune of a 9% increase from efficiency the Tucson Fuel Cell (ix35) offered with the new SUV hitting 60% efficiency level. That means that the fuel-cell EV is good for a range of 580 km, or about 360 miles per charge.

    Hyundai wrote, “By enhancing fuel cell performance, reducing hydrogen consumption, and optimizing key components, the vehicle’s efficiency is greatly improved compared to the its predecessor, the ix35 Fuel Cell (Tucson Fuel Cell in some markets). The new SUV boasts an efficiency level of 60%, or a 9% increase from the ix35’s 55.3%. With enhanced system efficiency, the new model targets a driving range of more than 580 km on a single charge (based on Korean testing standards).”

    The new hydrogen vehicle also has improvements in storage tank density boasting three equally sized tanks rather than tanks of two different sizes. The vehicle also make more power with a 20% higher max output compared to the previous version. That means 163PS, or about 160 hp of output. Hyundai plans to mass-produce the vehicle and will pack inside advanced driver assist technology. It’s unclear when the SUV will go into production or when and where it might be available.

    “With exceptional efficiency, serene styling, and uncompromised performance, our next generation fuel cell SUV is the true epitome of an eco-friendly vehicle of the future,” said Lee Ki-sang, Senior Vice President of Hyundai Motor Group’s Eco Technology Center. “Hyundai Motor will take lead in developing and producing green energy vehicles that would ultimately complement a near-zero emission society.”

    THE FUTURE IS GETTING BRIGHTER

    SEOUL, South Korea — Hyundai Motor said Thursday it plans to launch early next year a second-generation hydrogen fuel cell vehicle that will travel more than 580 kilometres between fill-ups under Korean standards.

    If delivered as promised, the new fuel cell vehicle will travel 40 per cent farther than its first generation fuel cell SUV, the Tucson ix FCEV, launched in 2013. Under European standards, Hyundai said the new vehicle can drive 800 kilometres.

    Fuel cell cars, emission-free like pure electric cars, can be refuelled in two to three minutes unlike electric vehicles that can take several hours to fully recharge. But the dearth of hydrogen fueling stations is an obstacle for mass adoption. Toyota, Honda and General Motors also are investing heavily in fuel cell technology but fuel cell cars are gaining less traction than electric vehicles, which can find charging stations more easily.

    South Korea plans to increase the number of hydrogen fueling stations from 16 stations this year to 100 stations by 2020 to sharply raise sales of fuel cell vehicles. The country is aiming to have 10,000 fuel cell vehicles on its roads by 2020 to help alleviate air pollution, its environmental ministry said in March. That would be a jump from just 121 fuel cell cars in 2016.

    Hyundai Motor also plans to catch up in the eco-friendly car race with longer driving range electric vehicles.

    It plans to launch an electric vehicle with a driving range of 500 kilometres after 2021. Before the summer of next year, it plans to release a small electric sports utility vehicle with a driving range of 390 kilometres per charge. In 2021, its luxury brand Genesis will unveil an electric vehicle model as well.

    One reason drivers are reluctant to buy electric vehicles is that they fear not being able to find a charging station in the middle of a trip. Hyundai's first pure electric car IONIQ launched last year had a driving range of 191 kilometres (118 miles) per charge, shorter than the electric vehicles made by Tesla and General Motors.

    Hydrogen fuel cell won't make it for 2 reasons!

    1st.
    There is the global fossil fuel industry with over 100 trillion dollars in assets and money and so on.
    2nd.
    The negative global tipping points were already reached.
    Just some points in Summary:
    Last 800 tausend years greenhouse gas were stable around 300 ppm
    Best conditions for humans. - going forward
    Reach around the year 2010 Melting point of the massive ice sheets in south or north pole with ->350 ppm = parts per million

    Now we have 410 ppm and rising very quick.
    The same for methane normal over the last 800000 years is 800 ppb = parts per billion.
    Until the year 2030
    Greenhouse gas will Accelerate to 550 to 620 ppm.
    Global temperature will rise in average 4 degrees
    Collapse of food security is in the making starting by 1.5 degree before Industrialisation.
    Nowadays we have already locked 1.89 degrees
    and until 2020 we are above 2.2 degrees above the global average
    Scientist speaking about cascading effect!
    Greenhouse gas stays for minimum 100k years in the atmosphere let's say for ever!

    Watch and learn quick!

    I believe that something must be up as there is little volume at this time.

    This is usually and indication of an impending announcement.

    George...sorry to hear that you are deep in the red...as of the moment, you are not enjoying any advantage. As for long-term advantage, you own a stock that has emission free technology to help reduce air pollution, provide distributed energy in vehicles and in the electric grid, and reduce CO2.
    Yes, the progress is uneven for hygs, and that is part of businesses involved in newer and different industries. As an investor, i accept the halting progress because of the worth of what they are attempting to accomplish.
    i believe the age of hydrogen is upon us, as Toyota's CEO and the Hydrogen Council have recently stated. If i did not believe that, i would not own this stock.
