Hyundai’s Hydrogen Fuel Cell Could Be A Game Changer
Total Articles: 2
If you're already a fan of Hyundai, which is a relative newcomer to the American market, you will be interested to know that the company is now planning to enter the electric vehicle market. The Korean automaker's cars and SUV's not only already provide a high level of content for an affordable price, but are also currently backed by one of the industry's longest warranties.
Having been long reluctant to enter the battery EV world, Hyundai in Korea is already selling a compact battery electric vehicle, or BEV, called the BlueOn.
There's a growing market for battery based vehicles ranging from hybrids, to plug-ins, to full battery-electric vehicles. Hyundai already offers gas-electric options in the U.S. with its midsize Sonata and compact Elantra models, and is now facing increased pressure to go further.
In the U.S., California will mandate that all major manufacturers include some sort of Zero-Emissions Vehicle, or ZEV, in their line-up. In fact, the majority of Hyundai's electric vehicles will likely be sold in California. Until now, Hyundai has attempted to meet this mandate with their fuel-cell vehicle, which combines hydrogen and oxygen to create current which is able to power electric motors. Hyundai Motor America has no choice to enter the electric vehicle market now, if it's to stay within California's regulations. "Our primary zero-emission vehicle focus is fuel cell right now," tweeted HMA Chief Executive John Krafcik, "but we will certainly field a BEV at some point."
The Hyundai Battery EV is expected to go 90 miles on a single charge, powered by a 16.4-kilowatt hour lithium polymer battery. For decades, Hyundai has offered the best in power, fuel-efficiency, higher-end materials, affordability, as well as reliability.
Battery-powered EV's typically appeal to consumers with short commutes who find it convenient to charge at home. With Hyundai's history of creating vehicles that meet the demands and standards of the marketplace, their electric vehicles will likely rank among the best in terms of long-distance travel.
