Hydrogen-Fueled Hyundai ix35 Soon to Hit All 50 States

All of us here at Tameron Hyundai like to do everything we can to be as eco-conscious and earth-friendly as possible. Our favorite Korean automaker feels the same way and drivers in the greater Hoover area will be thrilled to hear about a new green automotive tech soon to hit the area and beyond, across the entire United States. It's hydrogen-fuel-cell technology and it's going to be in the new Hyundai ix35.


Based on the Hyundai Tucson CUV platform, the ix35 was recently introduced at the Geneva Motor Show to much approval. We'll be seeing it country-wide in the foreseeable future, with production set to begin in 2015. But what makes this new fuel cell so special?


Well, the ix35 will be entirely electric. It will rely on hydrogen to generate electricity and provide propulsion, as opposed to some currently existing electric cars' reliance on small amounts of standard gasoline to generate electricity in case the charge is depleted while driving. Hyundai states that the car will be able to fill in just minutes and generate 100kW, equal to 135 horsepower. With performance similar to that of a standard gasoline-powered engine, it should feel very natural to drive.


It kicks out quite a bit of power and distance, defying the common no-power-no-range stigma many current electric cars suffer from. Accelerating from 0-62 mph in just 12.5 seconds and with a top speed of 99.4 mph, this speedy green machine has all the power the vast majority of drivers need for day-to-day activities. The icing on the cake is the driving range, achieving a very impressive 370 miles between fill-ups.
