Hyundai is showing a Tucson SUV with a fuel cell in place of a traditional gasoline engine for the Los Angeles auto show. If the Tucson looks familiar, you may have seen it on the street. Hyundai recently took part in the Hydrogen Road Tour, which was a 13-day drive across the country to demonstrate the feasibility of hydrogen-powered vehicles in real world driving conditions.
There aren't many specifics available right now, but we're betting the Hyundai uses a system similar to that found in the Kia Borrego FCEV, which is also debuting at the Los Angeles show. Hyundai did tell us the Tucson could go 185 miles before refueling and allegedly hit speeds of 95 mph on the Hydrogen Road Tour.
That's all we know for now, but stay tuned to Automobilemag.com and we'll bring you more information on the Tucson FCEV and all the other green machines from the 2008 Los Angeles auto show as we learn more.
