Tucson Fuel Cell Sets Production Fuel Cell Land Speed Record

Here at Delaney Hyundai, we're constantly on the lookout for fun stories to share with you, and this morning we came across a fun news story that we knew fit the bill.

A fuel cell land speed record was broken yesterday morning, when a Hyundai raced the water vapor-emitting Tucson Fuel Cell up to an impressive 94.6 mph at the Soggy Dry Lake Bed in the California desert. Thanks to its substantial ground clearance, the SUV easily roamed the deserts varying off-road terrain.

The Tucson Fuel Cell is a pioneer in the world of hydrogen-powered vehicles, with the first model being delivered to its owner in June 2014. With an estimated range of 265 miles, it rivals the refueling intervals of many gas-powered vehicles which emit harmful greenhouse gases.

With nearly 100 Tucson Fuel Cell SUVs on the roads, Southern California has the greatest concentration of hydrogen fueling stations in the country, with even more expected in 2016.
