Hyundai plans three new all-electric cars by 2022


Locally, Hyundai was the first auto company to permanently import a fuel cell electric vehicle, the ix35 Fuel Cell, and has agreed to supply 20 FE's to the ACT Government in late 2018 as part of the Hornsdale Windfarm Stage 3 project. The automaker and partner Kia Motors Corp, which together rank fifth in worldwide vehicle deals, additionally said they are arranging 31 eco-accommodating models by 2020, up from a formerly hailed 28. It is likely to be offered at a competitive price as its auto parts sister company Hyundai Mobis has recently completed the industry's only plant with an integrated system capable of producing all major parts for the fuel cell vehicle.

The new SUV shown at the special event previews Hyundai Motor's second commercially produced hydrogen model and uses the company's fourth generation of hydrogen fuel cell technology. That would be a jump from just 121 fuel cell cars in 2016.

Performance (maximum output): The new model's maximum output is enhanced by 20% compared to its predecessor, boasting an impressive 163PS of power. The lineup includes 10 hybrid electric cars, 11 plug-in hybrids, eight pure EVs and 2 FCEVs. The new vehicle is fitted with the company's self-developed membrane electrode assemblies (MEA), a core component of the fuel cell stack. But the dearth of hydrogen fueling stations is an obstacle for mass adoption.
