Hyundai  just became the world’s first automaker to begin assembly-line production of a zero-emissions, hydrogen-powered  vehicle. The first Hyundai ix35 fuel cell vehicle  rolled off Hyundai’s assembly line yesterday at the company’s Ulsan manufacturing plant in South Korea.
“With the ix35 fuel cell vehicle , Hyundai  is leading the way into the zero-emissions future,” Hyundai  Motor Vice Chairman, Eok Jo Kim said at the ceremony today. “The ix35 Fuel Cell  is the most eco-friendly vehicle in the auto industry and proves that hydrogen fuel cell technology in daily driving is no longer a dream.”
The first ix35 fuel cell vehicle  will be one of 17 destined for fleet customers in the cities of Copenhagen, Denmark and Skåne, Sweden. The Municipality of Copenhagen , as part of its initiative to be carbon-free by 2025, will be supplied with 15 ix35 Fuel Cell vehicles for fleet use, according to an agreement that was announced in September 2012. Two ix35 Fuel Cell vehicles will be supplied to Skåne, Sweden.
“Assembly-line production  of fuel cell vehicle marks a crucial milestone in the history of the automobile industry not just in Korea, but throughout the world,” Mang Woo Park, mayor of Ulsan city, said in his congratulatory message. “By supplying more hydrogen  refueling stations to support the eco-friendly fuel cell vehicles produced, we will make Ulsan the landmark for eco-friendly automobiles.” Hyundai  hopes to build 1,000 ix35 Fuel Cell vehicles by 2015 for lease to public and private fleets.
