Hyundai Motor will Become an Exporter of 100 Hydrogen powered Vehicles

Hyundai Motor appears to be a car maker that is getting closer to achieving its goal of mass-marketing cars run on hydrogen.

The company will export hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicles to the UK, France and Germany, in what may be the start of full-scale exports to Europe.

Hyundai Motor was the first to sell hydrogen fuel cell vehicles last year when it sold 15 units of ix35/Tucson Fuel Cell to Denmark and two units to Sweden. Hyundai Motor has been chosen as the supplier of hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicles in bidding organized by the UK, German and French governments and is taking the last steps toward concluding the deal.

The development is a green light for the company which has set a goal of selling 1,000 hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicles by 2015. The competition in the hydrogen fuel cell vehicles segment is getting fiercer as carmakers are keen on getting a head start to dominate the green car market.

Toyota Motor and Honda Motor announced that they would establish a mass-market system for hydrogen fuel cell cars by 2015 and Mercedes-Benz by 2017. Hyundai Motor is set to respond by raising sales in Europe and the USA.
