Recognized for its technology, Hyundai Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) was successfully test-driven during the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany. Its more commercialized next-generation FCEV is going to be unveiled soon.
In 2006, the first generation was developed (test-driven during the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany).
In 2009, the second generation was developed.
In 2018, the third generation will be developed.
The electric energy generated from the fuel cell stack is used to drive the motor (Hydrogen tank + Fuel cell + Electric bus driving system). Once hydrogen is input at a hydrogen refueling station, this hydrogen is combined with oxygen in the fuel cells. As a result, water is formed and electricity is generated. The power serves as a power source to drive the wheels.
