Most of you don`t know Hyundai already has a fuel-cell vehicle available in the US. It is the Tucson Fuel Cell and it is now the fastest vehicle of this type in the world. The Korean manufacturer set a new land speed record for a car fueled by hidrogen.

The Tucson Fuel Cell is the first mass-produced fuel cell vehicle, with nearly 100 of these zero-emissions SUVs roaming the streets and highways of Southern California, the first of which was delivered to its owner in June 2014.

On the Soggy Dry Lake Bed of the California desert, Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell reached a top speed of 94.6 mph. The Tucson Fuel Cell has an EPA-estimated driving range of 265 miles, good for the transportation needs of many families in the Southern California region.

Southern California currently has the greatest concentration of hydrogen refueling stations in the U.S., and its hydrogen infrastructure in California is rapidly growing, with nearly 50 forecasted to be in operation in 2016.
