Hydrogen stations

A system made of five key parts.

  1. The hydrogen stored in the tank is supplied to the fuel cell stack.

  2. Inflow of air is supplied to the fuel cell stack.

  3. The reaction of air and hydrogen in the fuel cell stack generates electricity and water.

  4. The electricity generated is supplied to the motor and battery.

  5. What comes out after all this? Pure water..

The Future

Intrado

The next level of Fuel Cell car design.
The Intrado concept car is rethinking what a car can be. Developed from the inside out, the interior is defined by a focus on usability and adaptability, with innovative materials and contrasting colours utilised to appeal to consumers with an active lifestyle. The exterior of Intrado presents a progressive interpretation of our signature design language, fluidic sculpture. Intrado is driven by a next-generation hydrogen fuel cell powertrain that is smaller and more powerful. Thanks to the efficiency of the fuel cell system and its low weight, Intrado has a range of more than 600 kilometres, yet emits only water.

The Present

ix35 Fuel Cell

The Product of New Thinking. New Possibilities. While auto manufacturers around the world have driven themselves to develop faster, more convenient technology, Hyundai Motor Company has moved ahead of the pack: creating the perfect hydrogen fuel cell vehicle that runs on hydrogen instead of fossil fuel. The ix35 Fuel Cell is not only in our dreams and imaginations, it's driving into our lives right now.
