2015 Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell Comes With Free Hydrogen Fuel

By | November 21, 2013
Hyundai was one of three automakers to debut hydrogen fuel cell vehicles this week, but unlike its competitors, it is the only to reveal specifics about the new model. At the Los Angeles Auto Show this week, Hyundai announced it will offer free hydrogen fueling to customers of the 2015 Tucson Fuel Cell, which comes to market this spring. Leasing will start at $499 a month. The 2015 Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell will initially be offered to consumers in the Los Angeles and Orange County areas as part of a 36-month lease with $2,999 down. Initially, there will only be three or four retail and service locations available, but Hyundai has solved this problem. Consistent with its Hyundai Assurance legacy, the automaker will offer free maintenance, including free pickup of the vehicle for repair. The vehicle also qualifies for a clean car rebate for drivers in California. This new Tucson utilizes fuel cells that converts hydrogen electricity to power the vehicle, all while maintaining zero emissions status. Unlike electric cars, however, the Tucson Fuel Cell will be able to travel 300 miles on a single charge, a distance comparable to gas-powered cars.
