Hyundai shows dedicated fuel cell model

Hyundai has released pictures of its first dedicated fuel-cell powered SUV, which will be named at next week's Consumer Electronics Show at Las Vegas in the US, writes Brian Byrne.

The vehicle will replace the Tucson Fuel Cell variant of its best selling SUV, which has been used in a number of pilot applications, mainly in the US.

The new car is the production version of the FE Fuel Cell Concept shown at the Geneva Motor Show last year. It is expected to go on sale in a limited way, initially in parts of California. It is likely to be made available in some European markets where hydrogen filling facilities are already in place.

It joins the Toyota Mirai and the Honda Clarity Fuel Cell as fuel-cell cars actually on sale.
