Hyundai Helps Develop Hydrogen Infrastructure in California

Anyone who stays up to date with the latest Hyundai news, like that found here on the Walser Hyundai blog is likely aware that Hyundai is making great efforts in the realm of hydrogen fuel cell technology development.

In fact, the South Korean automaker is one of the first to put out a production-version of a hydrogen fuel cell-powered auto which, under more American nomenclature could be headed for the U.S., even soon.

So with this new type of technology imminent here in the states, we can't help but wonder: what can we do, as a nation, to facilitate the use of this ideal, zero-emissions, zero-gas-using type of transportation.

Well, it seems the state of California is working to spruce up its hydrogen infrastructure and Hyundai is lending a hand. The station, which is located in San Bernardino County, is more specifically located at the Hyundai America Technical Center. There are plans for the facility to be open to the public in October 2014, after a series of upgrades including a $3-million grant from the California Energy Commission.

Hyundai has a goal in place to build 1,000 fuel-cell vehicles by 2015 and is on course to prove how much more energy-efficient they will be than even battery-electric vehicles.
