2015 Hyundai Tucson
Many years behind, there were rumors about a vehicle powered by hydrogen fuel cells. In that case, electric motors would generate electricity generated from hydrogen, and not land grids. Hyundai has presented their 2015 Tucson Fuel Cell at LA car show last year, and according what we’ve seen, fuel-cell electric vehicle is ready for production for next year as 2015 model. As additional, company set this car’s market appearance for summer of 2014 when all fans could purchase first models of this fuel-cell car. Main highlight is its 0 g/mile emission of CO2.
2015 Hyundai Tucson redesign
Design of the 2015 Hyundai Tucson won’t be changed from its predecessor. Only some details will be modified, but nothing significant. It is expected that company will update tech features inside the cabin. The hydrogen crossover will use grille and front fascia from European model ix35. Overall length of the SUV is 173.6 inches, while wheelbase is 103.9 inches. Head-room will be almost the same for both driver and passengers on rear seats with 39 inches respectively.
2015 Hyundai Tucson engine
Even this looks like revolution for car industry it is not like that. This kind of engines were sold in US, and now Tucson is ready to hit European market. However, we already saw ix35 Fuel Cell, so we expect improvements on that model. The base engine for 2015 Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell will be 2.4-l four-cylinder with a output of 182 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque. It will use front wheels for drive and power will be distributed through 6-speed auto transmission system. Also AWD will be optional for buyers. Performances of this vehicle will be very good, with travel distance of engine of 300 miles between two fills. This hydrogen-powered 2015 Tucson will refill in 10 minutes at hydrogen filling station.
There is still lack of these stations, but if this idea survives there will be more of them. Another lack is speed on the highway of the 2015 Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell, reaching 100 mph, while it accelerate fine through city streets. It sprints 0-60 in 12.5 seconds. Greatest achievement is Tucson’s 0 grams-per-mile CO2 emission.
