Hyundai seems to pretty happy with themselves right now for having what appears to be one of the world's better fuel cell electric vehicles. The auto manufacturer achieved this status with its Tucson Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) by getting a perfect score this year's Challenge Bibendum held in Shanghai from November 14 to 17.
The Challenge Bibendum is put on by Michelin as a way to promote "sustainable road mobility." Vehicles rated in this competition are judged in the areas of noise, fuel efficiency, pollutants, and CO2 emissions, said Hyundai. Its Tucscon FCEV beat out other teams representing auto manufacturers Daimler AG, GM, and Nissan, among others.
Hyundai noted its Tucson is its second generation fuel cell electric vehicle. It is driven by a 80kW fuel stack and can get a max. speed of 150km/hr and a range of 350km. The auto maker is testing this vehicle in two fleets - one here in the United States and one in Korea.
