GERMANY: Hyundai delivers more fuel-cell vehicles in Europe
During October Hyundai Motor has delivered another 50 units of its ix35 Fuel Cell for distribution to customers across Europe.
This shipment, which Hyundai claims is Europe's largest ever delivery of hydrogen-powered cars, brings the total number of Hyundai fuel cell electric vehicles in Europe to over 250, more than those of every other manufacturer combined, it says. The cars will be supplied to a number of private and corporate customers who have chosen Hyundai's innovative hydrogen fuel cell car.
Thomas Schmid, chief operating officer at Hyundai Motor Europe, said: "This latest landmark delivery enhances our leading position in the roll-out of fuel cell vehicles in Europe. With our fuel cell distribution network growing to 13 European countries, we are enhancing our sales and customer service capabilities, making fuel cell electric vehicles more accessible for customers throughout Europe."
With the refuelling infrastructure in Europe continuing to grow, Hyundai will further expand its Fuel Cell distribution network. Hyundai Motor is the first manufacturer to train and equip its dealership staff across Europe in the servicing and repair of Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles, to ensure a consistent level of highly informed, high quality customer service.
