Hyundai started the deliveries of its Tucson Fuel Cell CUV in the United States as the first customer received the keys of its brand new zero-emission vehicle. Customers who want to drive the Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell CUV there is an attractive $499 lease rate with unlimited free hydrogen fuel as well as At Your Service Valet Maintenance at no extra cost.
Hyundai will initially offer the Tucson Fuel Cell to customers located in Los Angeles/Orange County region for a 36-month term at $499 per month, with $2,999 down. According to Hyundai, the Tucson Fuel Cell has a range of 265 miles (428 km), can be refueled in under 10 minutes and offers instantaneous electric motor torque.
Moreover, the cold weather has minimal effect on the Tucson Fuel Cell compared with battery electric vehicles. Hyundai started mass production of the Tucson Fuel Cell in April 2014 at the Ulsan, Korea assembly plant that also builds the petrol-powered Tucson.
“My family is certainly excited to be doing their part in driving a zero-emission vehicle that benefits the environment, and at the same time, reduces our nation’s dependence on imported fuels,” said Timothy Bush, the first Hyundai Fuel Cell customer. “What’s great about the Tucson CUV is that its day-to-day utility is virtually identical to the gasoline version, so we don’t have to compromise our lifestyle in the process; I can easily fit all of our family’s things in the back. The attractive $499 lease rate with unlimited free hydrogen fuel made the decision to drive a fuel cell even easier.” [source: Hyundai]
