2016 Hyundai Tucson / IX35 gets ready for Geneva debut

Peter Schreyer, President and Chief Design Officer at Hyundai Motor Group, remarked that the all-new Tucson is provided with a design that delivers a bold and athletic presence, as made possible by its bold proportions, flowing surfaces, sharp lines and the newest generation signature hexagonal grille.

Hyundai designed the all-new Tucson to feature the strong proportions and profile of a sport utility vehicle. Overall, the design of the new Tucson lends a new sense of sleekness and agility. As expected, the front end of the new Tucson is marked by the Hyundai signature hexagonal front grille, as linked to the LED. The front bumper, which incorporates the LED daytime running lights, has been given a wing-shaped appearance, thereby providing a visual reference for the vehicle’s wide track.

The new Tucson now features a sleeker profile, as accentuated by the A-pillar that has been moved back to become visually disconnected from the long bonnet. The wheel arches are given a new directional shape that lends the Tucson an agile yet dynamic look. Just above the rear wheel arches is the 'Z' character-line that gives the vehicle a sculptural side profile. Featuring a clean design, the rear end of the Tucson is laden with horizontal lines flowing from the rear wheel arches, as accented by slim tail lights.

2014 Hyundai IX35 Fuel Cell breaks the record for longest journey on a single tank of hydrogen

Back in June, Hyundai delivered the first Tucson Fuel Cell in the United States and after just one month, the Korean manufacturer announced that its new CUV was driven for a record distance for a hydrogen-powered production vehicle on a single tank. Hyundai used an ix35 Fuel Cell to travel from Oslo to Malmo, a distance of 700 km or 435 miles.

According to the official press release, the economy drive was conducted by independent Norwegian non-profit eco-pioneers Marius Bornstein and Arnt G. Hartvig. The 700 km journey took 10 hours to complete and the CUV was driven at an average speed of 76 km/h (47 mph) in city and on highway.

For those who don’t know, Hyundai said that the ix35/Tucson Fuel Cell has a range of 594 km (369 mph) but it seems that the CUV is more fuel-efficient. The carmaker said that when the trip was ended the trip computer was still indicating nearly 10 km (6 miles) of range.

Hyundai apologizes for ix35 ad depicting a failed suicide attempt

Hyundai Motor Co. issued an apology for a commercial spot created by Innocean Europe showing a failed suicide attempt with a Hyundai ix35 crossover. Innocean, owned by Hyundai Motor Group Chairman Chung Mong-koo and his daughter, created a commercial spot for use in the United Kingdom that depicts a man trying to commit suicide in his Hyundai ix35, the European version of the Hyundai Tucson sold in the United States.

The man failed since the crossover did not produce any harmful emissions. According to Hyundai, it did not request or approve the ad, and has removed the video from YouTube after it received heavy criticism on social media.

In one of the statements it released, Hyundai said it “deeply and sincerely apologizes for the offensive viral ad.” The South Korean carmaker said the ad runs counter to their values as a company and as members of the community. It said that it was very sorry for any offense or distress caused by the video. Hyundai offered apologies to those who have been “personally impacted by tragedy.”

Hyundai IX35 Facelift previews the 2014 Tucson

As shown at the Geneva Motor Show, the 2013 European-spec Hyundai ix35 crossover model features several upgrades when it comes to hardware and content. This compact crossover is closely linked to the U.S.-spec Tucson so it’s believed that Euro-market ix35 will preview several changes that the 2014 Tucson may receive.

At first glance, it appears that the modifications on the Euro-spec ix35 are subtle. But it’s a pleasant surprise to know that it features LED lighting in the form of front driving lights and rear taillights. Meanwhile, the ix35 will be powered by a direct-injected 2.0-liter engine that’s more fuel-efficient.

This also marks the first time for the diesel model (which isn’t expected to be offered in the U.S.) to be available with an optional six-speed automatic. Just the base-model Tucson gets a 2.0-liter engine in the U.S. market. This means that there’s room for either a U.S. Tucson with a downsized engine or Hyundai’s 2.4-liter Theta II GDI four-cylinder as featured in the Santa Fe Sport and Sonata.

After one photo, the 2013 Hyundai IX35 Facelift was finally presented at the Geneva Motor Show. According to the official info, the new model promises to offer a range of technological enhancements, which makes it even more appealing. For those who don’t know, the first Hyundai IX35 made its debut back in March 2010 and since them, the Korean manufacturer sold more than 220,000 units of the C-segment SUV vehicle in Europe. For the 2013MY, the Hyundai IX35 Facelift offers further refinement, enhancing the driving experience. One of the most significant upgrades for the 2013 IX35 Facelift will be the replacement of the the 2,0-litre ‘Theta II’ gasoline engine with a new, super-efficient ‘Nu’ 2,0-litre GDI (Gasoline Direct Injection) engine.

This new engine was developed in-house at Hyundai’s European R&D centre in Rüsselsheim, Germany, and offers 166 hp and 205 Nm of torque (20,9 kg/m). Two strong engines benefit from the fitment of a new low-pressure exhaust gas recirculation (LP EGR) system, yielding significant efficiency gains across the range. Furthermore, the 2013 Hyundai IX35 Facelift comes with the Flex Steer system. Three driving modes are available: normal, comfort and sport. These driving modes allow the driver to vary the level of steering support and feedback to best suit the environment.

Inside the cabin of New ix35, the seats and upper door trims are now finished in higher-quality materials, the dashboard air vents are ringed in chrome, the front cup holders are illuminated and the windscreen receives a shade band, completing the visual refreshment. The interior offers further enhancements such as the heated steering wheel, front parking sensors and a trailer-towing safety function for the ESC (electronic stability control).

Hyundai’s manufacturing facility in Ulsan has built a white Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell vehicle – marking the start of assembly-line production of zero-emissions, hydrogen-powered vehicles for fleet use. This makes Hyundai the first automaker in the world to have assembly-line production for this type of vehicle. Hyundai Motor Company’s Plant No. 5 rolled out the ix35 Fuel Cell vehicle, which is based on the brand’s ix35, C-segment SUV, at a launch event.

Hyundai intends to produce 1,000 ix35 Fuel Cell vehicles by 2015 to be leased to public and private fleets, located mainly in Europe, where the European Union has set up a hydrogen road map and has started building hydrogen fueling stations. Hyundai will start to make hydrogen fuel cell vehicles for consumer retail sales by 2015, with reduced auto production costs and the additional development of hydrogen infrastructure.

Hydrogen powers Hyundai’s ix35 Fuel Cell, which was built using proprietary technology. Hydrogen is converted into electricity with the use of a fuel cell stack. This will then run the car’s motor.

Hyundai Motor Co. said that by December of this year, it will already start production of the hydrogen ix35 Fuel Cell vehicle for public and private lease.

Hyundai has already signed contracts with cities in Denmark and Sweden to lease the ix35 Fuel Cell to municipal fleets. Hyundai is planning to have a limited mass production of the ix35 Fuel Cell beyond 2015, with a target of 10,000 units. Hydrogen powers Hyundai’s ix35 Fuel Cell. The hydrogen is converted into electricity by a fuel cell stack.

As a result, the Lithium Polymer battery is charged, powering the electric motor. Water vapour is the only emission produced by the ix35 Fuel Cell. The halo vehicle of Hyundai’s Blue Drive sub-brand is the ix35 Fuel Cell.
