Hyundai's fuel cell SUV to debut in home market

SEOUL -- Hyundai Motor predicts that the age of mass-market fuel cell cars will begin in 2020, but it will start selling them in South Korea before then.

Hyundai Motor's fuel cell car

     The automaker expects to deliver 40 hydrogen-powered versions of its Tucson SUV in the country this year, mostly to local governments.

     Priced at 150 million won ($146,000), the car can travel 415km without refueling. It has a maximum speed of 160kph and goes from zero to 100kph in 12.5 seconds, according to the company.

     Hyundai has already supplied the car to the city of Copenhagen and other overseas customers from a factory in Ulsan. The company says it will cut parts costs and take other steps to ready the car for the general driving public.

     South Korea's government will lend a hand with building hydrogen fueling stations. The country has 11 now and will get two more this year. Plans call for having 200 in place by 2025.
