Hyundai Unveils H350 Fuel Cell Concept

Hyundai H350

Hyundai Motor has unveiled its H350 Fuel Cell. The powertrain study shows the potential for the company’s hydrogen fuel cell technology in the light commercial vehicle (LCV) segment.
The company says the vehicle’s 175-litre hydrogen tank can be filled in under four minutes, gives a total range of 422km, and emits only water.
The Fuel Cell driveline enables almost silent operation of the vehicle contributing also to a reduction in noise pollution that makes it especially suitable for night deliveries in urban areas.
With the Fuel Cell powertrain capable of producing up to 100kW and 300Nm, the H350 Fuel Cell Concept is able to reach speeds of up to 150Km/h.
The H350 Fuel Cell’s powertrain is formed of a hydrogen tank, fuel cell stack, high-voltage battery pack, inverter, and electric motor. The 700-bar high-pressure hydrogen tanks, located under the floor of the vehicle between the two axles, store 7.05kg of compressed hydrogen, which is then broken down into protons and electrons in the fuel cell stack. The electricity produced by the fuel stack is then stored in a compact 24kW lithium-polymer battery pack, with the inverter converting the energy to an alternating current to power the 100kW electric motor.
