Hyundai India has announced that the company has commenced a feasibility study to bring in fuel cell electric vehicles (EVs) in the country.
“Progress for humanity with zero-emission mobility is our responsibility and vision to make a long term positive transformation for our future generations,” Hyundai Motor India Ltd (HMIL) Managing Director and CEO SS Kim said in a statement.
The company has initiated a feasibility study for fuel cell electric vehicles in the country and promises to be a solution with zero emissions, he added. Fuel cell electric vehicles are free from all kinds of greenhouse gas emissions. The company claims that the Kona EV delivers a range of 452 km in one single charge under standard testing conditions.
The parent firm Hyundai Motor had also recently announced plans to invest about 6.1 trillion won/ USD 51.81 billion between 2020 and 2025, with a third of the expenditure focused on electric and autonomous vehicles, but analysts want to see it deliver. The South Korean carmaker unveiled a “Strategy 2025” roadmap that envisages annual average spending of 10 trillion won, exceeding that of previous years, and up from a 2018 figure of 6.1 trillion won.
