OF A CLEAN ENVIRONMENT
- World’s first series-production
- Brand new eco-friendly technology
- Maximum safety
The ix35 Fuel Cell was awarded first place for 2013 Price Future Auto for being the first auto maker to successfully begin series production 2 years ahead of competitors.
The 4th generation of Fuel Cell vehicles has a maximum range of 594 km on a single tank of fuel. You will be surprised to know that it takes only 3 minutes to charge.
The ix35 Fuel Cell vehicle produces zero harmful tailpipe emissions. The only thing to come out of the tailpipe is water.
Hyundai aims to protect the global environment and lead the industry with
regenerative environmental technology. We started research and development in the
late 1990s to find an effective way to reduce air pollution caused by traffic, and we
developed fuel cell vehicles that produce only water, no toxic exhaust.
The environmentally friendly car market is projected to continue
growing based on high demand for green vehicles. Source: Nomura Research Institute
The steering wheel can be adjusted up and down, in and out until it’s exactly to your liking.
Everyone can have it their way when it comes to climate control.
The "E" mode offers low-cost fuel efficiency for normal driving. The "L" mode is a low-speed mode that enables the engine to react to high deceleration and brake like a conventional vehicle.
The fuel cell stack, electric motor, battery and hydrogen tank are the main components of the Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV), that is, ix35 Fuel Cell. When hydrogen stored in the tank enters the fuel cell stack, broken down into protons and electrons. The flow of electrons created in the fuel cell provides electricity, and the protons react with oxygen molecules from the air, generating heat and water. Electricity generated from the fuel cell is first transmitted to the inverter and then to the motor, which creates power that turns the wheel, making the vehicle move.
Step 1Hydrogen stored in the tank is supplied
to the fuel cell stack.
Step 2An inflow of air is supplied to
the fuel cell stack.
Step 3The reaction of air and hydrogen in
the fuel cell stack generates electricity
Step 4Generated electricity is supplied to
the electric motor.
Step 5Water is emitted.
The hydrogen tank of ix35 Fuel Cell stores the hydrogen for the vehicle.
Thanks to the 700-bar high pressure hydrogen tank, ix35 Fuel Cell has
an operating range of 594 km per charge.
ix35 Fuel Cell is equipped with a lightweight and compact lithium-polymer
battery with high output and efficiency. It temporarily stores a portion of the
electricity generated by the fuel cell stack. Electricity stored in the battery,
along with electricity generated from the stack, gives you an extra boost
Hydrogen and oxygen combine in the fuel cell stack to
produce electricity that powers ix35 Fuel Cell. Water is
the only byproduct of this reaction, making ix35 Fuel Cell
a truly zero-CO₂-emissions vehicle.
An electric drive motor, a powertrain connecting the
motor with wheels, converts electric energy supplied
through an inverter into mechanical torque. When
decelerating, the motor also converts mechanical
torque to electricity, which is then stored in the
battery. The reducer, playing the role of a gearshift,
amplifies torque by adjusting the motor’s rotational
speed, allowing efficient vehicle
operation on various terrains.
The inverter converts a high-voltage direct
current from the fuel cell stack to an
alternating current, which is supplied to
operate the electric motor. It also controls
rotation speed and torque.
In a comparison fire safety test conducted with internal combustion engine vehicles, it performed outstandingly: unlike the internal combustion engine vehicle, which lacks the high-pressure fuel tank and sensors, ix35 Fuel Cell averted explosion by sensing the fire’s heat and emitting hydrogen safely.
Fabricated from aluminum alloy and carbon composite, hydrogen tanks have passed numerous tests and verifications, including burst tests in pressures higher than working pressure, drop tests in accident scenarios and crash tests involving guns, to be certified as safe for mass production.
Crash tests were conducted for ix35 Fuel Cell in the same condition that the internal combustion engine vehicles were. In various collision simulations, e.g. front-end, rear-end and broadside, the car showed excellent safety performance by demonstrating mostly normal operation without damage to the hydrogen tank and without hydrogen leakage.
Crash Test : Based on FMVSS 301 fuel system stiffness evaluation and FMVSS 305EV & hybrid hydrogen vehicle crash test regulations.

Hydrogen stored in the tank and the atmosphere’s oxygen are supplied to the Fuel
Cell stack to generate electricity, which is then supplied to the motor to drive the car.
The hybrid batteries are charged by the fuel cell when
the battery charging level is low.
The electricity generated in the fuel cell stack is used together with electricity
stored in the high-voltage battery to boost output temporarily.
The kinetic energy of the car is converted back to electricity through
the motor to recharge the high-voltage battery.
