Hyundai Tucson FCEV Drives 1,480 Miles In 24 Hours
Arnt-Gøran Hartvig and Marius Bornstein set in Germany a new record for distance traveled in 24 hours in a hydrogen fuel cell car.
They drove a Hyundai Tucson ix35 for a 1,480.73 miles (2,383 km) achieving an average of 61.7 mph (nearly 100 km/h) on public roads.
The two were driving 186 miles back and forth (sounds like real-world application…not) between Vatenfall’s hydrogen station in HafenCity, Hamburg, and a Shell hydrogen station in Sachsendamm, Berlin.
In June, their Hyundai Tucson FCV also set a record of 435 miles on a single refuel.
“We are at a transitional point of technology in the automotive industry. 2 Characters join forces to put to the test a Hydrogen fueled car and see how far they can go in 24hrs on public roads and in turn set a world first record.”
