Hyundai produces cars, minivans, trucks, buses, and other commercial vehicles. The company reestablished itself as Koreas leading carmaker in 1998 after acquiring a stake in Kia Motors. Hyundai formed a fuel cell task force at its research and development centre in Yongin, South Korea, in 2000. In October 2000 it unveiled its first prototype fuel cell vehicle (FCV), the Sante Fe Sports Utility Vehicle, only six months after it had signed an agreement with International Fuel Cells to supply the fuel cell power plant, a 75kW ambient pressure PEMFC. Fuelled by compressed hydrogen stored at up to 5,000psi in a Quantum Technologies hydrogen storage unit, the vehicle can go 400km on a single tank, a world-best for FCVs. The prototype was also rated above other FCVs in October 2001 at the Michelin Challenge Bibendum, a rolling showcase for alternative energy vehicles.
