Hyundai ix35 Refuels at London Hydrogen Station in Stratford

28 May 2012


On 9th May a Hyundai ix35 stopped for refuelling at the Air Products hydrogen station in Stratford, London. This was the first time a fuel cell car had filled up at the station, which has been providing fuel for the fleet of fuel cell buses currently running on route RV1 in the city. The station is operated by Air Products and this visit demonstrates these stations can be used to fuel a range of vehicles, whether fleet-owned or privately run.

Diana Raine, Air Products’ European Business Manager Hydrogen Energy Systems, said: “This fuelling demonstrates that our hydrogen fuelling technology is extremely flexible, and can fuel the average family-sized car as well as buses, presenting a wealth of opportunities for the future of low carbon transport in London.”

Tony Whitehorn, President and CEO of Hyundai Motor UK, added: “The Hyundai ix35 FCEV showcases our commitment to developing sustainable and clean alternative fuels for use in future models and we are delighted to be the first passenger car manufacturer to utilise Air Products’ hydrogen fuelling station at Stratford.”
