Tucson Fuel Cell Info
The Hyundai Tucson fuel cell lease puts you into a great vehicle that is on the cutting edge of clean driving technology. Hydrogen will be the future vision of mobility without greenhouse gases for the next few decades. Hyundai has now introduced the Tucson Fuel Cell, the first model with fuel cell, which will be built in series and customer can be leased.
It is simply this: Many people do not like to get used to be. Also, why sell yourself as cars powered by natural gas so slow: They refuels a little longer, they are slightly shorter runs between the tank operations, and consumption in kg is calculated in liters instead. The same problem is in future to take the fuel cell car.
It breaks down a very different and much thicker Gordian knot of alternative mobility. A fuel cell car is powered by an electric motor, and all-electric crawls and flies (the Tesla Model S times excluded) needs to do after 150 kilometers an electrical outlet. What hardly anyone wants to get used to.
However, the fuel cell car has exactly: a fuel cell on board, and that works like a small power plant. It produces electricity during the journey – from the oxygen in the ambient air and hydrogen in the tank. Exhaust? Pure water vapor.
In everyday life, the car is expected to create around 450 miles on a tank of fuel, which could at least knock down a hurdle getting used to. The consumption data in kilograms but will remain, because if you wanted to quench the thirst of a fuel cell car with liters, then you fell into the deepest of all getting used traps.
Hydrogen is extremely light, 14 times lighter than air. Hydrogen is the lightest of all elements at all in the whole universe, and until one has 5.6 kilos of this gas together, well 62,000 liters must flow. The standard consumption of the Tucson so is 10567.3 l/100 km, which is difficult to convey.
But the whole car has in this respect, maybe a little problem. Namely the one hand, it glorifies the manufacturer as a production model. On the other hand sheet was made to sell it.
Who asks about Markus Schrick, the CEO of Hyundai Germany, for the price it does not get really an answer. After all, we learn that the car is not to remain in customer hands, but is leased only to a maximum of four years, but the lease rate is not reported.
“If you want to drive the car only 10,000 kilometers in a year, for example, then Hyundai could use it even on the days on which it stands. That would make the lease payment cheaper,” says Schrick. Strange idea, but a fuel cell car is of course not just any car.
The combination of the small power plant (in the middle of the car), the hydrogen tanks (rear), the lithium-polymer batteries (in the middle) and the front built-in electric motor is tested at Hyundai since 1999 in different SUV models and buses been. 200 test vehicles have four million kilometers, it is hoped to further insights from everyday life.
One thing you can say after a short test drive: the Tucson Fuel Cell is completely unobtrusive. He does not look different, it offers inside the same space (except 15 liters deficit in the trunk all measurements are the same), and you start it with a key in the ignition.
He then also sound, because it’s not a battery-electric car, the fuel cell mutters quietly to himself. It sounds as if a further record two crossings a construction machine work – audible but not disturbing. Once in motion, penetrate more the sound of the running wind, and the tire inwardly, and this has a typical electric sense.
136 hp, the fuel cell engine is available, an additional 30 horsepower can be retrieved from the additional built-in battery. It is important not to leave during braking and coasting the kinetic energy fizzle, but to save (recuperation), which indeed hybrid cars and electric cars making.
The fuel cell car weighs more, it appeared about when driving also noticeable in the springs, and it is governed for consumption reasons, like many other electric car also.Because so beautiful unfolds the power when the bike as fast as electric motors have also fired their powder – the sovereign By accelerating the highest heights remains combustors reserved.
But who would complain about a fully usable compact SUV (even if only with front-wheel drive), which is afloat on the town, which can be fill up within three minutes, and that for only 9.50 € needs after 100 kilometers fuel?
Two tasks have to be solved before the entry into the hydrogen era. First, the chicken and egg problem: Someone has to build more hydrogen filling stations, currently there are only 15 in Germany, 50 in 2015 are planned.
Second, it would be nice if a car that you can buy or lease should also have a price. Otherwise, one has nothing to which one could get used to.
Hyundai shows the competition how it’s done
The Koreans grab the fuel cell in a proven model – and no longer offer it to only selected test drivers. Hyundai is the pioneer of technology.
Ironically, Hyundai takes on a pioneering role. But as the foray is not surprising. Since then develop their own models, risen in recent years in the group of leading international automobile manufacturers. Back in 1998, Hyundai decided a development program for green propulsion technologies. The Tucson Fuel Cell was conceived in the Korean Mabuk in a research organization that focuses on the development of fuel cell drives.
At first glance, the Tucson fuel cell from the conventional Tucson variants differ mainly by the prominent radiator grille. Otherwise, the compact SUV with the innovative drive technology requires neither the driver nor the passengers a familiarization. Everything is familiar, the instruments are clearly placed. Thanks to the space-saving mounted drive technology, the space front and rear differ not from the conventional Tucson. The five of it is, however, very closely.Would the electric motor powered by electricity from batteries in the Tucson, the car would have after 100 to 150 kilometers to the charging station. But as a Fuel-Cell-wheel drive version of the electric SUV until he has reached his maximum range of almost 600 kilometers. Then it takes just three minutes until the tanks are filled with hydrogen. With our coverage of the Hyundai is the leader in fuel cell vehicles. Only the Toyota FCHV-adv achieved with 790 kilometers to the Japanese test cycle, a better value.
The car is now an electric vehicle that has its own power plant for power generation on board. In the fuel cell, hydrogen is converted into electrical energy, with the addition of air. Waste product: water.Fuel cell vehicles are electric cars. The drive current but does not refer to the motor from a battery, but from a fuel cell: Here goes the oxyhydrogen reaction of hydrogen (H) and oxygen (O) to the exhaust product water (H2O) from controls. This electrical energy is released. The necessary hydrogen is stored in tanks.
The efficiency is 60 percent, the remaining energy is released as heat and can be used for heating.For the recovery of braking energy (recuperation) and as support during acceleration (“Boost”) have modern fuel cell cars is also a small storage battery. The hydrogen must be produced under expenditure of energy.
At 100 kilometers, the Tucson Fuel Cell consumes 0.94 kg of hydrogen; one kilograms H2 costs around eight euros. Saving of fuel at a pressure of 700 bar in two centrally placed high pressure tanks with a volume of 5.64 kg. The tanks were released only after extremely rigorous tests: You were dropped and shelled, for example. Should it come to a hydrogen leak, lock the appropriate valves tanks automatically.
The drive technology makes the Tucson Fuel Cell, however, by 300 kilograms heavier and reduces the load capacity in the luggage compartment of 15 liters. The regular Tucson holds 465 liters, folded down rear seat up to 1,436 liters.
Along the way, shows the electric SUV from its pleasant side. The extremely comfortable designed chassis ironed away many bumps in the asphalt. The fuel cell is no obvious advantage with a slight buzz. The input gear pulls the five-door without switching exchange confidently through everyday traffic. Where the vehicle is also grown in cold winters, also rides at minus 20 degrees Celsius are part of the test program.
At least 1,000 copies will produce in the next two years in Korea Hyundai. If the demand is also a higher number is also possible. However, as high lease rates will be, is silent Markus Schrick, CEO of Hyundai Motor Germany. “We put together so Customized packages for those interested that we can not call any general binding price,” says Schrick.
Prerequisite for a wider dissemination of fuel cell technology is an appropriate infrastructure and produced from sustainable sources of hydrogen. At present there are Germany, only 15 public hydrogen filling stations. The number is expected to rise, according to the initiative of the Clean Energy Partnership (CEP) in 2015 to 50 so as to at least be able to supply the metropolitan regions. In the CEP automobile manufacturers and energy companies are grouped together, working on the development of fuel models and the hydrogen technology.
A few days ago, Daimler, Linde, Air Liquide, have Shell , OMV and Total agreed by 2023 to ensure universal coverage with hydrogen – not only in the urban areas and on the main transport routes, but also in rural areas. For around 400 H2 filling stations throughout Germany were necessary, the companies announced. The first 100 stations to be completed by 2017. For around 350 million euros to be invested according to the calculations of the six partners.
While the competition still experimenting, Hyundai is building the first production car with fuel cell. From the Tucson Fuel Cell first 1000 units will be produced – BILD.de has tried the hydrogen-powered SUV.
The Koreans had set early. No hybrids, no pure electric vehicles. The now fourth largest carmaker (in conjunction with Kia) relies completely on the fuel cell as an alternative to gasoline and diesel engines. The first car to the Tucson Fuel (now) comes Cell in Germany on the road, even if at first only as a lease vehicle for fleet customers.
First impression: Only the large sticker that unusual filler neck at the tank and the other display in the cockpit indicate the Sauber man from whose exhaust evaporated water only. The basic vehicle Tucson has been upgraded to the eco-car in Korea from the series model.
The fuel cell in the Tucson Fuel Cell gives the electric motor at the front axle 136 hp. For this purpose, it invites use a lithium-polymer battery that delivers 30 hp more in the short term to the wheels. The power transmission takes over, as usual streamers, a one-step automatic. This ensures right from the start for the right swing. 100 kph is reached in 12.5 seconds. At 160 km / h (currently) is final.
Driving impression in everyday life: The Tucson drives are just like any other electricity also. Quiet, powerful, easy to master. The extra weight of the fuel cell and hydrogen tanks, one notices but when fully accelerated while driving. And the brakes when the car pushes a little more from behind.
The two major advantages of this technique compared to a conventional electric car are the deleted end of charging time and the much greater range.
• The maximum 5.64 kg hydrogen (700 bar) to be squeezed into just three minutes in the two tanks according to Hyundai. A normal electricity usually needs several hours to the power outlet to recharge the batteries.
• And instead of around 160 km (how many pure electricity) creates the fuel cell car with a tank charge (costs around 50 euros) for everyday use 594 km. A cold start in winter is even below zero outside cause no problems.
The largest Hinternisse for this technique are the missing service station network (in Germany there are only 30 hydrogen filling stations) as well as the price for the car. Hyundai Germany boss Marcus Schick: “How much the future lease customers need to pay for one of the pilot vehicles for up to four years, is subject to negotiation.”
