AC Transit to Use Hyundai Fuel Cell Vehicles

For a five-year demonstration and validation project designed to evaluate fuel cell vehicles and hydrogen infrastructure technologies, Hyundai delivered the first of 10 fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV) to the Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District (AC Transit), a California public transport group.

“Hyundai’s partnership with AC Transit represents the first time that a third-party has been involved in our fuel cell vehicle research, and it marks another milestone in our effort to bring this technology to commercialization,” explains Dr. Won Suk Cho, president, Hyundai America Technical Center, which is responsible for alternative fuel research in the U.S. “Our vehicles will be operating in real-world working environments every day proving the viability of this technology,” he added. This year Chevron opened its first-ever hydrogen energy station at the Hyundai America Technical Center (HATCI) in Chino, California. In addition to HATCI and AC Transit, transport fleets will also be placed at Southern California Edison and U.S. Army facilities in Detroit to develop and implement a practical, business-based hydrogen energy infrastructure and associated technologies. AC Transit has been named “National Clean Bus Leader” for its advanced environmental technology initiatives.
