TfL bus team’s Hyundai electrics
TfL’s bus operational management team has received two Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell electric cars. The two vehicles are powered by hydrogen and emit zero emissions. They are for use in undertaking a number of tasks including checking bus route diversions and carrying out site meetings. Their fuel cell stack converts hydrogen into electricity to drive the motor and only water vapour is emitted during driving. Refuelling takes a matter of minutes and the vehicles have a range of up to 370 miles. The two vehicles have been purchased by London’s transport authority as part of the HyTEC project which aims to create three new European hydrogen passenger vehicle deployment centres in London, Copenhagen and Oslo.
