Hyundai Tucson Fuell Cell, known in Europe as Hyundai ix35 Fuell Cell, set a land speed record for production hydrogen-­powered SUV in the California desert.


At the Soggy Dry Lake Bed of the California desert, Hyundai Tucson Fuell Cell drove with a top speed of 94.6 mph (152.2 km/h). Being an SUV, it was also able to easily traverse the off-road terrain of the lake's surroundings.

Currently there are nearly 100 fuel cell Tucsons on the roads of Southern California. The region also has the greatest concentration of hydrogen refueling stations in the United States. Its hydrogen infrastructure is growing rapidly and by the end of the year, it is expected to have 50 fully operational stations in place.
