Air Resources Board Chairman praises market debut of latest
hydrogen fuel cell vehicle

Hyundai Tucson becomes latest commercially available fuel cell
vehicle in California

Sacramento — A Tustin family today received the keys to the first
Hyundai Tucson hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle available for lease in
the United States. The fuel cell-powered Tucson was first
introduced at the Los Angeles Auto Show last November and uses
hydrogen to generate the electricity which powers the vehicle. 

These vehicles are an important part of California’s efforts to
reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
“Californians are known for our support of smart innovations, and
the Bush family’s decision to become the first Americans to drive
the Hyundai fuel cell vehicle as their family car fits squarely
within that proud tradition,” said Air Resources Board Chairman
Mary D. Nichols. “These ultra-clean vehicles play a critical role
in our efforts to clean the air and meet out climate goals. Fuel
cell cars are not vehicles of the future – they’re here now and
we applaud Hyundai for bringing them first to the market in
California where they are most needed.”
California’s Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) mandate will put 1.5
million ZEVs including hydrogen, plug-in hybrid and battery
electric vehicles on the state’s roads by 2025. Additionally,
California is part of an 8-state collaborative working to develop
and deploy consistent codes, signage and fueling infrastructure
for ZEVs on both the West and East Coasts. The collaborative
ultimately plans to put a minimum of 3.3 million ZEVs on the
roadways in the partner states by 2025.

California has also joined with businesses, non-governmental
organizations and other government agencies around the country in
the H2 USA collaboration to develop the foundation for
installation of hydrogen refueling technology nationwide. In
addition, California has earmarked $20 million annually to put
100 hydrogen fueling stations throughout the state.
