Hyundai Motor UK has today officially handed over the ix35 Fuel Cell car, to global diversified mining business Anglo American – the world’s leading producer of platinum – which is a key ingredient in FCEV technology.
The handover took place at the brand new hydrogen refueling station at Sainsbury’s supermarket in Hendon, which is the latest Smart Fuel® Hydrogen Fuelling facility to be built within the UK by leading hydrogen supplier, Air Products. Headquartered in London, Anglo American will use its hydrogen-powered ix35 Fuel Cell for general business use and special events.
“As society adopts ever more challenging emissions targets, we expect the use of zero emissions Hydrogen Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles to increase significantly. We are actively supporting the development of this new technology, which will stimulate future demand for platinum, which is a key ingredient to this innovative vehicle technology,” Andrew Hinkly, Executive Head of Marketing, Anglo American Platinum.
Robin Hayles, Sustainable Fuel Development Manager, Hyundai UK, commented, “Anglo American is an important customer for Hyundai and one of the first outside of the hydrogen industry. The company understands the need to promote Fuel Cell as a viable alternative to internal combustion and increase the demand for this clean and sustainable technology.”
