Hyundai Motor Group has announced that it is supporting hydrogen as a top energy solution for sustainability by providing a hydrogen fuel cell version for all its commercial vehicles by 2028.

With its new fuel cell system that it plans to launch in the next few years, the South Korean automaker announced its strategy for the future of hydrogen on Tuesday during a live stream of the automaker’s Hydrogen Wave conference.

Executive vice president and head of the fuel cell center at Hyundai Motor Group, Saehoon Kim, said that Hyundai’s goal is to also attain cost competitiveness equivalent to that of EV batteries by 2030.

Hyundai also shared details about its high-performance, rear-wheel-drive hydrogen sports car, the Vision FK, with a 500kW fuel cell system that can push it from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in under four seconds and has 600 kilometers (373 miles) of range. Hyundai did not share when the vehicle would go into production.

Most automakers have begun to embrace electric vehicles for both passenger and commercial use. Eventually, Toyota Motor Corp, BMW, and Daimler have all begun embracing hydrogen fuel cell technology to a varying degree, even as they continue to develop exclusively electric vehicles.

At the event, Hyundai stated that its commitment to hydrogen doesn't deter from its commitment to electricity.

Kim also announced Hyundai’s plans to launch two new hydrogen fuel cell powertrains in 2023, which the company hopes will help make hydrogen mainstream by 2040. The third generation of Hyundai’s hydrogen fuel stack is expected to come in either 100 kW or 200kW outputs for either passenger cars or commercial vehicles, respectively.
