Hyundai Canada has announced that its first Hyundai Tucson FCEV in Ontario was delivered on March 10th to Joseph Cargnelli, the co-founder of Hydrogenics Corporation, a global engineering leader that specializes in technologies to speed up the transition to alternative mobility solutions.
“I am extremely proud to be Hyundai’s first customer in Ontario to take delivery of a fuel cell vehicle,” said Cargnelli. “Hydrogen-powered fuel cell technology has the incredible potential to revolutionize our world by delivering clean energy to meet our every need; this is especially true when it comes to transportation. By offering the Tucson Fuel Cell to customers, Hyundai is taking a significant step toward a brighter and cleaner automotive future; I have been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to drive my new fuel cell vehicle and showcase this technology every day.”
Hyundai became the first automaker to offer a fuel cell vehicle in Canada back in February 2015 with the launch of six Tucson FCEVs in the Vancouver area. It’s only a matter of time before other hydrogen-powered vehicles start roaming the streets of Canada. That and a driver-friendly refueling infrastructure, of course.
