Hyundai and Shell Partner for Hydrogen Infrastructure Development

Hyundai Celebrates National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day with Commitment to Supporting Hydrogen-Powered Fuel Cell Vehicle Sales Growth

Freehold Hyundai is proud to announce that Hyundai Motor North America has joined forces with Shell to encourage growth of the hydrogen refueling infrastructure. The agreement between the energy giant and Hyundai is called 'Project Neptune' and supports Shell's construction of 48 new hydrogen refueling stations as well as upgrading two more in California.

As part of the agreement, Hyundai has agreed to commit to growing fuel cell vehicle sales in order to supply demand for Shell's expanding hydrogen infrastructure. Currently, Hyundai offers the 2021 NEXO Fuel Cell as the world's only fuel-cell SUV. It is the first dedicated hydrogen-powered SUV, with an estimated range of 380 miles. Refueling with hydrogen is as fast and easy as pumping gas. In 5 minutes or less of refueling, you have the highest range of any fuel cell vehicle on the planet. Enough to drive from L.A. to San Francisco nonstop.

"We're proud to join Shell Hydrogen's 'Project Neptune', expanding California's hydrogen infrastructure to meet increasing consumer demand for clean, zero-emission transportation solutions. Hyundai offers a superb fuel cell vehicle in its NEXO SUV, and this effort will help ensure that every eco-focused fuel cell driver has convenient refueling options wherever they choose to go," said Olabisi Boyle, vice president of Product Planning and Mobility Strategy, Hyundai Motor North America.

Hyundai and Shell's efforts are based on increasing public awareness of hydrogen fuel vehicles and the positive effect they have on the environment. Currently, these vehicles are available to California dealerships. Continued efforts to promote fuel cell efficiency and affordability are aimed at bringing these vehicles to dealerships nationwide and the supporting infrastructure needed to fuel these vehicles will be integral to their success.

Freehold Hyundai is excited about the new clean enrgy initiatives that Hyundai Motors is spearheading to bring the transportation industry into the 21st century with responsible, clean alternatives to provide for the public's automotive needs while caring for the environment.
