Hyundai has launched a separate brand to represent the group’s hydrogen fuel cell system, HTWO.
The brand will build on the firm’s 20 years of experience in such technology and aims to help growth the firm’s fuel cell business and “ecosystem” for hydrogen.
The vehicle manufacturer hopes to develop the next generation of hydrogen fuel cells for various forms of transportation, including automobiles, vessels, and trains.
Through strategic partnerships with hydrogen, energy and logistics companies, Hyundai has expanded its fuel cell system business, accelerating development of hydrogen, and laying the foundation for the new HTWO brand, which will initially focus on several major regions – Korea, the United States, Europe and China.
Hyundai launched the ix35 hydrogen fuel cell car in 2013 and expanded its vehicle range to include an SUV, a truck, and a fuel cell electric bus.
Hyundai is also a steering member of the Hydrogen Council, a global coalition of energy, transportation and industry companies with a shared vision and long-term ambition for hydrogen.
