English Español Hyundai car covers 778 km with a single charge of hydrogen

Bertrand Piccard sets a new world distance record for this kind of clean mobility.

Last update:

French aeronaut and president of the Solar Impulse Foundation Bertrand Piccard has broken the world record for the longest distance travelled in a hydrogen-powered vehicle on a single refueling.

Bertrand Piccard drove through two countries – France and Luxembourg – with a hydrogen car, a standard Hyundai Nexo.

“The battery is an ideal solution for short journeys, whereas hydrogen is better suited for long journeys. Indeed, the range a hydrogen vehicle can achieve is one of its main advantages over battery vehicles, as I have just demonstrated with this record,” said Piccard.

Never before has a production car powered by a hydrogen fuel cell covered so many kilometres on a single charge.
