South Korea is becoming the dominant player in the global effort to develop commercially viable renewable energy sources. The Asian country hopes to produce a minimum of 1000 units of hydrogen-powered vehicles, including the supporting infrastructures, by 2020.
Hyundai Motor Co. announced its plans to begin selling its first battery-powered electric car in 2016. Hyundai, South Korea’s main producer of fuel-cell vehicles, has been focusing on using engines that turn hydrogen into electricity as a result of markets imposing stricter emissions regulations.
Hyundai Motor Co. has released images of its seventh-generation 2015 Sonata, the most recent model of the vehicle since 2009. The sedan is set to compete against popular vehicles such as Honda Motor Co.’s Accord, Toyota Motor Corp.’s Camry and Ford Motor Co. (F)’s Fusion.
