Hyundai wordt energiecentrale op wielen

Onderzoekers van de TU Delft zijn erin geslaagd om een stopcontact als elektriciteitsuitgang te ontwerpen en te installeren op de Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell, een elektrische auto die op waterstof rijdt. De onderzoekers hebben hiermee gezorgd dat de zero-emission Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell nu een energiecentrale op wielen is. Dit is een Europese primeur. Elektriciteit […]
