On August 29th 2014, the Institute for Innovative Technologies – IIT Bolzano held the handover event of 10 Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs) to the first customers in South Tyrol. Thanks to the HyFIVE Project, private and business customers have now the opportunity to drive a FCEV through different rental options.
“It was a pleasure to drive a fuel cell electric vehicle” said Fabio Da Col, Sales Manager of the Bolzano Fair, after the first drive. “The low noise level of the electric motor and the comfort, together with the acceleration performance, give an excellent driving experience. I am confident that the new hydrogen technology will progressively advance alongside the existing technology, offering a real alternative to present and future drivers. For this reason, Bolzano Fair is committed to organize Klimamobility, the fair for sustainable mobility, and to promote test drives with low and/or zero emission vehicles that improve our quality of life.”
