Capitol Hyundai of San Jose, Calif. – a member of the Del Grande Dealer Group – has delivered the first zero-emissions Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell hydrogen electric vehicle in the northern California region today.
According to Capitol Hyundai, it is the fifth qualified dealer for Hyundai’s Tucson Fuel Cell and the first Hyundai fuel cell dealer in northern California.
“Capitol Hyundai is excited to be a qualified dealer for Hyundai’s zero-emissions Tucson Fuel Cell hydrogen electric vehicle,” says Shaun Del Grande, owner of Capitol Hyundai/Del Grande Dealer Group. “Our location in the Bay Area region is Hyundai’s first in northern California, making it more convenient for local residents to conveniently acquire their new Tucson Fuel Cell CUV, helping reduce greenhouse-gas emissions where they work and live.”
Since its launch in June 2014, Tucson Fuel Cell drivers have accumulated more than one million zero-emission miles on the streets of California. This accumulated mileage has helped improve air quality in the region by more than 400 tons of CO2 emissions when compared with the emissions from a similar internal-combustion-powered CUV.
Hyundai says it has delivered more than 100 Tucson Fuel Cells since its introduction as the first mass-produced fuel cell vehicle in the U.S. market.
Capitol Hyundai joins the four other existing qualified fuel cell dealers in both southern and northern California, including Keyes Hyundai, Tustin Hyundai, Win Hyundai in Carson and Hardin Hyundai in Anaheim.
