Safety Features

  • The comprehensive Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system kicks in to help give you more control when you need it most. The VSM links Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Motor-Driven Power Steering (MDPS) to help provide optimal stability, improve brake performance and acceleration or even increase steering power.
  • ESC helps compensate for over or understeering by predicting your intended path and applying just the right amount of braking force to individual wheels to help you maintain control.
  • ESC also includes a Traction Control System (TCS). When roads get slick, TCS activates to help reduce wheelspin and help give you the stable acceleration you need. So even when the weather gets bad, Traction Control will help give you commanding performance on the road.
  • Emergency braking can cause a vehicle’s wheels to lock up and skid, resulting in a loss of steering control right when you need it most. ABS helps prevent your wheels from locking up under hard braking. Instead, it rapidly pulses the brakes so you can steer safely to a stop.
  • The front airbags feature the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) which is designed to work with the three-point seatbelt system. The SRS deploys in certain frontal and/or side-impact conditions where significant injury is likely. The SRS is not a substitute for seatbelts, which should be worn at all times. The integrated Occupant Classification System (OCS) adjusts the force of deployment depending on the size of the front seat passenger. Should the front seat be unoccupied, the passenger airbag won’t activate at all, saving on future repair costs.
  • Despite all of the Tucson Fuel Cell’s advanced preventative safety features, sometimes accidents are just unavoidable. That’s why we’ve loaded the interior with dual front, side-impact and side-curtain airbags to help keep you and your passengers safe.
  • This feature gives you added confidence by minimizing vehicle roll back when starting from a stop on an incline.
  • In emergency braking situations, many drivers may not hit the brakes hard enough to achieve the shortest possible stopping distance. Brake Assist (BA) senses emergency braking and immediately applies the maximum braking force to help you stop in time.

  • What happens if I run out of fuel in the Tucson Fuel Cell?
    If the vehicle runs out of fuel, it will need to be towed on a flatbed to the nearest refueling station.
  • Are there any special maintenance requirements for the Tucson Fuel Cell?
    No, servicing the Tucson Fuel Cell is similar to the conventional vehicle. Typical items include servicing the brakes, replacing the cabin air filter, replacing the coolant, etc.
  • What impact does the Tucson Fuel Cell leave on the environment?
    The Tucson Fuel Cell does not emit any harmful greenhouse gas emissions such as carbon dioxide. Instead, water is the only emission.
  • How long has the fuel cell technology been around?
    Although fuel cells sound like a modern innovation, the first fuel cell was developed in the 1840s. NASA became the first to put fuel cells in use with the Gemini and Apollo spacecrafts, Skylab and the Space Shuttles. In the 1960s, auto companies began working with fuel cells in vehicles. Over the decades, fuel cells have become smaller, more powerful and longer lasting.
  • What other features help make the Tucson Fuel Cell more efficient?
    The Tucson Fuel Cell is equipped with a stop/start mode that shuts down the fuel cell stack and uses battery power when idling, minimizing energy loss in city driving. Additionally, the high-voltage battery is charged by the electric motor while braking, in Regeneration mode.
  • What makes Hyundai’s Tucson Fuel Cell different from others?
    Fuel cell technology is simple and there are many similarities among the various automakers’ fuel cell designs. The Hyundai fuel cell has one major difference compared to its competitors: The Hyundai fuel cell uses near ambient air pressure to provide oxygen to the fuel cell stack compared to fuel cell systems that use compressed air. Compressing air requires additional energy. Hyundai’s design results in low parasitic loss in the oxygen supply, which leads to high fuel efficiency and reduces power consumption by 50 percent. This setup also reduces noise in the cabin.
  • How safe is the Fuel Cell technology?
    Hyundai Fuel Cell vehicles have been subjected to extensive safety testing, including destructive and non-destructive evaluations at the component, system and vehicle level. There are many internal safety mechanisms to ensure the safety of the vehicle. All Hyundai vehicles complete a rigorous crash test program before they are ever driven on public roads. The Tucson Fuel Cell has undergone crash tests for offset-frontal, side and rear impact, as well as fire tests. Also, there are several impact sensors. In event of a crash, the sensors stop the release of hydrogen from the tanks.
  • How safe is hydrogen?
    Like any fuel, hydrogen requires proper handling and a safe system design for production, storage and usage. Hydrogen, if properly handled, is as safe as gasoline, diesel or natural gas—and in some instances even safer. For decades, hydrogen has been shipped and used safely in the United States for use in everything from welding to hydrogenated peanut butter. More than 70 million gallons of hydrogen are transported every year. Hydrogen is the most common element in the universe, and it’s also the lightest—even lighter than helium. This means that if there’s a leak in a storage tank, the hydrogen dissipates quickly into the air, without polluting.
  • Are the hydrogen storage tanks safe?
    Yes, the tanks are very safe. There have been no reported cases of catastrophic failure of a storage tank. If a leak occurs, there is almost no risk of explosion because hydrogen is lighter than air and rises immediately, minimizing the risk of explosion. If the Tucson Fuel Cell is stored in an enclosed space, four onboard hydrogen sensors are designed to detect leaks and sound an alarm.
