Drivers who are looking to reduce their carbon footprint from behind the wheel of their new Hyundai won't leave our dealership in Nashville, TN empty handed. The automaker's lineup gets eco-friendly with models like the 2013 Sonata Hybrid. Hyundai's range of green options will continue to grow, as the brand validates its unwavering commitment to the new hydrogen fuel powertrain and launching a fuel cell vehicle.

For readers who haven't caught up with the latest craze in the eco-auto world, fuel cell vehicles are a variant of an electric vehicle (EV) that produce electricity with hydrogen versus a battery's stored electricity. While the alternative power source promises the best available fuel efficiency, its infrastructure development has been slow to catch on in the U.S. However, Hyundai is a firm believer in the fuel cell movement and its future as an integral player in environmentally-conscious vehicle technologies.

Such faith has driven Hyundai's dedication to the development of hydrogen fuel cell technology. Its work has paid off with Hyundai claiming the title of first automaker to begin assembly-line production of fuel cell vehicles. Currently, one of the brand's vehicles equipped with the alternative powertrain has already launched in Europe. Next on the agenda is a fuel cell version of its popular Hyundai Tucson.

Despite the obstacles of a refueling infrastructure and cost to produce, we are sure Hyundai will continue making leaps and strides in the field of fuel cells. Just the same, we have no doubts that the alternative power source is the future of our lineup and are excited to observe continued advancements to achieve the ultimate fuel efficiency.
