Society needs to look at global shipping and trade, too.
That’s what HTwo aims to accomplish as Hyundai develops the powertrain architecture for numerous types of transportation. Enhanced energy density and affordability are at the forefront of its development. As progress chugs along, Hyundai said it plans to strengthen ties with current partners in the US, Europe, China and Korea to help find places where HTwo makes sense.
And while it works on an affordable hydrogen powertrain, the company willwith flying taxis. Such vehicles may also house an HTwo powertrain, if Hyundai has its way. I just hope if hydrogen-powered trucks and trains come to life, they look at lot like the company’s .
