November 2018, 2,477 km Innsbruck-Rotterdam and back. It was the second time from Austria to The Netherlands. Many more hydrogen refuelling stations opened in Germany now. Also passed through France and Switzerland. Hyundai ix35 FCEV, in its 5th year, continues to be a great hydrogen ride.
In June 2016, more than a dozen Hunydai ix35/Tucson FCEV started from Bergen (Norway), crossed the North Sea by ferry, passed Denmark, Germany and Austria to reach Italy in five days. Thanks to Hyundai Europe for sponsoring such a great adventure and thank you to the team drivers, organisers and supporters.
