Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell SUV At $16.86 Per Day For 36 Months

Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell vehicle with a range up to 300 miles will be offered for a 3 year lease with $2,999 down and $499 per month, including unlimited free hydrogen refueling and At Your Service Valet Maintenance at no extra cost.

Do the math: $2,999 plus $17,964 (36 X $499) = $20,963 minus $2,500 first year State rebate = $18,463 divided by 1095 days = $16.86 per day with no fuel or maintenance costs. The challenges are finding a refueling station and keeping your annual mileage under the 12,000 mile limit, typical with any leased vehicle.

Advantages include a driving range up to 300 miles based on internal testing, full refueling in similar time to gasoline, instantaneous electric motor torque of 221 lb-ft, no moving parts within the power-generating fuel cell stack, quieter EV operation, zero greenhouse-gas emissions and emits only water vapor. Customers interested in the Tucson Fuel Cell can indicate their interest at Hyundai, with availability beginning in Spring 2014 at several Southern California Hyundai dealers.
