Hydrogen aspirations gain ground with HTWO Guangzhou
Hyundai Motor Group designated the production and sales hub ‘HTWO Guangzhou’ in line with the name of its dedicated fuel cell system brand. HTWO stands for ‘H2’, the hydrogen molecule, whilst also representing ‘Hydrogen’ and ‘Humanity’, the main pillars of the Group’s fuel cell business.
Facilities, including a fuel cell system plant and an innovation center, will be built on the 207,000-square-meter site.
Building toward a sustainable hydrogen society
In 2018, Hyundai Motor Group announced plans to expand its supply capacity to 700,000 hydrogen fuel cell systems annually by 2030, under its mid- to long-term hydrogen roadmap ‘Fuel Cell Vision 2030’.
