Fuel Cell Generator by Hyundai’s HTWO Brand to Power World’s First Electric Touring Car Racing Category

Hyundai Motor announced today that its dedicated world-leading hydrogen fuel cell system brand, HTWO, will make its motorsports debut, providing its fuel cell generator to the ETCR (Electric Touring Car Racing) category. ETCR is the world’s first all-electric touring car race category that provides leading vehicle manufacturers a global stage to showcase electric technology in a high-performance arena. Only vehicles without internal combustion engines are allowed to participate.

Hyundai Motor is providing a mobile charging infrastructure that uses HTWO’s proprietary fuel cell generator to charge all participating high-performance EVs. The charging system can generate up to 160kW of electricity, boasting an output equivalent to twice that of the NEXO, Hyundai Motor Company’s fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV). The system can fully charge two ETCR vehicles—each equipped with a 65kWh battery—simultaneously within an hour.

ETCR will not only serve as a high-performance vehicle testbed for the Group to advance its electrification products but will also provide new business and market expansion opportunities for HTWO’s power generation technology.
