may be delaying the release of their hybrid
and fuel cells
vehicles. An unnamed Hyundai official told Reuters
that Hyundai will mass-produce a Hybrid Elantra
through its Kia
unit in 2010 and mass produce a fuel cell vehicle starting in 2012 (2015 at the latest). Recently, we reported Hyundai would produce hybrids in 2008, and 2009
and have fuel cell volume sales by 2010
and begin mass sales in 2015. Volume, mass production, and release dates are squishy numbers (companies often say 2007-2008 release for example) so technically, there might not actually be a delay. The new, slightly-further-out release targets for the Hyundai hybrids and fuel cells have us little worried though.
