Hyundai has debuted the ix35 (Tucson) Fuel Cell in Australia. Along with giving Australia its first hydrogen vehicle, Hyundai is also unveiling a solar hydrogen refueler. The refueling station, located at Hyundai's Sydney headquarters, uses solar power to run the electrolyzer to make hydrogen from water onsite. Hyundai's Bill Thomas told 3AW that a future where most vehicles on the road are powered by hydrogen is "a way off. We're working on our next-generation fuel cell vehicle which we're hoping to bring out in 2018, but even at that stage, we're only talking in small numbers."

Brings Innovative Service to The Place at Terracina with Car2Go
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., March 31, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Cars are a costly investment. We can't all buy our own and we understand that life can get in the way of being financially stable enough to purchase one. Living expenses, bills and unexpected costs pop up all the time. Car 2 Go is making it easy to have access to a car no matter what life throws at you.
MC Companies is teaming up with Car2Go to bring this convenient service to The Place at Terracina. Car2Go now has six spaces for cars to be dropped off and picked up at the entrance of the community and this is the furthest North location that Car2Go has in the city. This provides residents, and people in the area, with shared vehicles to help them navigate through their days with ease.
"We are excited to have Car2Go on our property and can't wait to share it with our residents," says community manager Rachel Sypho.
If you haven't heard of Car2Go, they are a brilliant company that allows you to get from A to B in free cars that are parked around the city. You pick up the car, rent it and drop it off when you are done. The cars are fuel efficient, environmentally friendly and small in size which makes parking anywhere a breeze! You pay $0.41 per mile and you can earn free miles to your account by filling up the gas tank when it is less than ¼ full. The service is straightforward and painless; you can get registered on their website to receive your Car2Go card and then you can get driving.
"We want to create partnerships with companies like Car2Go in all of our regions to provide our residents with more opportunities to engage with the world around them," says Vice President of Marketing at MC Companies Eric Brown. "We know our residents will benefit from the Car2Go service and hope it helps them share the good life with others."
