Hyundai’s Tucson Fuel Cell has set the land speed record for a production hydrogen-powered SUV at the Soggy Dry Lake Bed of the California desert with a top speed of 94.6 mph.

The vehicle was able to handle the off-road terrain of the lake bed’s surrounding desert environment due to the substantial ground clearance of a compact SUV.

The Tucson Fuel Cell has an EPA-estimated driving range of 265 miles. When coupled with a refueling interval of a few short minutes, the range and refueling convenience of this fuel cell rivals many gasoline vehicles.

Southern California currently has the greatest concentration of hydrogen refueling stations in the U.S., and its hydrogen infrastructure in California is rapidly growing, with nearly 50 forecasted to be in operation in 2016.
