The Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell has set a new a land speed record for a production hydrogen-powered crossover.

The Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell has set a new a land speed record for a production hydrogen-powered crossover.

The record breaking attempt was conducted at the Soggy Dry Lake Bed in California last month and the model's unnamed driver was able to hit a top speed of 94.6 mph (152.2 km/h).

Hyundai didn't have much to say about the record setting feat but the Tucson Fuel Cell has a fuel cell stack that converts hydrogen into electricity to power an electric motor.  While it's not the fastest crossover on the planet, it's one of the greenest as it can travel up to 265 miles (426 km) on a single tank of hydrogen.

In the United States, the Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell is available exclusively in southern California.  Customers can lease the vehicle for three years for $499 per month with a down payment of $2,999.  That's not exactly pocket change but buyers receive unlimited complimentary hydrogen refueling as well as complimentary "At Your Service Valet Maintenance."

The crossover went on sale in California in June 2014 and Hyundai has sold approximately 100 units since then.  That's not a lot but U.S. owners have already logged more than 841,418 miles (1,354,131 km) of emissions free driving in the model.
