Hyundai has established a new world record for a hydrogen vehicle after the ix35 Fuel Cell covered a whopping 2,383 km in just one day.

More than a year ago, the model took down the record for the longest journey on a single tank of fuel in a hydrogen production car after covering 435 miles (700 km). Now, an identical vehicle did 2,383 km (1,480 miles) in 24 hours and it was driven almost non-stop, with only a few short breaks for refueling. You would be tempted to say the two drivers were very easy with the acceleration pedal, but that wasn't the case as they averaged almost 62 miles (100 km/h).

The route - which they repeated for almost 8 times - was more than 300 km long between Vatenfall's hydrogen station in HafenCity, Hamburg and a Shell hydrogen station in Sachsendamm, Berlin. The two drivers, Arnt-Gøran Hartvig (sports scientist) and Marius Bornstein (master of physics) didn't spend much time at the hydrogen station as refueling the ix35 Fuel Cell takes a mere three minutes.

We remind you the "world's first mass produced fuel cell electric vehicle" has a 136 PS (100 kW) electric motor working together with a 24 kWh lithium-ion polymer battery to grant a top speed of 100 mph (160 km/h) and an almost 600-km range.
