Oil powered cars have had their fair share of popularity for a really long time, but slowly the trend of the automobile industry is shifting towards cleaner fuel. Amongst the alternatives, the most used means of power is electrical energy and many companies are even trying to go all green and switch from petrol or diesel to only battery power cars. Amongst these green energy sources, one name that is slowly gaining popularity is Fuel cell-powered cars.
Hyundai is planning to launch its fuel cell electric vehicle the Hyundai Nexo later this year. And according to the reports Hyundai has even received approval for the fuel cell vehicle from the Indian government.
