Hyundai Hydrogen Station 2In particular, the hydrogen filling station of Anseong Rest Area in Seoul, built by Hyundai Motors, is the first Hyundai Motors station to feature its own hydrogen filling station design and branding .

Through the design of the charging station, HMC has been able to effectively convey the image of hydrogen energy as a new energy source, emphasize environmentally friendly properties, and strive to bring the properties of light and clean hydrogen.

As a result, the charging station design is more compact and modern than the existing gas station or LPG gas filling station, and the clean and clean space image is completed through the unusual directing using the translucent outer wall .

In addition, Hyundai Motors plans to install a logo that utilizes the unique, stylish Hyundai automobile typeface and apply it to all the charging stations that Hyundai will build in the future, along with its unique charging station design, to strengthen its identity as a hydrogen filling station.

The hydrogen filling station of Anseong Rest Area (Seoul direction), which reflects the unique design and identity of Hyundai Motor, has a total capacity of 356㎡ and has a capacity of 25kg / h which can buffer more than 5 hydrogen electric vehicles per hour . It will be open until 10 pm.

At the same time, Hyundai Motors officially opened the hydrogen filling station of Yeongdong Expressway Yeoju Expressway (Gangneung Expressway), which was temporarily operated during the Pyeongchang Olympic Games.

In addition, Hyundai Motor has announced plans to open additional hydrogen filling stations at the following locations;
