Kia looks to promote fuel cell electric vehicles in Germany

As part of its global activities in the development and promotion of fuel cell vehicles, Kia Motors intends to join the Clean Energy Partnership (CEP) in 2011.

The agreement between Kia Motors and members of the CEP will help to promote fuel cell electric vehicles across Germany and to showcase the company's competitiveness in eco-friendly vehicles.

The initial agreement was signed on February 24 in Seoul, attended by Dr Hyun Soon Lee, vice chairman and head of Hyundai-Kia R&D; Dr. Klaus Bonhoff, managing director of NOW GmbH (National Organization of Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology); Patrick Schnell, chairman of the CEP and other CEP members.

Dr Lee said: "By participating in the Clean Energy Partnership, Kia intends to generate further momentum in finding ways to better fuel cell technology and performance."
