Products supplied by HVCC on the Tucson compact crossover SUV include a centrifugal air compressor, coolant heater, high-voltage cooling module and positive temperature coefficient (PTC) heater, and an HVAC system with an electric compressor.

The innovative centrifugal air compressor provides clean pressurized air to the fuel cell stack, which generates power to propel and operate the vehicle. The air compressor features a high-speed brushless DC motor with a patented, oil-free and angular ball bearing design. This air compressor technology is a finalist for the 2014 Automotive News PACE Award in the product innovation category. Winners of this prestigious award will be named in April.

"HVCC has a longstanding and successful relationship with Hyundai, and we are very pleased to contribute our innovations on the first fuel cell vehicle in mass production," said YH Park, president and CEO of HVCC, a majority-owned subsidiary of Visteon Corporation.
