Today only 3,000 hydrogen vehicles are in circulation in South Korea. But the country intends to accelerate. The government has just presented a development plan for 67,000 vehicles by 2022 and 850,000 over the next 10 years.
To support this deployment, the Ministry of Industry has announced the installation of 310 fueling stations in the country by 2022, including 250 across cities and 60 across motorways. 86 hydrogen stations are expected to be operational by the end of this year, according to the ministry.
Earlier this month, the government unveiled a plan to have electric and hydrogen cars make up 33 percent of all automobiles here by 2030, with an increase of 2.6 percent projected for this year.
