While we've been out here raving about electric cars, Hyundai has been working on some new hotness: a hydrogen-powered SUV. The Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell is set to debut on Southern California roads next year. Hyundai will lease the hydrogen cars in the region, which has nine of the countries ten hydrogen refueling stations, for $599 a month
