Trade, Industry and Energy Minister Sung Yunmo (fifth from the left) visited the Changwon plant of Hyundai Rotem, on April 19, where it showcased a concept car of hydrogen-powered tram developed under the regulatory sandbox program.

 

Hydrogen trams are environment-friendly because they do not generate fine dust or harmful gases, and are considered economical next-generation urban transportation means in the future hydrogen economy because while they can be used for mass transportation, they do not require underground excavation work like subways.

 

The government will promote localization of core technologies for the development of hydrogen trams for exports starting this year.
