HWASEONG, South Korea, March 11 (Reuters) – Hyundai Motor Co , South Korea’s champion of fuel-cell electric vehicles (EV), will answer calls for manufacturers to make more zero-emission cars by launching its first rechargeable battery-powered vehicle in 2016.

Hyundai, like Japanese rival Toyota Motor Corp, has long concentrated on fuel-cell vehicles powered by electricity generated using hydrogen, touting their longer driving range and shorter refill times.

But like Toyota, Hyundai is expanding its offering by also investing in battery-powered cars – the staple green offering of Hyundai affiliate Kia Motors Corp.
