Intradouses two high pressure hydrogen storage tanks capable of holding hydrogen pressurized at 700 bar. The first tank is smaller and is located under the rear passenger bench, the second tank is larger and is hidden between the rear axles (just like theHyundai ix35 Fuel Cell, is hidden under the rear cargo bed).

The two tanks are smaller than those seen on board the hydrogen Hyundai ix35, in fact together they can hold 100 liters of hydrogen against the 144 liters of capacity of the ix35 FCEV. The 36 kW battery is located under the front seat floor.
