Bucking trend, Hyundai bets on hydrogen fuel cell for new auto

Hydrogen cars to be cheaper than EVs by 2030 says Hyundai

The Nexo will be a technological showcase for the brand, which as well as featuring the futuristic hydrogen powertrain, will also have a number of so-called advanced driver assistance systems that expand its autonomous driving potential. NEXO has now taken over that position for Hyundai and has been created to impress.

The South Korean manufacturer used the 201 Consumer Electronics Show to debut its Nexo, a sport utility vehicle that uses voice commands, artificial intelligence and can be transformed into an autonomous auto. Acceleration and power have increased and the vehicle can be refuelled in five minutes.

The new fuel cell EV is the newest edition to the Hyundai's eco-vehicle portfolio and it will help to fulfill Hyundai's vision to offer clean mobility to the world.

Hyundai said it plans to sell the Nexo in California later this year, in a bet on hydrogen even as many rivals turn to battery power. But Nexo, the technology Trojan horse, well that perspective of the same vehicle packs in a slew of innovations sure to be found across amber fields and mountains majesty.


'Hydrogen energy is the key to building a more sustainable society. Nexo features a voice command system, artificial intelligence, and can be switched into an autonomous vehicle. Thus making the vehicle design lighter while giving the hydrogen fuel tank a more strategic layout.

What makes Nexo unique is that it sits on a dedicated platform touted to be more efficient and compact, as well as quieter in operation. However, Hyundai has said that its design allows for more passenger space, improved aerodynamics, acceleration, and efficiency. At full fuel Nexo Fuel Cell will be able to cover a distance of 595 km.

Like the Tucson FCEV, expect the new hydrogen fuel cell-powered Nexo to be available in select markets where hydrogen fuel refilling stations are available. Aside from California, the auto will most likely be available in South Korea, Australia, and a number of European countries. Let us know in the comment section below!
