Hyundai Looks Ahead with Latest Hydrogen Vehicle

Hyundai’s 2019 NEXO Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle Wins

Hyundai has revealed that its next-generation fuel cell electric vehicle will be called the Nexo and it will spearhead the Korean auto maker's efforts to introduce 18 eco-friendly cars to its lineup by 2025.

While extreme weather can be a stumbling block for fuel-cell-powered vehicles, the Nexo is capable of starting within 30 seconds after being exposed to temperatures of -29 degrees Celsius, and can cool itself when temperatures exceed 40 degrees Celsius.

The all-new Nexo is part of Hyundai's "Hydrogen Life Vision", which aims to integrate hydrogen as a home energy source.

The SUV is built on a dedicated fuel cell platform rather than a modified version of existing architecture. Acceleration is better than before, too - the Nexo goes from 0-60mph in 9.5 seconds, which is three seconds faster than its predecessor.

The key hurdle that the Nexo and other hydrogen vehicles, such as the Honda Clarity and Toyota Mirai, must overcome, though, is the lack of refuelling infrastructure.

Lane following assist automatically adjusts steering to keep the Nexo centered in its lane while driving at speeds of up to 90 miles per hour (mph). The automaker says fuel cells are ideal for self-driving cars as these require a massive amount of power to support the large amount of data communication as well as the operation of hardware such as sensors. It includes a blind spot monitor that displays both sides of the vehicle on the centre screen, at an angle simply impossible to see on conventional outside mirrors.

Hyundai's newest crossover hydrogen fuel cell-powered SUV is said to be an all-new platform equipped with the company's latest vehicle techs. The Tucson Fuel Cell is now offered at $499 per month on a 36-month lease (with $2,999 due up front), but this is only in a few select areas of California.

"NEXO embodies everything we have learned in five years of the Tucson fuel-cell vehicle", Ki-Sang Lee went on to say.

It is also equipped with state-of-the-art technologies for safe driving.

Hyundai also used the CES to present some hydrogen-powered applications for the home as well as a next-generation vehicle interface.
