Hyundai reveals Nexo hydrogen fuel cell SUV

Hyundai claims its latest fuel cell vehicle (FCV), the Nexo FUV (future utility vehicle), launched this week at the CES show in Las Vegas, has world-best FCV efficiency and a 370 mile range - 40% or 105 miles more than its predecessor.

Currently, more carmakers are focussing on developing more electric vehicles but it doesn't mean EVs are the ideal replacement for gasoline and diesel.

Hyundai's newest crossover hydrogen fuel cell-powered SUV is said to be an all-new platform equipped with the company's latest auto techs. Hyundai believes that hydrogen fuel is...

Performance is still pretty average for the Nexo but this is still a good sign because it implies that FCEV is nearing a big volume push in the automotive industry.

Unlike the Tucson FCV launched five years ago, the Nexo is built with a dedicated vehicle architecture for lighter weight, improved power-to-weight ratio, faster acceleration from 0 to 60 miles per hour than the Tucson, more cabin space, battery relocation to the boot and an improved fuel cell system layout. Nexo features a voice command system, artificial intelligence, and can be switched into an autonomous auto.

The SUV is built on a dedicated fuel cell platform rather than a modified version of existing architecture. Thus making the auto design lighter while giving the hydrogen fuel tank a more strategic layout. In the NEXO, the powertrain is smaller than the one in the Tucson. It would be interesting to see the response of the competitors to this distinguished move by Hyundai.

Nexo, the fuel cell vehicle, offers up a futuristic look at mobility - but with limited availability thanks to the slow distribution of charging stations.

According to the South Korean automaker, Nexo will spearhead their plans to develop low-emission vehicles in line with their goal of introducing 18 eco-friendly models by 2025.

We only know that the 1st market will be American.
