Hyundai has formally revealed its new fuel cell SUV, which carries the name Nexo. The Nexo is the company’s latest production-spec hydrogen fuel cell vehicle, which is appropriately bowing at the Consumer Electronics Show.
The stylish new SUV will serve as what Hyundai calls the company’s technology flagship. At the core of Nexo’s technology is an electric motor that generates 160 horsepower and 291 pound-feet of torque. The electric motor’s battery is charged by a hydrogen fuel cell with a H2 tank that will allow up to 370 miles of range.
The Nexo is Hyundai’s indirect replacement for the current Tucson FCEV, which offers only 265 miles of range.
Adding to the technology front is a host of new driver assistance technology Hyundai is debuting on the Nexo. These features include a new wide-angle camera on both sides of Nexo that provide the driver a view of blind spots in the gauge cluster. Nexo also has a new Lane Following Assist system and Highway Driving Assist; both features intended to automate some of the driving process with this fuel cell vehicle.
Nexo FCV will go on sale in select markets later this year. It is intended as one of 18 eco-friendly vehicles Hyundai plans to launch between now and 2025.
