Hyundai’s Eco-friendly Vehicle Development Program and Its All-new FCEV NEXO
With hydrogen society being a big theme of Hyundai’s participation in CES ASIA 2018, Hyundai displayed an array of fuel cell technologies including NEXO.
Hyundai, the world’s first company to commercialize fuel cell electric vehicles in 2013 with Tucson Fuel Cell, launched the next generation fuel cell electric vehicle NEXO in March 2018.
The Hyundai fuel cell vehicle NEXO, dubbed as an ‘ultimate Future Utility Vehicle’, is a technological flagship of Hyundai’s ever-growing eco-vehicle lineup. NEXO represents the culmination of the company’s advanced fuel cell technology, and will bring the future of mobility to today’s drivers.
NEXO is rooted in Hyundai’s development philosophy of optimal efficiency with zero sacrifice in driving performance. NEXO’s eco-friendly powertrain boasts an ability to optimize hydrogen utilization and component efficiency. This in turn leads to the world’s best fuel cell system efficiency at 60 percent. With the help of highly advanced fuel cell technology and efficient electric motor technology, NEXO successfully solves the FCEV’s chronic problem of fuel economy loss.
Another industry first is the filtering and purifying of the air while driving. Remarkably, as air filters through NEXO, 99.9% of its fine dust is purified. Therefore, just by driving NEXO, a legitimate zero-emission vehicle, and drivers can make significant contributions to the environment.
During CES ASIA 2018, Hyundai will introduce the ‘Fuel Cell House’, in which visitors will see Hyundai’s energy control, home gardening, and air purification system using its technology. In addition, Hyundai will also showcase the fine dust purification performance utilized by NEXO.
