Hyundai showcases hydrogen future with SUV preview

Hyundai has unveiled its next generation fuel cell vehicle, well ahead of the hydrogen-powered SUV’s official launch early next year.

The near-production-ready version is yet-to-be-named but Hyundai says it demonstrates the brand’s commitment to a new era for advanced eco-friendly vehicle development. 

It will be the second commercially produced hydrogen model from the brand and uses the Hyundai’s fourth generation of hydrogen fuel cell technology.

The new vehicle promises enhanced fuel economy, thanks to improved fuel cell performance, which should result in a range of 500miles..

Performance is also improved with the new SUV boasting 163PS of power.

The next generation hydrogen vehicle makes significant improvements in tank storage density. The tank package now features three equally-sized tanks, as opposed to two of different sizes. 

Advanced driver assistance technologies will also feature in Hyundai’s hydrogen-powered range. The details of the new ADAS features will be disclosed in January at the 2018 CES, along with the official model name.
