While you check out the gallery, here are some interesting facts about the Hyundai NEXO fuel cell SUV.
Despite having a larger tank than its predecessor (ix35), the NEXO apparently takes only 5 minutes to fill it to the maximum. It has an estimated driving range of 666 km (under WLTP testing).
Power and water to your house
Hyundai says that the NEXO’s fuel cell powertrain can be connected to your house to power many appliances found in the kitchen, living room and the garden. Because its powertrain produces only water vapour as a by-product, NEXO can also provide pure water to grow vegetation in the garden.
Survives in freezing temperatures
Hyundai’s engineers have designed a new component to heat up the fuel cell stack of the NEXO in sub-zero conditions. Thanks to this thermal management strategy, the NEXO can be started at -30° C.
The NEXO’s high-performance air filter can filter micro-particulates smaller than particulate matter (PM) 2.5 in size – the kind that can effect people’s health when levels are too high. In short, when air filters through the NEXO, 99.9 per cent of particulates are purified and the instrument cluster displays how much you have contributed towards cleaning the environment around you.
The NEXO is capable of level 4 autonomous driving. Read more about the NEXO here.
