Hyundai To Debut New Fuel Cell Model At 2018 Winter Olympics

Hyundai is set to debut its latest and greatest hydrogen fuel cell technologies at the 2018 Winter Olympics in an all-new model “between a CUV and SUV”.

The news was revealed by the company’s director of eco-vehicle development Ahn Byung-ki who pinpointed the South Korean Winter Games as the perfect spot for the company to show off its latest fuel cell model.

The fuel cell system of this model will adopt a larger battery than featured in Hyundai’s 2013 fuel cell driven Tucson and the ix35 while also including a smaller and lighter fuel cell and electric motor. Despite its reduced size, it will have a higher output than the firm’s original foray into the fuel cell market.

At this stage, it’s difficult to determine just what Byung-ki means by a model between a CUV and an SUV. Whatever the case may be, it will likely debut at the 2018 games in concept form before eventually hitting the market by the year 2020.

The South Korean firm recently announced that by 2020, it will roll-out 28 eco-vehicles across the Hyundai, Genesis and Kia brands. Those cars will consist of 10 hybrids, eight electric models, eight plug-in hybrids as well as two fuel cell models.
