Hyundai Next Generation FCEV Debuts With 360-Mile Range

Hyundai has just unveiled its upcoming hydrogen fuel-cell SUV in near-production form, dubbed the Next Generation FCEV.

Debuting in Seoul, the vehicle is a follow on from the FE Fuel Cell Concept shown at March’s Geneva Motor Show and is a close representation of what the production vehicle will look like. When it launches, it will serve as the replacement to the Tucson fuel-cell and according to the Korean automaker, be capable of travelling 360 miles (580 km) on a single tank.

From a design standpoint, the Next Generation FCEV is the second vehicle in Hyundai’s range to adopt its new design language, recently previewed by the compact Kona crossover. As such, it has thin headlights matched by separate LED daytime running lights and fog lamps.

Some exact technical specifications remain unknown but the SUV is said to feature an electric motor with 120 kW and 400 Nm of torque driving the front wheels.

Hyundai has yet to announce if it intends on offering the new fuel-cell SUV in the United States.

    I’m not gonna lie. That interior is legit! It’s gorgeous!!!!

      Sure looks like they ripped of Lexus and Mercedes at the same time..which is not a bad thing.

        My very first thought: There’s a lot of Lexus going on in front of the arm rest. Specifically, ES and IS.

        However, I don’t think that’s a good thing. Hyundai Kia Automotive now has lots of talented designers – Peter Schreyer, Luc Donckerwolke, Sang Yup Lee; to name a few. They should be able to come up with an original design. The Genesis Vision G Coupe concept. That’s a really unique and beautiful stunner.

    It looks both Chinese and French, at the same time, and in a good way.

    I also see a little 2003-2006 Infiniti G35 in the interior. I need to see more angles. Not sure if I feel the all silver center stack.
    The exterior is pretty nice to say there is so much going on. Good job Hyundai.

    Citroen/Peugeot Exterior and Lexus Interior with a hint of Mercedes. Nice & original as usual from Hyundai….

    Hideous front end, handsome interior. I hope the former sees substantial revisions in the production model, while the interior remains essentially unchanged.
