Hyundai Nexo FCV Debuts At CES With 370 Mile Range

Hyundai has used the Consumer Electronics Show to introduce its all-new fuel cell vehicle which is called the Nexo.

Described as a technological flagship, the Nexo is a stylish crossover which is a key part of the company’s plan to introduce 18 eco-friendly vehicles by 2025.

The Nexo will go on sale in selected markets later this year and the model will be offered with an assortment of new driver assistance technologies including a blind-spot view monitor that uses wide angle surround view cameras on each side of the vehicle to show areas that cannot be seen by a traditional rearview mirror. Images from these cameras will then be displayed to drivers on a “center cluster screen.”

The Nexo will also become the first Hyundai model to offer Lane Following Assist. The company says the system automatically adjusts the crossover’s steering to help keep the Nexo centered in its lane of travel. Another notable feature is the Highway Driving Assist function which uses sensors and map data to automatically adjust the Nexo’s speed.

If that wasn’t impressive enough, the crossover also features a Remote Smart Parking Assist function which enables owners to remotely park or retrieve their vehicle. Hyundai didn’t say much about the system but stated “When faced with any challenging parking scenario, Nexo drivers will be able to park with complete confidence and accuracy.”

The Nexo is built on a dedicated architecture and this enables the model to be lighter, faster, and roomier than the Tucson FCV. The model also features an improved fuel cell stack and battery as well as a lighter powertrain with improved packaging.

Speaking of performance, Hyundai says the Nexo has an electric motor that develops 160 hp (120 kW) and 291 lb-ft (394 Nm) of torque. This enables the crossover to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 9.5 seconds which is a full three seconds faster than the Tucson FCV. The model also has a range of approximately 370 miles (595 km) which is 105 miles (168 km) more than its Tucson counterpart.

    The Cherokee headlight thing is catching on apparently.

      Ironically, the Cherokee is dropping said headlight thing with the refresh.

      Was hardly just a “Cherokee-thing” – Citroen has been doing the split light thing for a while now.

      Was hoping the production version would improve things, but no – still hard on the eyes.

    This is nice. I’m down.

    Nice to see that hydrogen is still being worked on. It’s important to let all alternative fuel solutions develop fairly.

  • The specs looks good, and design as well, although the fron’t don’t resonate much to me.

    But it’s glad that hydrogen fuel is still being developed. I still think it’s a good idea for future cars.

    Showing footage of

    wasn’t the best idea.
    Memory is too fresh.
    Especially since they

    admitted looking for.

      Nice… Couldn’t find the rhythm tho, right?

  • Bash

    Love it, although would have loved it even more if the rear lights were slimier like the front ones, would give it a sleeker look IMO.
    But this rear end, reminds me of Audi.
