Hyundai Nexo FCV Will Cost You More Than A Range Rover Sport In The UK

Hyundai has launched the Nexo in the United Kingdom, but it will cost you a pretty penny. In fact, it will you put straight in Range Rover territory, as the hydrogen-powered SUV has a starting price of £65,995 ($87,572/€77,156), which includes a £3,500 Plug In Car Grant. There’s only one available trim level called the SE.

You may (or may not) find comfort in the fact that it’s equipped with all sorts of amenities such as LED lights, 19-inch wheels and flush door handles. Customers will be able to choose between five standard exterior colors, including the Titanium Grey, which is available at launch only.

The 7-inch instrument cluster, 12.3-inch infotainment system with split-screen function, smartphone integration, wireless charging pad, leather seats with heating and ventilation at the front, heated steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, sunroof, electric tailgate and others are also standard.

Drivers are assisted by a range of safety features such as the Autonomous Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Driver Attention Alert, Lane Following and Lane Keep Assists, High Beam Assist, Smart Parking Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control.

Refueling the 3 tanks with hydrogen takes around 5 minutes and after that, the Nexo can be driven for up to 414 miles (666 km) in the WLTP cycle. The total system output of 163 PS (161 hp / 120 kW) and 395 Nm (291 lb-ft) of torque allows for a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) acceleration of 9.5 seconds and a 111 mph (179 km/h) top speed.

The Nexo benefits from Hyundai’s 5-year unlimited mileage warranty. The hybrid battery has an 8-year warranty and there’s a 12-year anti-corrosion warranty as well.
