The car of tomorrow, today.
We are committed to playing our part in creating a sustainable, Earth-conscious future – where evolved vehicles co-exist with our environment while elevating our day-to-day lives. The latest demonstration of that commitment is the Nexo: the first zero-emission hydrogen-powered electric vehicle that doesn’t compromise on range, performance, style and comfort.
Every bit as smart as it looks, the Nexo puts all the latest integrated automotive tech at your fingertips, within the context of a luxurious, fully-appointed cabin and a futuristic and hyper-efficient design aesthetic.
Understanding hydrogen – the ultimate energy source.
Hydrogen fuel cells can be constantly sourced, emit nothing but pure water and offer high fuel efficiency and an ultra-quick refuelling time of five minutes.
As the first company to mass produce a hydrogen-powered electric vehicle, we’re an official member of the global Hydrogen Council and are working with government to develop the necessary charging infrastructure. It’s all part of our belief that the future of motoring lies in hydrogen fuel cells.
1. The hydrogen fuel stored in its tank is supplied to the fuel cell stack.
2. Inflow of air is supplied to the fuel cell stack.
3. The reaction of air and hydrogen in the fuel cell stack generates electricity and water.
4. The electricity generated is supplied to the motor and battery.
5. What comes out after all of this?
NEXO purifies the air.
Except for water vapour, the Nexo expels zero tailpipe emissions. Better still, it actively improves air quality as it drives. How? Because its hydrogen fuel cell stack requires purified air to function, the filter within the air intakes works to remove micro-particulates in the air. So when unused air is then expelled, the result is an outside left cleaner than it was before.
You can use the Nexo’s touchscreen display to see the amount of air purification and CO2 reduction you’ve achieved.
A revolution in research.
We believe hydrogen energy is the key to building a more sustainable future. The Nexo’s hydrogen fuel cell engine generates electricity by mixing oxygen with compressed hydrogen to create a flow of electrons. It’s brilliant, efficient, and only emits pure, clean water. Better still, the efficient and durable air purifier filters remove 99.9% of micro-particulates. This means the Nexo’s clean technology actually helps remove carbon emissions from the air while driving.
It’s the sustainable future of driving, powered by human innovation.
Designed for the future.
The Nexo is a bold step towards a better future. We’ve designed the exterior to reflect this, making it as streamlined and sublimely futuristic as possible. Its cascading grille and horizon LED positioning lamps propel it forward, while innovative detailing such as auto-retractable door handles give it a seamless look that complements its sleek, future-forward style.
Drive with confidence knowing you're surrounded by in-built, interconnected sensors and alerts acting like a second pair of eyes.
NEXO's ingenious technology extends from front to back. Stand within a metre of the boot with your Smart Key for three seconds, and it will automatically pop open for you. A push button will also soundly shut it for you as you walk away.
Flush door handles.
Stealthily extend out and sink back into the door as required for a seamless look.
Horizon positioning lamp.
Inspired by the light above the horizon at dawn, the Daytime Running Lights are connected by a line of light across the front to emphasise the elegant front design.
Designed for tomorrow, inspired by you.
The Nexo’s spacious interior is as comfortable as it is sophisticated, with all the latest technology seamlessly integrated, intuitively designed and a pleasure to observe. As you’d expect from such an environmentally-focused vehicle, eco-friendly materials have been used wherever possible, to keep you moving forward while further reducing your footprint.
The next generation of tech.
The leading-edge technologies you’ll find in the Nexo are additional demonstrations of its future-forward nature. From the controls interface accessible via its oversized 12.5” touchscreen through to its autonomous remote parking capabilities, the Nexo’s extensive suite of next-gen innovations will take your driving enjoyment to the next logical level.
A class leader in safety.
Interconnected safety technologies built into the Nexo are designed to make you aware of everything going on around you – especially the hazards you haven’t yet seen – and provide steering assist, Hyundai SmartSenseTM[H1] is a demonstration of enduring safety that will extend far beyond today.
