Dubbed the Hyundai Nexo, it's the company's newest FCEV, and it comes in the form of a crossover SUV that runs entirely on electrical energy generated by on-board hydrogen fuel cells.
Compared with traditional cars that use conventional combustion engines, hydrogen cars such as the Hyundai Nexo can run entirely on electrical energy and therefore not directly emit any carbon dioxide or nitrogen oxide that could end up in the Earth's atmosphere. Its only by-product is said to be water vapor, which is so clean that it can be collected and then used afterwards in order to water plants or even drink a cup of tea or coffee.
According to Dr. Woong-chul Yang, vice chairman of the Hyundai Motor Company, the use of hydrogen energy with the Nexo is the next step in developing better technology for a sustainable planet. "Hydrogen energy is the key to building a more sustainable society," he said. "Yet as another result of this earth-saving effort today, I am so proud to introduce to you our second-generation full cell electric vehicle which is a culmination of our cutting-edge technologies."
