Hyundai’s new hydrogen SUV is on its way
September 30 2017,
Hyundai believes in every type of alternative fuel, and from electricity to hydrogen, the Korean automaker seems to be covering every angle. Need proof? Just look at the new Hyundai IONIQ that offers a hybrid engine, an electric engine, and eventually a plug-in hybrid engine.
Hyundai’s next-generation FCEV is coming
And there’s the next generation Hyundai FCEV sport utility vehicle which was unveiled about a month ago. Set to take over from the Hyundai Tucson FCEV as the brand’s next hydrogen-powered model, the new SUV which doesn’t have a name yet is packed with some pretty impressive technology.
Indeed, it uses hydrogen to power its electric engine, and it can travel up to 580 kilometers once you have filled up. That’s right, with fuel cell electric vehicles, you don’t need to charge anything. You just need to fill it up with hydrogen which takes about the same time as filling up with gas, and then you are good to go. Power also increases over the current Tucson FCEV to 160 horsepower.
We don’t know too much about this model just yet, but news should start coming in soon so styed tuned!
