Hyundai is looking at the feasibility of FCEVs in India.
Hyundai has showcased the Nexo FCEV SUV at the Auto Expo. The car comes with a 95kW fuel cell that powers an electric motor generating 161 PS and 395 Nm of peak torque. With a WLTP-certified range of 666km, a 0-100 kmpl time of 9.2 seconds and a 177 kmph top speed, the Nexo is touted to be Hyundai’s technological flagship.
Apart from an advanced powertrain, the Nexo also features a slew of driver assistant aids including Lane Following Assist, Highway Driving Assist and self-driving function. The exteriors feature a typical Hyundai design with several familiar elements. The Nexo is also well equipped on the inside, offering all the conveniences expected from a premium SUV.
Hyundai is suggesting that the Nexo is the ultimate solution for green mobility. The FCEV, like electric cars, claims to emit zero emissions and no particulate matter. With a push for greener cars, the Nexo may make a strong case in the premium car market. Hyundai is conducting a feasibility study for the Nexo in India and the company had showcased the model first at the India-Korea business summit in Delhi in 2018.
