The front-wheel drive electric SUV Hyundai Nexo was shown in January 2018, and outwardly it organically fit into a wide range of Korean technology, since it had a familiar attribute of any car with an internal combustion engine — a radiator grille.

An outside observer could be alerted only by the absence of the usual exhaust pipes (in fact, they are, as they remove water vapor), because otherwise this five-door did not give out a high-tech car in any way.

2790 mm. wheelbase, 4670 mm. body length — the «classic» dimensions of a mid-size crossover, nevertheless, hid the most complicated work on the arrangement of the chassis, which was mounted on a specially created platform, involving the use of a monocoque body.

The global vector of development of the global automotive industry, which is directed towards a complete rejection of engines that emit harmful substances into the atmosphere, has already given us a lot of hybrids and electric cars.

Such machines, justly playing the role of the so-called. technological flagships, almost all major car manufacturers have in their arsenal, but some of them have gone even further.

In the Korean company Hyundai, the Nexo electric mid-size crossover has the status of the most advanced development, drawing energy not only from traction lithium-ion batteries, but also generating almost twice as many kilowatts of hydrogen fuel cells.

Hyundai Nexo 2020 received a streamlined silhouette, original LED optics and an almost seamless body structure.

Behind — Nexo can be confused with any other «Korean» from Hyundai, which can be interpreted only as the desire of the designers of this hydrogen car to offer motorists a familiar everyday car, albeit in an extremely environmentally friendly technical performance.


Unlike modern electric vehicles, which call to leave only one multifunctional tablet on the front panel, in the Korean Hyundai Nexo 2020 the cockpit is quite traditional: a multi-wheel, a central tunnel with an abundance of physical controls, a virtual «tidy», a central multimedia display.

Technical stuffing

Under the hood of the Nexo hides a traction 120-kilowatt electric motor (163 hp), complemented by a single-speed transmission that transmits torque to the front axle.

This unit is powered by lithium-ion batteries (40 kW) and hydrogen tanks (95 kW) in the luggage compartment.

With such an engine, the crossover accelerates to «hundreds» in 9.2 seconds, and its «maximum speed» reaches 179 km / h. The Koreans call the main advantage of the power unit of their car zero emissions.

Power reserve

In 2019, Hyundai Nexo 2020 set a kind of mileage record, demonstrating not only the best performance in the class, but also good potential for improvement.

The goal of the testers was about 800 km, while the route was laid on the roads of France.

The car driven by the famous Swiss aeronaut Bertrand Piccard at the “finish” overcame the mark of 778 km., While the digital dashboard displayed a residual power reserve of 49 km!

Release date in Russia

The most successful Hyundai Nexo 2020 is sold at home in South Korea, and this model has arrived in Europe quite recently. It is very difficult to say when hydrogen cars will appear in Russia, since this requires not only an appropriate infrastructure (gas station), but also, as the Korean experience shows, support from the state, encouraging its citizens to switch to environmentally friendly transport.

The global hydrogen car market cannot yet boast of an abundance of models: Europeans have access to the Hyundai Nexo and Toyota Mirai, but only a few hundred such cars are sold in Europe a year. But in the USA such equipment is bought more actively — up to several thousand cars annually, but there the Japanese rule the show with their Toyota Mirai and Honda Clarity.

The longest-range — Korean SUV — costs $ 60-65 thousand, and the most expensive equipment of the Hyundai Nexo 2020 differs from the base one by the presence of a panoramic roof, 19-inch wheels, a parking lot and a premium audio system with 8 speakers.
