Just like Kia with the Niro EV concept, Hyundai is making sure the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas visitors will notice its booth, where it will feature the all-new next generation FCEV model as well as a host of all-new autonomous features.
The preview for the new fuel cell vehicle didn’t include the name of the crossover, but Hyundai Motor promises a “trio of new technologies at CES 2018, all focused on connecting future technology with evolving mobility challenges.” Most importantly, the company isn’t abandoning the fuel cell segment and is presenting in Las Vegas its next-generation hydrogen-powered fuel cell electric vehicle, a high-tech model that’s also packing new Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) technologies.
In addition, the company will also present a concept for the upcoming styling and technology of automotive cabins, while also presenting ways of using hydrogen power in the home. Compared to the current FCEV model, a former generation Tucson derivative, the new crossover is completely different from any other Hyundai models, and the new hydrogen-fueled crossover also adopts the new styling signature premiered by the Kona subcompact crossover. The fuel cell vehicle should now operate at 60 percent efficiency, 9% better than before, with the range now at up to 500 miles (804 kilometers).
