Hyundai Motors is working on an all-new hydrogen-powered fuel cell SUV model. Several countries are citing air-pollution issues and are looking at immediate alternatives. Electric and hybrid vehicles are readily available, however, the future of mobility is hydrogen powered vehicles.
The ix35 is Hyundai's first mass-produced fuel cell vehicle for global markets. Engineers back then had set out with a goal to offer fuel cell vehicles in several markets easily. Now an all-new full-size SUV by Hyundai is being developed for emerging fuel cell markets.
Previously, Hyundai's sub-brand KIA was expected to launch its very own hydrogen-powered model by 2020. It seems now that Hyundai Motors could introduce an all-new fuel cell SUV prior to 2020. The new fuel cell SUV will challenge Toyota's latest Mirai model.
Engineers are focussing on developing a hydrogen-powered vehicle that will boast of superior range and top speed. Hyundai technicians are aiming at a range of 800 plus kilometres on a full charge. The new fuel cell SUV from Hyundai is expected to have a top speed of 165 km/h plus.
Hyundai had used the Tucson as a base for their first ix35 fuel cell vehicle. They could continue to use the design language to spawn a range of fuel cell models for markets. So far, there is no information as to when this an all-new fuel cell SUV could break cover.
