Hyundai NEXO Fuel Cell
The electric motor in the NEXO generates 160 horsepower, enabling acceleration to 62 mph in about 9 seconds. Each of the three hydrogen fuel tanks can hold up to 52.2 liters, which is a much improved storage density over the previous generation fuel-cell vehicle. Even with the increased capacity, Hyundai claims it only takes about five minutes to refuel the NEXO. Once fully fueled, NEXO can travel up to 370 miles — about 105 miles farther than its predecessor. Like battery-powered EVs, fuel-cell vehicles have no emissions; however, an added benefit of the fuel-cell vehicle is that it actually filters the air as it drives. In fact, when air filters through the NEXO, 99.9 percent of particulates are purified — a display on the dashboard informs the driver how much has been contributed to cleaning the environment.
