Hyundai takes to the road for fuel-efficient future

Hyundai calls itself the first automaker to offer a full fleet of alternatives to achieve a more fuel-efficient automotive landscape. Electrification is challenging for large SUVs, said Mike O’Brien, vice president of product, corporate and digital planning. So those larger vehicles can be powered by hydrogen fuel cells.

Case in point: The Hyundai Nexo is a hydrogen-powered SUV with a 380-mile range, the greatest range of any electric vehicle or hydrogen fuel cell vehicle.

“Clean energy hydrogen is the future of transportation,” O’Brien said at the 2019 Washington Auto Show’s Media Day on April 4. “It emits only water.”

Hyundai’s goal is to be one of the top three EV manufacturers by 2025.
