Hyundai reveals next-gen hydrogen vehicle

The hydrogen (H2)-powered SUV was presented at a special event held in Seoul. It previews Hyundai Motor’s second commercially produced H2 model and uses the company’s fourth generation of H2fuel cell technology.

Fuel cell system efficiency

By enhancing fuel cell performance, reducing H2 consumption, and optimising key components, the vehicle’s efficiency is greatly improved compared to its predecessor, the ix35 Fuel Cell. The new SUV boasts an efficiency level of 60%, or a 9% increase from the ix35’s 55.3%. With enhanced system efficiency, the new model targets a driving range of 800km on a single charge.

Hydrogen storage

The next generation H2 vehicle makes significant improvements in tank storage density. The tank package now features three equally-sized tanks, as opposed to two of different sizes. World-class tank gravimetric capacity (hydrogen storage mass per tank weight) was achieved through innovations to the plastic liner configuration and efficient layering pattern, which resulted in a reduction of thickness.

New eco-vehicle development roadmap

The new model will spearhead Hyundai Motor’s plans to accelerate development of low emission vehicles, in line with Hyundai Motor Group’s renewed goal of introducing 31 eco-friendly models (Hyundai Motor and Kia Motors combined) to global markets by 2020. This new development roadmap also represents the next step for Hyundai Motor and its affiliate toward realising the ultimate ambition of creating a cleaner environment through eco-friendly vehicles.

Hyundai Motor will reveal the new H2 SUV early next year in Korea, followed by the North American and European markets. The company will also consider expanding availability of its new fuel cell model to markets with high growth potential for eco-friendly vehicles such as China.
