To meet the next deadlines for reducing the carbon footprint,-Brussels imposes a reduction of the average CO2 emissions from the range of the manufacturers to 95 g/km on the horizon 2021-, Hyundai will multiply the electrified models. The Korean firm plans to launch 18 vehicles of this type by 2025. Today, at the CES (Consumer Electronic Show) in Las Vegas, it reveals the Nexo, a 4.67 m SUV that Strenna a new generation of the fuel cell. Compared to the ix35 FuelCell, the 2019 Hyundai Nexo crosses a new step. The vehicle was developed specifically to accommodate the next generation fuel cell technology. The architecture was designed to optimize the integration of all components, without damaging the habitability that progresses.
The engineers have managed to reduce the congestion of the main components of the vehicle while increasing the performance. Lighter and more compact than before, the electric motor now delivers 163 HP, instead of 136 hp. The torque is now 402 Nm. At the same time, the combined power of the fuel cell and the battery has increased by 10% (135 kw-184 hp) thanks to the battery which goes from 24 to 40 kw. For its part, the fuel cell has a power of 95 KW. The Nexo is further signaled by a redesign of the hydrogen reservoir. Not content to be lighter, the storage system is distinguished by an improvement in the density of hydrogen. The gain in performance is important: 3 seconds were won (9.5 s) to reach the 100 km/h. If the driving approval should leap forward, autonomy has not been forgotten. The manufacturer announces an autonomy of 800 km, instead of 594 km for the first generation of its hydrogen technology. The 2019 Hyundai Nexo should begin its commercial career in the major world markets during the year 2018.
Hyundai took advantage of the Nexo’s presentation to announce its new driving AIDS technologies. His SUV thus hosts a display monitor of blind spots. This system uses wide-angle panoramic cameras so that the driver visualizes on his screen what happens in real time behind the vehicle and on the sides. Finally, this SUV is equipped with a trajectory support system operating up to 145 km/h and coupled with a highway driving aid. Inaugurated by BMW, the fully autonomous parking system, with or without a driver on board, also equips the 2019 Hyundai Nexo.
