Hyundai Nexo Electric SUV Achieves A Five Star Rating From Green NCAP
Hyundai Nexo has received a maximum five-star ranking from Green NCAP, the independent association that classifies vehicles according to their energy quality and emissions, as the second-generation fuel cell electric vehicle of Hyundai. Nexo inherently won maximum points for both Clean Air and Greenhouse Gas, both as a fuel cell electric vehicle fueled by hydrogen and producing pure water as the only pollution.
Its good success has also shown the efficiency of the device, demonstrating that mobility of fuel cells is a mature technology and a viable solution.
“[With Hyundai Nexo], no emissions of tailpipes except water are available,” Green NCAP said in his study. This ensures that both the Clean Air and Greenhouse Gas Indices are granted maximum points by the Nexo. Energy performance is still outstanding and the NEXO is only enough to reach a top five star ranking for an average index.”
“We are proud to announce that NEXO has been given a Green NCAP 5-star rating for the new Hyundai model to join IONIQ and KONA Electric. It is just another proof of our mission of providing all people with quality, environmentally sustainable mobility solutions” said Andreas-Christoph Hofmann, Hyundai Motor Europe’s Vice President of Marketing and Product. “Nothing more than a green friendly zero-emission car, our flagship fuel cell electric vehicle, it has also become an incredibly efficient commodity with very high power consumption.”.
Hyundai’s Nexo is a hybrid car fuel cell and Hyundai’s growing fleet of green vehicles technologically flagship. The practicality of an SUV crossover is paired with advanced electrically advanced technology, extensive driver support, and creative concept features. Nexo is Hyundai’s third model, to achieve the highest ranking is five stars. Green NCAP also awarded the Hyundai Ioniq’s 5-star electric battery variant in 2019. In the meantime, Hyundai Kona Electric has received the top score in 2020.
Hydrogen is not used as a fuel source specifically like all FCEVs. Instead, hydrogen is used by the fuel cells to create energy, and this is then used to drive the car as in a pure electric vehicle. The 120 kW Hyundai Nexo hydrogen fuel-cell engine produces 161 bhp and a torque of 395 Nm and manages to reach an average sprint of 0-100 kmph in 9.2 seconds.
