Hyundai’s U.S.-market fuel cell SUVs – the NEXO fuel cell SUV and the Tucson fuel cell SUV – together have accumulated more than 8.4 million miles while emitting only water vapor, the automaker says.
This cumulative distance is the equivalent of 17 round-trip journeys to the surface of the moon – a distance of approximately 238,900 miles.
“Celebrating National Hydrogen Day 2019, we couldn’t be more proud of our NEXO and former Tucson Fuel Cell’s direct impact in reducing harmful greenhouse emissions in our planet,” states Michael O’Brien, vice president of product, corporate and digital planning at Hyundai Motor America. “As our hydrogen refueling infrastructure continues to grow in California and into the Northeastern U.S., we eagerly anticipate the exponential reduction in emissions it will bring, resulting in a cleaner atmosphere for everyone.”
NEXO is the new technological flagship of Hyundai’s growing eco-vehicle portfolio. The NEXO Blue model has an estimated range of 380 miles, and the NEXO Limited Trim has an estimated range of 354 miles. NEXO Blue models have estimated MPGe of 65 city, 58 highway and 61 combined, while NEXO Limited models have an estimated MPGe of 59 city, 54 highway and 57 combined. NEXO refueling can be achieved in as little as five minutes. Dealers include Keyes Hyundai in Van Nuys, Tustin Hyundai and Capitol Hyundai in northern California.
