Hyundai Nexo fuel-cell SUV unveiled

Hyundai Nexo fuel-cell SUV unveiled

The Nexo will go on sale in limited markets later this year, and it sits on underpinnings designed from the ground up around its hydrogen fuel-cell powertrain.

The NEXO is a svelte-looking SUV, with subtle surfacing and a "floating" roof design giving it a swoopy stance. It may prove a more attractive proposition to rivaling Honda and Toyota fuel cell sedans because its SUV shape offers more practicality and a style many new auto shoppers are looking for.

That aside, though, it looks like a relatively conventional SUV.

"It embodies everything, we have learned over the years of green-car development - from the first Sonata Hybrid to the Tucson Fuel Cell to the IONIQ", Lee said. The Nexo now rides on its own custom architecture, meaning it can be easily adapted to the requirements of a fuel cell auto, with better packaging of the fuel tanks, three of them stored under the floor, complete with a lithium-ion battery pack in the trunk. The fuel cell stack (which converts hydrogen to electricity) is smaller, too.

Flight of the Conchords to return with one-hour special
Flight Of The Conchords will be touring the United Kingdom throughout March but have no further dates scheduled. The original television series only had two short-lived seasons of 12 episodes in 2008 and 10 episodes in 2009.

The result in an SUV with 370 miles of range that can top off its fuel in just five minutes. The NEXO's 0-60 time is 9.5 seconds, 20 percent faster than the Tucson FCV.

The crossover is an evolution of the old ix35 fuel cell vehicle (FCV), only it features a more powerful motor system, which is also lighter in weight, with improved hydrogen storage tanks.

By the numbers, Hyundai says the new fuel-cell and battery system is rated at a total of 135 kilowatts, up from 124 in the Tucson.

Lane Following Assist (LFA) makes its debut on the NEXO, and combined with Highway Driving Assist (HDA) this enables the NEXO to maintain lane positioning and a safe distance from the vehicle in front between 0 and 90 miles per hour (145 km/h). One of them is a blind-spot monitoring system using the central infotainment display. A third system is a blind spot monitor that shows the driver in the main instrument cluster the rear and side views of the vehicle.

Later in the evening, Eva Longoria also brought up Sadler's departure while speaking with Rancic's co-host Ryan Seacrest .

The new Nexo features a slew of Level 2 autonomous features, but is expected to be Level 4 capable.

The new Lane Following Assist with Highway Driving Assist automatically adjusts the steering to keep the Nexo centered in its lane.

The remote smart parking assist system enables the NEXO to autonomously park itself and get out of a parking space with or without a driver in the auto, the statement said.

"With that, they see the price of fuel cell vehicles can drop dramatically as the popularity grows. I think fuel cell vehicles offer a number of advantages to experience that", Chris Urmson, CEO of Aurora, told The Korea Herald when asked of its competence over electric vehicles that he worked on in previous years.
