Hyundai Nexo Hydrogen FCEV feasibility study begins in India

According to media reports, Hyundai has started a feasibility study of the hydrogen fuel-cell powered Nexo FCEV in India.

The Hyundai Nexo debuted at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). It's an SUV that uses a 40 kW lithium-ion battery and a 95 kW hydrogen fuel-cell. It comes with an electric motor that has an output of 161 BHP and 395 Nm of torque. The car has a range of 666 km on the WLTP cycle.

Last month, the Supreme Court of India had suggested the government to explore the feasibility of hydrogen fuel vehicles to curb pollution. Just as the proliferation of the electric vehicle is limited by charging infrastructure, hydrogen fuel-cell cars will also require an extensive network of hydrogen filling stations.
