Hyundai Vision FK revealed: A 671 BHP hydrogen sports car

The hydrogen-powered sports car also claims to provide a maximum range of 600 km on a single charge.

Hyundai has unveiled its new hydrogen-powered sports car prototype, dubbed the Vision FK.

The Hyundai Vision FK is said to feature a hydrogen fuel cell stack, paired with a Rimac-developed battery-electric powertrain, powering the rear wheels. If the car makes it to production, it will become the first hydrogen-powered hybrid sports car - making use of a combination of hydrogen and battery power sources.

The hybrid powertrain on the Vision FK claims to offer 500 kW (671 BHP) of peak power output, allowing the sports car to accelerate from 0 - 100 km/h in under 4 seconds. The hydrogen-powered sports car also claims to provide a maximum range of 600 km on a single charge.

The unveiling of the hydrogen-powered sports car from Hyundai comes just a day after it announced its plans to go all-electric. The South Korean carmaker confirmed it would stop selling fossil fuel-powered vehicles in Europe by 2035 and in other major markets by 2040.

The company stated that going forward, it will focus on its zero-emissions vehicles, which will include its battery-electric vehicle line-up and the hydrogen fuel cell models. The company already sells the Ioniq 5 BEV and the Nexo FCEV in international markets.
