Hyundai US-market fuel cell SUVs have accumulated more than 8.4M miles

Hyundai’s US-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 clean water vapor.

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. As our hydrogen refueling infrastructure continues to grow in California and into the northeastern US, we eagerly anticipate the exponential reduction in emissions it will bring, resulting in a cleaner atmosphere for everyone.

—Michael O’Brien, vice president of Product, Corporate and Digital Planning, Hyundai Motor America

NEXO is the new technological flagship of Hyundai’s growing eco-vehicle portfolio and marks Hyundai’s continued momentum with the industry’s most diverse SUV powertrain lineup. 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, allowing a consumer lifestyle very similar to a comparable internal-combustion SUV in terms of both range and refueling speed. NEXO dealers include Keyes Hyundai in Van Nuys, Tustin Hyundai and Capitol Hyundai in Northern California.



8.4 million miles is pathetic, and the hydrogen these vehicles ran on was no doubt made from steam-reforming of methane with the CO2 dumped to the atmosphere.

This entire fraud is in service to the oil companies, trying to keep them in the role of sole provider of energy for surface vehicles.  It is an outrage.


SAEP is at it again?


Clean H2 production may need positive action by most countries. A progressive $5/Kg subsidy for clean H2 produced with surplus/excess energy from REs and a progressive carbon tax of $5/Kg on H2 produced with NG could do it.?


Come back 4 days later and throw in some greenie boilerplate.

Gotta make that quota for the check, don't you AlzHarvey?


Coal, Oil and NG belong underground and should no longer be burnt in power plants, homes, factories, buildings, ground-sea-air vehicles etc?

Current and near future 24/7 REs, with various lower cost storages, will soon cost and pollute less and will not emit as much GHGs.

NPPs are another possibility but current high cost and unsolved safe long time waist storage have to be addressed.


Ye gods, AlzHarvey.  Are you always doing this in dead threads that everyone else is done reading?!  Dare I dig back in the past to find out what you have been doing where nobody else watches, just so you can meet some quota?

Maybe I should, just to document for Michael Millken just how you have been abusing this blog for your sponsor's aims.


SAEP is either blind or has a personal agenda.

I have no quota or engagement with any technologies.

I support most technologies that could be used to get off bio and fossil fuels, including current polluting farming methods and much lower cost nuclear.

I strongly support lower cost 24/7 REs (Hydro-Wind-Solar) with storage units where required.

I strongly support extra taxes on electricity produced with polluting fossil fuels, on bio/fossil fuels for ground-air-sea vehicles and negative taxes or subsidies on clean energy.

I'm getting tired of SAEP's false accusations but I would accept his support for NPPs whenever cost is reduced 3 times.

Renewables will never be sufficient to replace current demand, let alone current demand plus transportation plus manufacturing and heating.

The future belongs to advanced nuclear power.

Once there is sufficient nuclear plants to meet peak demand, those same nuclear plants will have enough capacity during off peak hours to produce more than enough hydrogen for transportation.
