Looking ahead to the next generation of hydrogen-powered vehicles, Hyundai unveiled its futuristic new FE Fuel Cell Concept vehicle at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The FE Fuel Cell Concept represents the next step for Hyundai Motor toward realizing its ultimate ambition of creating a zero-emission Hydrogen Energy Society.
Having already established itself as a global leader for hydrogen transportation, Hyundai reaffirmed its commitment to fuel cell vehicle development during the auto show, showing the future vision for zero-emission mobility, which will eventually include a line up of 14 or more new environmentally focused models set to be introduced by 2020!
Spurred on by greater global demand for fuel-efficient, eco-friendly vehicles, the program continues the example of innovation set by IONIQ, the first car to offer a choice of three electrified powertrains in a single body type.
The concept’s name ‘FE’ stands for Future Eco, reflecting the innovative new technologies that complement the car’s eco-friendliness – a recognition of its unique fuel source. One of the most notable characteristics of the new concept is its internal air humidifier, which recycles water emitted by the car’s clean hydrogen energy circulation to create a more comfortable cabin environment.
The FE Fuel Cell Concept will influence an SUV Fuel Cell model set to debut in 2018, featuring Hyundai’s Smart Sense driver assistance technologies, along with extensive hydrogen-powered range.
