Hyundai | The Way of the Future

A fleet of Hyundai’s next generation NEXO fuel cell electric cars, fitted with autonomous technology, has successfully completed a self-driven 190km highway journey in Korea.

It was the longest distance covered by a self-driving vehicle on Korean roads and included travel at speeds of up to 110km/h, the maximum allowed.
Three NEXO models took part in the drive, with the next-generation fuel cell electric SUV scheduled to be released in Korea this month. All vehicles were equipped with level four self-driving technology, as defined by the SAE international standards, allowing the car to safely drive itself without any human input, referred to as ‘mind off’ autonomy.

The vehicle can drive more than 600km on a single charge, which takes approximately five minutes. The model boasts world-class system efficiency of 60 per cent, durability equivalent to internal combustion engine-driven vehicles and a load space of 839 litres.
