  • Hyundai FE Fuel Cell Concept looks to the future at Geneva 2017

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.

The production version of this Hyundai fuel-cell crossover utility vehicle is expected to become available during 2018 in a handful of markets. The power density of the fuel cell stack is increased by 30 percent, boosting range substantially over the third-generation technology.

Hyundai Motor has a heritage of building innovative, fuel-efficient vehicles that advance the automotive industry's environmental progress.

They included the Hyundai Tucson FCEV, Hyundai's first commercialized fuel cell vehicle now sold in 17 countries, according to the company.

DeSean Jackson to Patriots?
Sure, Jackson hasn't killed it on the stat sheet as he turns 30 years old but would create a great 1-2 punch for defenses. After all, he was targeted an insane 176 times last season and caught 96 passes for 1,321 yards and 12 touchdowns.

With radical flowing lines said to take their inspiration from nature and water - the only substance emitting from its tailpipe - the concept is a radical departure from the Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell and not only in its looks. The "FE" name stands for "Future Eco". While the new fuel cell vehicle concept appears to be impressive, Hyundai will have to find a way to make fuel cells in general appeal to consumers interested in clean transportation.

Hyundai's FE Fuel Cell Concept is the latest in the company's eco-vehicle programme that will see at least 14 new "environmentally focused" vehicles introduced by 2020.

Hyundai is sticking with the SUV format, to distinguish its offering from the Toyota Miari now on sale and the Honda Clarity Fuel Cell whose sales started in December.

The FE Fuel Cell Concept is 20 percent lighter than the ix35-based fuel cell vehicle, and achieves 10 percent greater efficiency. Meanwhile, the trunk features an integrated storage and charging space for an electric scooter, demonstrating how Hyundai Motor is developing mobility solutions to match future lifestyles. This ensures that the vehicle has more range, reported Auto Blog. There's also portable battery packs so you can power your devices on the go. The bold looking SUV concept builds on the technology that now underpins the ix35 Fuel Cell (Tucson Fuel Cell in certain markets) with much improved hardware that is not only lighter but more fuel efficient as well. The auto is created to run for more than 800 kilometers between refueling, acknowledging the current limited hydrogen infrastructure.
