Second Generation Nexo: Hydro-Powered Vehicle Technology
Hyundai have developed their second generation of the Nexo, which is issuing in a new age of hydrogen-powered, emission-free fuel-cells. This marvel is the exemplification of clean driving, and ringing in a new era eco-friendly vehicle. These cars actually clean the air as they drive with one hour of driving creating 25.9kg of purified air. This equals enough air for 42 people for one hour. The NEXO electric engine is powered through a fuel cell system that combines oxygen and hydrogen to create a flow of electrons that charges the 1.56k Wh high voltage battery, whilst the only emissions are air and water droplets.
The capabilities of this next gen fuel cell significantly exceed that of its predecessor, the first mass-produced fuel cell that was released in 2013. It has been overhauled to improve efficiency, consuming as little as 1kg of hydrogen per 100km, whilst being constructed in a smaller, lighter and stronger capacity. It typically takes five minutes to fill up for a range of 413 miles. It has an acceleration rate of 0-62 in 9.54 seconds and has a maximum speed of 111mph.
