The Hyundai NEXO arrives in Canada

Hyundai Canada has announced the arrival of the all-new full cell SUV, the Hyundai NEXO.

Unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in January 2018, the Hyundai NEXO, a fuel cell SUV, arrives in Canada, announced the manufacturer.

Following a collaboration with Modo, a carsharing co-operative, Hyundai Canada allows customers of the Vancouver-based company to access two Hyundai NEXOs.

The NEXO is powered by hydrogen and has a range of 570 km according to the manufacturer. It becomes the second hydrogen vehicle of the brand after the Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell, launched in 2015.

“Hydrogen vehicles are the most promising type of alternative powertrain transportation in existence today. It’s important for us to make innovative green technologies like NEXO readily available for Canadians to ensure a sustainable future,” says Don Romano, President and CEO of Hyundai Auto Canada Corp. “We’re thrilled to launch NEXO in B.C, as the province is a leader in implementing important sustainability initiatives and is aligned with our vision of introducing new means of clean mobility.”

Hyundai Canada mentions that NEXO will be offered “for retail sale through select local dealerships.”

The fuel cell SUV will be at the Vancouver Auto Show from March 19 to 24, where test drives will be possible.

The Korean manufacturer becomes the first manufacturer to offer a fuel cell SUV in Canada. For the moment only Honda, Toyota and Hyundai offer fuel cell vehicles in the country.

Let’s remember that British Columbia opened its first public hydrogen refuelling station last summer and refuelling the Hyundai NEXO takes only 5 minutes.
