Hyundai Planning Host of Reveals at Hydrogen Wave Sept 7

Hyundai thinks fuel cells are a gas

  • Hyundai teases H2 big rig, performance car

  • Brand plans big hydrogen power announcements at event


Hyundai is getting ready to go all-in on hydrogen-powered vehicles. The company plans to unveil its “future vision for hydrogen society” next month at a global hydrogen forum. Until then, they’ve given us a look at what appears to be an H2-powered Hyundai N vehicle getting a workout on the test track.

The automaker says that “state-of-the-art future fuel cell electric vehicles – as well as other innovative applications – will be unveiled during the forum.” That forum is the Hydrogen Wave global forum set to take place on September 7. It will be streamed live on the Hyundai Group’s YouTube channel, and will be followed by an actual exhibition to follow in Goyang, South Korea, from September 8-11.

We don’t get a great glimpse of the car, but it appears to be a hatchback or four-door coupe, based on the sloping roofline and the brief rear view. Hyundai strongly hinted earlier this year that it would develop a fuel cell powertrain for the N division, using that zero-emissions tech to generate performance. It launched the brand with the N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo, a concept that made 872 hp from a fuel cell powertrain.

 

Hyundai also shows a hydrogen-powered big rig, or at least the fuel tanks of the vehicle, wearing Hyundai’s Htwo badging. It has previously announced that Htwo, which represents both the hydrogen molecule as well as “Hydrogen and Humanity” will be used for the brand’s fuel cell business. A third video shows a look at all of the places where you could fill up with hydrogen and is basically just a look at a few cities around the world through the view of a hydrogen filler neck.
