HYUNDAI MOTOR ANNOUNCES PRICING FOR NEXO

  • Priced at £65,995 including Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) and available directly from Hyundai Motor UK
  • NEXO is Hyundai Motor’s second generation mass produced hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle
  • 414 mile range, 5 minute refuelling, cleans the air as you drive and its only emissions are water vapour

High Wycombe, 20th March 2019 – Hyundai Motor UK has announced UK pricing for NEXO, the company’s 2nd generation hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle which is available to order directly from Hyundai Motor UK from today.

NEXO brings the very latest in hydrogen fuel cell and electric powertrain technology, with a range of up to 414 miles and it joins Kona Electric and IONIQ Electric as the latest electrified Hyundai model available in the UK and one of the 44 new electrified models that Hyundai Motor Group pledge to launch by 2025.

Available in one high trim specification, the £65,995* Premium SE, NEXO is a bespoke SUV with a distinctive frontal design that incorporates the Hyundai cascading grille and which further includes a full width LED positioning lamp, composite LED headlamps and combined LED daytime running lamp and indicators. At the side, 19” alloy wheels, gloss black door mirror housings and a silver garnish on the lower doors continue the stylish design, which is finalised at the rear with a high level gloss black spoiler and LED combination lamps.

As well as being stylish, the exterior of NEXO is also functional and designed to minimise drag, with curtain intakes in the front bumper ducting air over the aerodynamically designed front wheels, flush door handles that retract into the doors at 3km/h, air tunnels around the D pillar that channel disruptive air flow around the tailgate area and a hidden rear wiper blade that retracts underneath the rear spoiler when not in use. Underneath, a fully enclosed underside and front and rear wheel air deflectors complete the aero work, allowing NEXO’s full size SUV body to achieve a drag coefficient of just 0.329.

The interior of NEXO has been designed to complement the clean and aerodynamic exterior, with a Greige two tone interior trim incorporating cloth and faux leather seats, with the heated and ventilated front seats featuring full electrical adjustment, whilst the rear outermost seats offering independent heating. Dual zone climate control, sunroof, rear centre console ventilation, heated steering wheel, USB and QI wireless charging points and smart electric tailgate are just some of the specification highlights.

Situated within the drivers eye line is NEXO’s 7” LCD supervision instrument cluster, providing important driving information such as speed, fuel, temperature, power and odometer gauges. The supervision cluster also houses NEXO’s Blind Spot View Monitor, providing an on screen display fed from NEXO’s door mirror mounted cameras when the indicators a used and providing a real time display of the driver’s blind spot areas, enhancing rearward visibility in dark or adverse weather conditions.

Advanced connectivity and infotainment functions are also provided, with a 12.3” high resolution LCD screen showing the 7 speaker KRELL audio’s functions, that include standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, as well as the standard navigation system that can be controlled or viewed by pinching the screen as per smartphone or tablet. The 12.3” screen can also operate in multiple split screen mode functions, with the driver choosing from a number of operating screens, including navigation, audio, climate settings and vehicle status information. Responding to feedback from ix35 Fuel Cell customers, NEXO can also provide real time vehicle condition information, including energy flow and hydrogen tank operating conditions as well as air purification and CO2 reduction levels that NEXO achieves in normal driving conditions.

NEXO’s fuel cell electric powertrain offers the latest in fuel cell electric vehicle technology, with increased performance over its ix35 Fuel Cell predecessor, with a system output of 120kW/163ps and 395Nm torque yet still delivering a WLTP range of 414 miles based on the combined cycle. The under bonnet Power Module Complete (PMC) combines oxygen from the surrounding air and hydrogen from NEXO’s high pressure storage tanks, creating a flow of electrons that both powers the drive motor and charges the on board 1.56kWh high voltage battery. The only emissions from this process being harmless water vapour. NEXO uses adjustable regenerative braking, controlled by steering wheel mounted paddles, to both provide additional charge to the high voltage battery and provide a more engaging driving experience and has an advanced air purification system which filters 99.9% of very fine dust (PM2.5). The vehicle shows the exact amount of air purified on the display panel in the car.

NEXO also features a high level of driver assistance and convenience features; Lane Following Assist, Lane Keep Assist, High Beam Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control are all standard equipment, as is Remote Smart Parking Assist, whereby the driver can exit the vehicle and control parallel and perpendicular parking as well as forwards and backwards manoeuvres from NEXO’s keyless entry handset. 

With a Euro NCAP rating of 5*, safety is another key area of NEXO’s offering, with Autonomous Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Driver Attention Alert all featuring as standard equipment. NEXO also boasts a high level of body strength, with over 56% of the structure being manufactured from high strength steel, with an increased level of hot stamping around the door frames to increase strength in these key safety areas but keeps excess weight to a minimum. NEXO’s 3 hydrogen storage tanks, which already conform to independent rigorous testing standards, are further contained within a specially designed tank protection structure, which is designed to absorb high energy impacts without transferring impact loads through to the hydrogen tanks.

As well as its environment friendly powertrain, NEXO has also been independently validated for its use of bio materials throughout the interior. NEXO has been assessed and awarded the UL Bio Environmental Seal for the use of bio fibres from sugar cane waste and vegetable plasticisers in the headliner and carpet areas, bio plastics from sugar cane and corn waste in door, seat, pillar and console trims and bio paint extracted from rapeseed and soybean oils for dashboard and centre console.

NEXO is available in 5 exterior colour finishes, White Cream, Cocoon Silver, Copper Metallic, Dusk Blue and the launch colour, Titanium Grey. All exterior paint finishes are no cost options, with the interior featuring a two tone greige interior finish.

Ashley Andrew, Managing Director, Hyundai Motor UK said “Hyundai will always be proud to have been the first manufacturer to bring a commercially available fuel cell electric vehicle to market with the ix35 Fuel Cell. NEXO re-positions our status as market leaders by combining its cutting edge powertrain with a bespoke, stylish body and comfortable and technically advanced interior. The ix35 Fuel Cell was previously only available in left hand drive configuration but with NEXO’s global development ensuring right hand drive availability, we are already in talks with a number of existing and new customers and are looking forward to the first customer deliveries soon.”

NEXO is available directly from Hyundai Motor UK. Customers requiring any further information on purchase, lease and potential funding opportunities can contact the NEXO Customer Helpline on 0344 346 0124

All NEXO’s come with Hyundai’s industry leading 5 Year Unlimited Mileage Warranty, Roadside Assistance package, 5 Year Annual Health Check, 12 Year Anti Corrosion Warranty and 8 year Hybrid Battery Warranty
