Fuel Cell Vehicle – The Ultimate Mobility Solution
The Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle is the ultimate eco-friendly mobility solution that will change the paradigm of automobile eco system across the world. Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles are free from any greenhouse gasses emissions as vehicle filters and purifies the air during its drive. When Air filters through FCEV, 99.9 per cent of particulates are purified, cleaning the environment.
Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEV) are currently considered the cleanest fuel technology available because of how harmless their by-product is. Unlike conventional internal combination vehicles, which spew out myriad poisonous gases as by-products, and electric vehicles powered by fossil-fuel driven electricity plants, FCEV work through a chemical reaction that produces electric-chemical reaction that produces electricity and creates only water as a by-product.
The Hyundai NEXO is powered by a 95 kW fuel cell that powers an electric motor which churns out 161 hp and 395 Nm of peak torque. It has a range of 666 km on a full tank of hydrogen, can accelerate from 0-100 kmph in just 9.2 seconds. We expect the Hyundai NEXO to be priced at Rs.42 Lakh (Ex.showroom).
