What Car? says...
Let's say you want to save the planet, but you’re put off electric cars by their long charge times, what do you do? One answer is to get a car powered by hydrogen, just like the Hyundai Nexo. Although it is an electric car, it effectively has its own on-board power station, called a fuel cell, to generate electricity, rather than using a massive battery pack.
By using hydrogen to feed the fuel cell, you can fill the tank in about five minutes using equipment that’s only slightly fiddlier than a regular petrol pump. Not only will you get well over 300 real-world miles out of that refill, the only emissions when you’re driving are purified air and water.
Even though Hyundai is looking to sell thousands of Nexos, they aren’t cheap. There’s only one model and it sits between the Tesla Model 3 and Tesla Model S in terms of price. But arguably its biggest rival is the Jaguar I-Pace – after all, both are trend SUVs, as well as costing a similar amount.
So to find out if the Nexo is any good, keep reading over the next few pages for our in depth review. And while you’re here, have a look at our New Car Buying service for massive savings on all manner of new cars and SUVs.
