Celebrating National Hydrogen Day 2020 on October 8, Hyundai’s U.S. fuel cell SUVs – the Nexo and the Tucson – have together accumulated more than 10.9 million miles, all emitting only clean water vapour. This cumulative distance is the equivalent of circumnavigating the Earth more than 437 times at the equator, measuring approximately 24,901 miles at its widest circumference.

“Celebrating National Hydrogen Day 2020, we’re incredibly proud of our hydrogen vehicle impact in reducing harmful greenhouse emissions on our planet. As the hydrogen refueling infrastructure continues to grow, we applaud the exponential emissions reduction it will bring, resulting in a cleaner atmosphere for everyone,” said Olabisi Boyle, vice-president of Product Planning and Mobility Strategy, Hyundai Motor North America.

Nexo is the technological flagship of Hyundai’s growing eco-vehicle portfolio and marks Hyundai’s continued momentum with the industry’s most diverse SUV eco powertrain lineup. The Nexo Blue model has an estimated range of 380 miles (623 kilometres), one of the highest of any zero-emissions vehicle, and refueling can be achieved in as little as five minutes, rivaling comparable internal-combustion SUVs in terms of both range and refueling speed.
