Hyundai appeared at 2017 Geneva Motor Show with a futuristic next generation FE Fuell Cell Concept ('FE' stands for 'Future Eco'), hinting at next phase of Hyundai Motor's eco-vehicle program, including the brand's ultimate ambition of creating a zero-emission Hydrogen Energy Society.
The successor of Hyundai ix35 Fuell Cell surely looks new and more modern on the outside, but there are many novelties hidden under the attractive, aerodinamically optimized outer lines and a body shape that was influenced by nature and water as the only acceptable emissions from this car.
The new technology is is 20% lighter, and achieves 10% greater efficiency. Power density of the new fuel cell stack is increased by 30%, meaning fuel cell-powered cars' range will be significantly boosted. With full fuel tanks, the concept is supposed to be capable of traveling for over 800 kilometers.
The concept also features portable battery packs that are charged by the car's energy output and can be used to power passenger devices, such as smartphones, tablets or laptops. Additionally, users will find an integrated storage and charging space in the trunk, hosting an electric scooter for future mobility requirements. What might be the most astonishing characteristic of FE Fuel Cell Concept, however, is its internal air humidifier, which recycles water emitted by the car's clean hydrogen energy circulation.
