- Hyundai NEXO receives the highest number of points in the Green NCAP
- NEXO, the third Hyundai model awarded five-star rating
- IONIQ Elektro and KONA Elektro in 2019 and 2020
The Hyundai NEXO (consumption of hydrogen in kg H2 / 100 km: urban 0.77, extra-urban 0.89 , combined: 0.84; CO2 emissions in g / km combined: 0) achieved the maximum rating of five stars in the Green NCAP. Green NCAP is an independent organization that classifies vehicles in terms of their energy efficiency and emissions.
The assessment is based on three categories, which include various individual measurement data: clean air, energy efficiency and greenhouse gases. As a fuel cell vehicle that is powered exclusively by hydrogen and whose only emission is water, the NEXO received the highest score of 10.0 in the categories “clean air” and “greenhouse gases”. The Hyundai NEXO also impressed the experts with regard to its energy efficiency.
“We are proud, very proud that, after the IONIQ Elektro and KONA Elektro, we have now also been able to achieve a five-star rating in the Green NCAP with the NEXO,” says Jürgen Keller, Managing Director at Hyundai Motor Germany. “The NEXO is already there The second generation of a mass-produced fuel cell vehicle from Hyundai and is one of the most innovative products in our range. The Green NCAP award proves that with the NEXO we are not only offering an environmentally friendly model, but also a vehicle with very high energy efficiency. ”
The Hyundai NEXO is not only one of the technological flagships of the South Korean manufacturer, but is an important component in the constantly growing, environmentally friendly model fleet from Hyundai. It combines the practical properties of an SUV with advanced drive technology, comprehensive driving assistance functions and innovative design.
With the NEXO, Hyundai’s third model has already received the maximum rating of five stars in the Green NCAP. In 2019, the battery-electric version of the Hyundai IONIQ (power consumption in kWh / 100 km combined: 13.8; CO2 emissions in g / km combined: 0) also received the highest number of points and last year the organization awarded the Hyundai KONA Elektro a five -Star rating.
