Hyundai Nesco Review: Hydrogen Hydrogen Receptor

As vehicle emissions regulations are becoming increasingly stringent, taxes on traditional petrol and diesel cars are increasing.
This is why manufacturers shrink engines to fit vehicles in acceptable tariff categories. This is because of the absorption of hybrid components, regenerative hybrids and even complete electronic vehicle (EV).
That’s why some believe hydrogen fuel cell technology is the future. This is where the Nexo – Hyundai’s second H2, which is about to hit the roads in 2019, took the picture.
The real exhaust pipes that these SUVs emit are water, which releases their emissions. How is it for you to feel completely smoked and have no tax for anxiety?
There are some catches: there is not a lot of hydrogen fuel in the UK (you can count the number of public fuel stations in both hands), which limits your chances of running; Future technology is a costly initial purchase, as Nexo is expected to be in and around the price range Sterling is expected to cost £ 65,000.
Design: Future fun
There is no doubt that Nexo sees the part as representative of its future vision.
The front has an angled headlamp with striking front grille and LED cars that have a full width LED “skyline” tape.
It’s a shame that after examining the front Hyundai sign as flat and neat as the prints, the grille looks a bit polished.
The back features triple lamps and again with LED fixtures that look great when illuminated.
The “nexo” symbol is pretty huge, though, so everyone is sure of what you’re driving (for example, these cars will be a very rare sight in 2019).
For aerodynamics, the lateral side reveals flexible panel work. The 17-inch alloy wheels are designed with the bottom end of the car in mind to maintain tension.
Even the door handles go in and out (very noisy and somewhat similar to the elegance of the Lexus LC500).
In many ways, the Nexo is very similar to the Hyundai’s Kona Soft-SUV, which may be controversial, but we think it makes all this square fit for this diverse future presence without having to walk the Toyota Prius’ lively road.
Interior: Good idea, weird design
The move inside, however, is a slightly different story. In our photos, the Nexo looks clean and cheerful, but personally the huge console – a bunch of buttons – looks extra and feels plastic.
Many marked buttons enhance the sound of these buttons, while the driving area (D, P, R, N) of the four buttons is the same size as the conventional gear zone.
This is a shame, because Nexo also embodies some good ideas. The 12.3-inch central display is bold, bright and well-equipped – almost 7 inches out of the wheel, integrated into the driver group. This is a contemporary idea like ours.
In keeping with Nexo’s point of view, many interior elements are durable: there are bamboo and sugarcane.
All of them look and feel good, but everything looks like different types of plastic; And these non-plastic materials are somewhat different shades, textures and finishes that fail to finish perfectly coherently.
There are some more cool features though
Heated drivers and passenger and cooler seats (they are great for warmer climates) make comfortable seats better, while a semi-panoramic sunroof creates a light and airy feel, while various USB ports make phone connection very easy (CarPlay and Android). Auto both available) There are also standards; The Krell sound system is not as good as it should be.
We do not doubt Nexo’s good ideas, but as External has outlined its future outlook, deploying internal technology continues to be a headline task rather than a final deal. Especially at this price (most of your money is clearly moving towards fuel technology).
Driving: Safe and stable
With the push of a button like an electric car, Nexo caught fire, much less silent.
This is because, in essence, an electric car (well, it’s FCEV): a hydrogen fuel cell (FC) electric motor (EV) is used for electricity, so the feeling on the road is the same.
It is highly compatible with other EVs, including the BMW i3 and means that the performance of the nexo is based on a larger one.
Since the car uses regenerative brakes to bring power back to the battery for more economies – there are three levels that are found on the right and left paddles around the steering wheel – very similar to lifting your foot off the throttle, so you need to learn to foot footage very nicely from the pedal.
Breaking in Lv3 regeneration is very strict, so we are stuck in lv2.
The Nexo can reach 62 miles per hour in less than 10 seconds, so it’s not the fastest thing on the road by any means.
