Hyundai Increases the NEXO Hydrogen Fuel Cell SUV’s Availability
California has adopted clean air initiatives, and the Hyundai NEXO is a product exclusive to the California market. Even in California, the NEXO is not readily available, but now the vehicle will be sold through a Northern California dealership known as Roseville Hyundai.
Hyundai NEXO Sold in Roseville Hyundai
Roseville Hyundai near Sacramento will be the fourth dealership in California, selling the Hyundai NEXO. There are now two dealerships in NorCal and two in SoCal. What I’m more impressed with is how well the NEXO leases out. $379 a month for the Blue model and $449 for the Limited model for 36 months. Three years of free maintenance will not be available, only one year.
Hyundai NEXO Advantages
Hyundai touts quick refueling times and what comes out of the NEXO’s tailpipe is cleaner than the air that goes into the NEXO. The vehicle boasts a 380-mile range and only takes five minutes to fill up. The NEXO allows owners to experience a zero-emission car with a petrol-powered vehicle’s practicalities, and the NEXO doesn’t even cost an insane amount. I assumed the lease would be in the $700s a month because of how “cool” it is.
Hyundai NEXO Expansion Conclusion
Hyundai is deeply invested in not only EVs but also hydrogen fuel-cell. Hyundai has sent 10+ Hydrogen commercial trucks to Switzerland, and now Hyundai took a baby step to expand in California. Hyundai even announced the expansion of its partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy to support Hyundai’s DOE Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Program. All this will accelerate hydrogen and fuel cell tech progression in multiple sectors. Hyundai is committed to a clean future, and it is even working on sustaining EV battery tech to reuse and recycle batteries to make the construction of these cars as “green” as possible. It will be interesting to see where Hyundai will be in 2 years’ time.
