The Hyundai NEXO has been awarded a five-star rating from Green NCAP. This means that the vehicle has excellent energy efficiency and emissions. The Green NCAP is a self-governing initiative that focusses on the development of clean, safe vehicles by mean of intricate testing. Looking at 3 key aspects - clean air, energy efficiency and greenhouse gases, the NEXO shined in all departments. This is all proof of the quality of the NEXO and fuel cell technology as a whole.
Green NCAP reported, “[With the Hyundai NEXO] there are no tailpipe emissions other than water. As a result, the NEXO scores full points for both the Clean Air and Greenhouse Gas indexes. Energy efficiency is also very high and the NEXO emerges with an average index just high enough to earn the car a maximum five-star rating.”
Andreas-Christoph Hofmann, the Vice President of Marketing and Product at Hyundai Motor Europe, said, “We are proud to announce that the NEXO is the latest Hyundai model to have been awarded a five-star Green NCAP rating, joining the ranks of the IONIQ and the KONA Electric. This is further proof that we are achieving our goal of making high-quality, eco-friendly mobility solutions available to all.
“Our flagship fuel cell electric vehicle has been recognised not just for being an environmentally-friendly zero-emission vehicle, but also a strong product with very high energy efficiency.”
