Hydrogen cars, Hyundai strategy, diffusion by 2040

At the virtual global forum Hydrogen Wave the Hyundai Group presented his plans to spread thehydrogen by 2040 through the introduction of new technologies and mobility solutions in transport and other industrial sectors.

Also by 2035 the Hyundai range will be completely electrified, with the range consisting only of electric cars or ad hydrogen.

Hyundai hydrogen 2040 strategy

Further emphasizing its pioneering commitment to clean and sustainable energy for all types of mobility, the Group has unveiled unprecedented plans, which will see electrification of all new commercial vehicle models, with fuel cell or battery electric powertrains, as well the application of fuel cell systems to all models by 2028.

From 2035 Hyundai will have a range of electric or hydrogen cars

This strategy will place the Group at the forefront of the commercial vehicle sector, contributing to the process of redesigning the sector and achieving a clean sustainable future. Ever since the development of its first electric vehicle a fuel cells (FCEV), In the 1998, the Group is preparing for a hydrogen future.

In 2013 the ix35 Fuel Cell, which opened the door to the mass production of hydrogen vehicles. Then, in 2018, the company launched the next-generation fuel cell SUV NEXO, and in 2020 the world’s first fuel cell truck, XCIENT Fuel Cell.

By 2040, according to Hyundai, the diffusion of hydrogen will be total

Hyundai Motor Group’s vision predicts that by 2040 hydrogen energy will be used not only for transport, but will also be applied to wider areas of different industries and sectors. The Group aims to make hydrogen energy available for “Everyone, Everything and Everywhere”.

To achieve this, the Group is planning to introduce a new generation fuel cell system, which contributes to the goal of lowering the price of hydrogen cars, whatever comparable to that of an electric vehicle battery powered by 2030.

Stack of third generation fuel cells

During the Hydrogen Wave, Hyundai Motor Group unveiled a number of new fuel cell systems, including a new prototype of the third generation fuel cell stack. Currently under development, the third generation fuel cell stack will succeed the current fuel cell stack NEXO.

New Hyundai fuel cells, features

Hyundai illustrated the main features of the new fuel cells, available in two versions: 100 kW and 200 kW. The stack from 100 kW it has been reduced in size by as much as 30% to make it easier to apply to different vehicle types and applications. The 200 kW version has been designed for applications on commercial vehicles and is similar in size to the current NEXO system, but the power output has doubled.

For the 2018 second-generation NEXO fuel cell stack, the company has achieved 5,000 hours and 160,000 kilometers of use, which is similar to the warranty of an ICE vehicle. For the development of the third generation of fuel cells, the goal is to improve service life by 50-100%. Long-life batteries for commercial vehicles will catch up 500,000 kilometers of autonomy. Furthermore, the price of third-generation fuel cell cells will be drastically reduced, with projections exceeding 50%.

Third generation fuel cell of 100 or 200 kW

Furthermore, the third generation system can find different applications. A new “Power Unit Module” can offer a range of power output from 500 kW to 1 MW stacking 100kW modular units, ideal for use as an emergency power system for large ships or IT companies.

An innovative ‘Full-flat’ fuel cell system has also been revealed which lowers the stack height to 25cm, and can be used for various applications such as PBVs, MPVs, buses and trams, by mounting the system on the upper or lower bodywork of the vehicle.

Concept hydrogen vehicle for container transport

Under the HWTO brand dedicated to fuel cells, the Group is also presenting new concepts for refueling facilities of portable hydrogen.

The concept Trailer Drone is a system of container transport powered by hydrogen capable of fully functioning autonomous, with more 1,000 km of range on a single charge. In addition to propulsion, a new way of moving has been redefined. For this purpose, they developed the ‘Fuel Cell e-Bogie’.

The term ‘bogie’ originates in the railway industry. THE railway bogies they are under wheel frames that are located under each carriage of the train.

The e-Bogie Fuel Cell sits underneath the container just like a railway bogie and is a fully enclosed system with fuel cell propulsion and four-wheel steering completely independent. The Trailer Drone can thus move autonomously through port operations And confined urban environments.

Hyundai Vision FK hydrogen sports car

Fuel cell technology is equally applicable to high performance vehicles. In this regard, Hyundai Motor Group presented a sports car concept hydrogen powered hybrid called Vision FK. With a maximum power of over 500 kW, the Vision FK concept can accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in less than 4 seconds.

By combining a fuel cell energy converter with a high horsepower plug-in powertrain with RWD system, the Vision FK can achieve beyond 600 kilometers of autonomy.

Rescue Drone with hydrogen in case of emergency

The Rescue Drone is a newly developed mobility solution that combines with a e-Bogie fuel cell to create a flying drone which can be operated by remote and autonomously for critical operations such as firefighting and rescue operations.

The Rescue Drone is equipped with a independent steering for on-site rotation and a “crab-walk” guide. It can also carry out missions through images transmitted by drones mounted on the outside of the vehicle and reaches a range 450 to 500 kilometers on a single charge.

Mobile hydrogen dispenser

There H Moving Station is a heavy vehicle equipped with charging facilities for hydrogen vehicles. This portable hydrogen refueling station offers convenience and refilling options in areas with limited hydrogen refueling stations.
