model highlights

The NEXO will be sold only in California, the only market sufficiently infrastructured to keep the NEXO fueled with hydrogen.

While Hyundai's last fuel-cell vehicle was based on the Tucson, Hyundai decided to give such model its own platform, with its own unique styling and interior. The NEXO's fuel-cell system is the second such powertrain from Hyundai. The automaker claims the NEXO has a better range than before, up to 370 miles.

The NEXO comes in two different configurations, the base model dubbed Blue, as well as a more upscale Limited trim level. NEXO Blue models come standard with 17-inch alloy wheels, LED automatic headlights and daytime running lights, puddle lights, LED brake lights, heated mirrors with LED turn signal indicators and a hands-free liftgate. Inside, standard features include an 8-way, power adjustable driver's seat, a 6-way power adjustable passenger seat, heated front seats, leatherette seating surfaces, a 12.3-inch touchscreen, Android auto and Apple CarPlay integration, Sirius XM Satellite radio, an USB input jack, power windows and door locks, Bluetooth controls located on the steering wheel and dual-zone automatic temperature controls.

The Limited trim adds 19-inch wheels, a power sunroof, a heated steering wheel, a remote starter, a Krell 440-watt premium sound system, roof rails, a blind spot monitor, rain-sensing wipers and rear parking sensors.

Standard safety features on the NEXO include driver, passenger, side impact and curtain airbags, stability control and traction control systems, a forward collision avoidance assist system, blind spot warning lights, a lane-keep assist system, a rearview monitor, automatic high beams and an automatic cruise control system that is capable of operating in stop and go traffic.

model news

The 2020 Hyundai NEXO heads into its second year with just a few updates. The entry-level Blue model receives a standard cargo cover and rear privacy glass, while Limited versions get new rain-sensing wipers.

value writeup

The NEXO is one of the few hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles and the only SUV available in North America. Green credibility at this level is hard to come by, but Hyundai makes it affordable at prices around $30,000 less than a Tesla Model X. The NEXO also allows much faster refueling than any electric vehicle plus excellent range of nearly 400 miles on a tank.
