Futuristic 2019 Hyundai Nexo Showcases the Company’s Technological Prowess

Hyundai’s Nexo stands out from the emerging wave of electric cars by being a limited-production fuel-cell vehicle—essentially an electric vehicle that produces its power onboard and has water as its only emission.

CR won’t be buying one for a formal test, given the Nexo’s limited availability (it’s sold in only California metro areas) and the sparse refueling infrastructure for hydrogen. Instead, we rented one from Hyundai.

We spent a couple of weeks driving the Nexo, and we’re impressed with its driving range, ride quality, and self-parking ability.
