Hyundai Unveils Next-Gen FCEV Blue Concept Sedan
In brief: Hyundai has unveiled their latest concept vehicle, a fuel cell electric vehicle called the Blue2 (Blue Squared).
Vehicle in the news
The vehicle is a second-generation concept based on last year's Blue-Will PHEV. The design and body style of the Blue2 are much the same, but this newer iteration sports a fuel cell-based powertrain.
The Seoul Motor Show opened with Hyundai, South Korea's crown jewel of auto manufacture, showing off both this FCEV concept and the new gasoline-hybrid electric Sonata Hybrid for the Korean market.
The Blue2 was code-named HND-6 and is a mid-sized sedan which Hyundai says is a blueprint for future sedan designs, as was the Blue-Will before this.
The Blue2 sports a 90kW fuel cell stack with a fuel economy of 34.9km/L of hydrogen. The tires and wheels go with the body style's improvements in aerodynamics while the interior sports many eco-friendly and recycled (or able) materials.
And so ...
Very cool concept. Hyundai plans to introduce fuel cells to market in the next two to three years.
