Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The hydrogen-fueled Nexo is Hyundai’s eco-friendly flagship, packed with state-of-the-art tech. Its 95-kW fuel cell and 40-kW battery power an electric motor that makes 291 lb-ft of torque. Although the crossover is slow (a claimed zero to 60 mph in 9.5 seconds), its estimated range is an impressive 370 miles. However, the Nexo will be sold only in California when it launches in late 2018. High-tech features include advanced blind-spot monitoring, semi-autonomous assists, and remote parking.

Pros
Quiet operation,
usable range, but . . .

Cons
. . . nowhere to go because there is no hydrogen refueling infrastructure in the U.S., still expensive technology.
