Hyundai plans to massify its hydrogen cars by 2028 | Digital Trends Spanish

Hyundai has a plan to make its vehicles of the future much more sustainable. And for this, the South Korean manufacturer has announced that in 2028 all its commercial and passenger cars will have versions that use liquid hydrogen as fuel.

According to Saehoon kim, executive vice president of Hyundai Motor Group, the company expects that by the end of the decade, in the year 2030, hydrogen-powered vehicles will be priced similar to those of electric vehicles with traditional technology.

To do this, Hyundai continues to investigate the use of technology and also announced that in 2023 they intend to launch a new type of hydrogen batteries, corresponding to the third generation of them and that will be present in commercial and passenger vehicles.

This battery technology uses liquid hydrogen to fill vehicle fuel cells; in turn, these cells generate electrical energy. And precisely Hyundai already has a couple of hydrogen-powered models: one of them is the so-called Nexo, an SUV-type car.


In addition, Hyundai introduced a new sports car called the Vision FK, which uses liquid hydrogen in 500kW fuel cells that allow it to reach 100 kilometers per hour (62 miles per hour) in just four seconds. Meanwhile, its range is 600 kilometers (374 miles).

Hyundai is just one of the companies that are working with liquid hydrogen for fuel. Recently, the French manufacturer Hopium presented a model called Machina, whose design is very particular. The Machina can reach 230 kilometers per hour (143 miles per hour) and has a range of 1,000 kilometers (or 620 miles).

In addition to Hopium and Hyundai, Toyota and Honda also produce vehicles powered by liquid hydrogen, although never leaving aside their more traditional electric cars.
