Zero Emissions and Very Fast

Hyundai has a Hydrogen Vision 2040 plan to offer in its commercial fleet only hydrogen fuel cell vehicles by 2040. As it develops its hydrogen technology system across its portfolio, it has just unveiled a 670 horsepower fuel cell plug-in hybrid sports car - the Vision FK concept. This vehicle combines plug-in electric vehicle power with hydrogen fuel cell technology.  A full recharge takes only 5 minutes.  The photos of this exciting concept are camouflaged but it looks sleek and very fast with intake openings to increase speed where the rear doors should be. It is a very promising, zero emissions work in progress.

Tech Specs

The vehicle combines zero emissions with a lot of power.  There is a 500-kilowatt dual motor powertrain.  Each rear wheel has a motor. The EV accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in less than 4 seconds.  A plug in hybrid, hydrogen fuel cell system provides the juice to the electric powertrain.  The system is backed up with a big plug-in battery pack. Additionally, Hyundai's 3rd generation fuel cell stack serves as a generator maintaining the battery's charge.  The generator uses hydrogen from the EV's two hydrogen cylindrical tanks and can keep on re-charging until the hydrogen runs out.

372 Miles of Zero Emissions Driving

A full charge with the hydrogen tanks topped off provides 372 miles of range for the EV.  If you run out of energy, incredibly the recharge takes 5 minutes.  There is no timeline on the production of this vehicle.  But Hyundai is forging ahead with its hydrogen powered vehicles, including in 2023 when it will unveil a hydrogen version of its very popular Staria MPV.  To take a look at one of Edward Kane's latest books on new vehicle concepts, go to  I co-authored the book with Ed.
