Hyundai has detailed its new plan to strengthen hydrogen as an alternative source of energy, called Hydrogen Vision 2040. And it includes a powerful new sports car.
Called Vision FK, the concept car is a two-door coupe with a 500 kW power train, all sent to the rear axle.
This is actually more complicated than slotting a group of hydrogen tanks. What a stinger/ Birth G70 body, on which FK appears. Hyundai is not ready to share the most appropriate details but the FK plug connects the fuel cell energy converter with the power train, which is capable of reaching a range of more than 600 km.
The result of the car. Cooperation between Hyundai and Remake Which extends through the association to the Porsche, Bogati and Volkswagen groups.
* Hyundai manufactures hydrogen-powered sports cars.
* Hyundai announces first hydrogen fleet in Australia
* Sunday Drive: Hyundai i30 N Fast Back.
* First Drive Road Test Review: Hyundai Nexus.
The head of Hyundai said that although there is no final date for how long Vision FK can reach production, it is still being developed and “the future of mass-produced, hydrogen-powered, high It will become the basis of performance vehicles. ” Research and Development, Albert Bearman.
“Currently, fuel cell vehicles cannot compete with battery-powered electric vehicles,” Bearman added. However, this is not an admission of defeat.
“The potential of fuel cell technology has not yet been fully deployed,” he said.
To this extent, Hyundai is working. New 100 kW and 200 kW fuel cell system. It will be released in 2023, which will reduce costs by more than 50%, reduce the total package volume by 30% and double the existing power generation.
It aims to match the price of battery electric vehicles by 2030 and expand its line of commercial vehicles to include fuel cell options for each vehicle by 2028.
In addition, Hyundai is developing a ‘trailer drone’ concept, a hydrogen-powered container transport system capable of operating completely autonomously with a range of over 1000 km.
To do this, Hyundai created a new ‘e-boogie’, a fully enclosed subframe that sits at the bottom of the container with fuel cell propulsion and four-wheel steering.
The trailer drone uses two of these e-bogies to operate better. Capacity is further enhanced by ‘Cluster Mode’ which enables multiple trailer drones to travel together in a train-like setting.
A rescue drone is a flying drone / small four-wheeled vehicle that can be operated independently or remotely to assist in important tasks such as firefighting or rescue work. It has the ‘crab walk’, and the ability to move around on the spot.
The H Moving Station is a heavy duty vehicle equipped with charging facilities for FCEVs. This portable hydrogen refueling station ensures convenience as well as charging options in areas with limited hydrogen refueling stations.
Finally, the RHGV, or Rescue Hydrogen Generator Vehicle, provides vehicles in need of assistance in remote areas. It runs on hydrogen and can charge EVs with single phase 220 volts and three phase 380 volts power.
Other Hyundai Hydrogen vehicles include the M Vision Pop, a very small urban mobility vehicle. M.Vision 2Go, an FCEV near-range delivery vehicle; Nexo Minicar, a small hydrogen car for children, a third generation Nexo SUVA And an Xcient fuel cell tractor based on the ancient FCEV truck.
Vision 2040 Hyundai aims to increase hydrogen energy beyond transportation, including providing electricity and heating to buildings, urban energy sources and power plants.
