10 Jul 2020 | International News : Korea

Hyundai is showcasing its hydrogen and mobility solutions at the H2 Mobility+Energy Show 2020 in Korea on 1 July 2020 to 3 July 2020.

The hydrogen-powered heavy-duty truck HDC-6 Neptune Concept, mobile fuel cell generator, and a scale model of its smart mobility ecosystem will be on display.

Hyundai plans to launch HDC-6 Neptune within the next three to four years with an improved fuel cell system
The inaugural H2 Mobility+Energy Show provides a comprehensive look into the global hydrogen industry ecosystem, from hydrogen production and storage to transportation and mobility.

The show marks the Korea premiere of HDC-6 Neptune, Hyundai's hydrogen-powered fuel cell electric truck concept, which debuted at the North American Commercial Vehicle Show in October 2019.

One of the key design inspirations for the HDC-6 Neptune Concept was New York's iconic streamliner railway trains of the 1930s, one of the greatest technological advances of the early 20th Century.

The HDC-6 Neptune employs a solid structure with a smooth and rounded front design to create an entirely unique frame for the hydrogen-powered electric truck. The HDC-6 Neptune will lead the transition into an eco-friendly commercial vehicle era. Hyundai plans to launch the HDC-6 Neptune by developing an enhanced fuel cell system with high durability and power, optimised for heavy-duty trucks within the next three to four years.

Hyundai is also presenting its mobile fuel cell generator at the event, hinting at the possibility of fuel cell systems expanding usage to various industries. Hyundai's mobile fuel cell generator utilises two fuel cell stacks also used in Nexo, the world's first dedicated Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV), generating a maximum output of 215bhp.

The abundant power allows the generator to be used for various applications, such as charging two electriv vehicles simultaneously, or electric buses and trucks. The mobile fuel cell generator is taking shape as a clean alternative to diesel generators.

Also on display is the industry-leading FCEV Nexo with a range of 609km on a single charge. Launched in 2018, Nexo recorded nearly 5,000 units sold in 2019, leading global FCEV sales.

The company is exhibiting a 1:8-scale model of its smart mobility ecosystem with Urban Air Mobility (UAM), Purpose Built Vehicles (PBV) and Mobility Transit Base (Hub) that was first seen at Consumer Electric Show 2020. The scale model is a miniature demonstrating Hyundai's vision of a future mobility ecosystem where UAM, PBV and Hub are integrated by design.
