HydrogenSolutions states that no technical specifications were disclosed with the design sketches. Anyway, he expects the vehicle to carry 8 kilograms of hydrogen, which would be enough for it to reach a range of up to 1,000 kilometers. The current NEXO has three hydrogen tanks that hold 156 liters of the gas, or 6.3 kg. If you consider the 140 liters and 5.6 kg the ix35 FCEV used to carry, there is always an evolution with each new generation. In that sense, 8 kg would not be such a stretch.
BMW is trying to develop a flat hydrogen tank with TesTneT Engineering GmbH and Hexagon Purus. If they pull it off, such a hydrogen tank could fit where electric vehicles have their battery packs. In other words, automakers could easily replace some battery modules with a hydrogen tank or even the entire battery pack. If Hyundai has anything similar to offer on the next-generation NEXO, it may use the E-GMP or even the IMA on the NEXO instead of developing a platform exclusively for its FCEVs. Whatever prevails in the long run, the Korean automaker will be prepared for it.
This should be the next generation NEXO - beautiful and just a big wow. Let‘s wait for technical features. May be 8kg H2 storage and with this up to 1k km range. pic.twitter.com/BkiSFCNxjh— HydrogenSolutions ???????? (@HydrogenSoluti1) September 14, 2022
