Fuel cell explained
Water, innovation and safety.
When you drive, the hydrogen travels from the tanks to the fuel-cell stack. There it goes through an electrochemical reaction with oxygen collected from the air intake. This creates electricity, which powers the motor, and water.
Inside the fuel cell, hydrogen atoms are split into protons and electrons. The electrons flow to the electric motor, which is what powers Nexo. The electrons then return to the fuel cell where they and the protons recombine with oxygen to form water.
As a fuel source, hydrogen is as safe as gasoline – if not safer. And to ensure the utmost safety, the fuel is stored inside incredibly durable carbon-fiber tanks, tested to withstand extremes of both heat and pressure. Because the tanks are highly pressurized and hydrogen is 16 times lighter than air, the fuel would instantaneously dissipate into the atmosphere if a tank was punctured.

Frequently Answered Questions
Can I get the Nexo if I live outside California?
  • Currently, the Nexo is only available in California. Sign up at the bottom of this page to get updates regarding availability in your area.
Do I have to apply to be able to lease or purchase a Nexo?
  • Not at all. Simply contact or visit one of the California dealers where the Nexo is available. Please see dealer contact information below.
What happens if I run out of fuel?
  • Call Hyundai's 24/7 Roadside Assistance - 1-800-243-7766 - and you'll be towed to the nearest hydrogen fuel station.
What are the differences between fuel-cell, electric battery and plug-in hybrid vehicles?
  • All three vehicles use electric drive motors, but there are differences in how they operate.
  • Fuel-cell vehicles use gaseous hydrogen from the fuel tank and oxygen from the air intakes to generate electricity for the motor through an electrochemical reaction.
  • An electric-battery vehicle gets its electricity entirely from batteries, which are recharged through a power outlet.
  • Plug-in hybrids have a battery that also uses a power outlet, which allows you to drive in all-electric mode. But it has a gas engine as well, so you can drive using both sources of energy.
How do I refuel the Nexo?
  • Fueling a Nexo is virtually the same as pumping gas. And it takes about the same amount of time: up to five minutes.
