Review of the 2021 Hyundai Nexo


Environmentally friendly driving has gone next level! Introducing the 2021 Hyundai Nexo, science fiction brought to life in one amazing compact SUV. The 2021 Hyundai Nexo, the automaker's hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle, has bridged the gap between powerful, affordable combustion-engine vehicles and emissions-free electrified vehicles. 
Curious? We invite you to explore the magic of hydrogen fuel cell vehicle technology and learn about the future of vehicle electrification. Visit us here in Orangeville at Orangeville Hyundai to discover the latest in electrified vehicles and their cutting-edge technology. While you are visiting, our team will be pleased to show you all the great features found in the 2021 Hyundai Nexo or even put you behind the wheel for an exhilarating test drive. Serving the Orangeville, Caledon, Collingwood, Newmarket, and Brampton regions and beyond, Orangeville Hyundai is your trusted Hyundai location for quality sales, service, and parts. 
Unlike other electrified vehicles, it is easy to travel long distances in the 2021 Hyundai Nexo. The Nexo refuels at a hydrogen station in a mere five minutes, eliminating long recharging breaks during your travels. Since the 2021 Nexo can go as far as 600 km on the highway, perhaps eliminating mid-journey refueling stops altogether.
The FWD 2021 Nexo may make you forget that you're behind the wheel of an environmentally friendly vehicle. It feels incredibly fast thanks to its instant torque of 291 lb-ft, offers responsive handling, and a quiet drive.
Unlike other alternative-fuel vehicles, the 2021 Hyundai Nexo requires no charging of electricity, utilizing hydrogen fuel cells instead. The Nexo's fuel cell converts hydrogen into electricity to power its electric motor. The hydrogen is stored in three tanks, two found below the rear seats and a third behind the vehicle's rear axle. Passing through an assemblage of membranes, the hydrogen reacts with oxygen to produce water and electricity. This in turn powers a 95-kW fuel-cell stack and 40 kW lithium-ion battery. Emitting no hydrocarbon emissions, the Nexo filters and purifies the air as it drives, giving off only water and purified air and minimizing your carbon footprint. 
Eschewing the "futuristic" egg-shaped styling that some of its electrified rivals are afflicted with, the 2021 Hyundai Nexo makes a great first impression with its stylish, mainstream looks. Taking up a similar amount of space as that of a 4-cylinder engine, the Nexo's fuel-cell technology required no major redesign of the engine or passenger compartment. The interior is spacious with plenty of room for all, and the Nexo offers a generously sized cargo area for everyone's belongings. Most of the Nexo's rivals are sedans, so this utility vehicle offers numerous other advantages, including a high line of sight. 
With the launch of the Nexo, Hyundai is the first automaker to offer a hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle available for sale to the public in Canada, proving the automaker's commitment to compromise-free sustainable motoring technology. With few rivals, Hyundai is a pioneer in this growing segment, leading the pack when it comes to fuel cell vehicle technology in Canada. 
Hyundai is also using the Nexo compact SUV to showcase its other new technologies. These include several light detection and ranging (LIDAR) systems, as well as an increase in processing power, among others. Once self-driving cars become a reality in Canada, each of these cutting-edge technologies will become necessary to their success. 
Jam-packed with state-of-the-art technology, you'll discover that the 2021 Hyundai Nexo is brimming with comforts and conveniences, as well as connectivity and safety features. Loaded with far more than simply the essentials, the Nexo comes with features that are designed to make life a little easier on the road and keep you safer. Enjoy plenty of space for five to rest comfortably in the Nexo's roomy cabin and create additional cargo space by folding down its rear seats. You're also sure to love the Nexo's unique two-spoke steering wheel, a digital instrument panel and push-button transmission controls.
Chosen as a Top Safety Pick+ by the IIHS, the Nexo is one of the safest vehicles on the road today. You'll breathe easy knowing that lane-following assist, automated cruise control, and a camera-based blind-spot monitor are at your back.
In Canada, the 2021 Hyundai Nexo is offered in the Ultimate trim. Overflowing with gadgets and gizmos, you are sure to love its lineup of features. This package includes a pair of LCD monitors in the front, as well as a 12.3-inch colour touchscreen with onboard navigation, Apple CarPlay & Android Auto smartphone integration, USB ports, and more. 
As if the 2021 Hyundai Nexo was engineered with Canadians in mind, the vehicle has been proven to start at temperatures dipping as low as -30 degrees, without suffering a loss of range. Finally, an eco-conscious vehicle designed for Canadian winters!
