    Hyundai Hydrogen Wave event: what to expect

    The Korean brand has teased a camouflaged hydrogen-powered Hyundai saloon testing on a race circuit, with the caption "Hydrogen, it's full on toward a clean future". Although no details have been given, Hyundai has previously said that its N performance brand will develop both hydrogen fuel cell and battery-electric vehicles in the future. The car seen in the teaser has similarities with the US-only Veloster N, although it appears shorter and has a different design around the rear windows.

    Hyundai will also unveil new hydrogen products for freight and public transport usage. The teaser shows vehicles that feature the HTWO branding, Hyundai's recently established sub-brand that will develop its global fuel cell business.   

    Along with Toyota, the Hyundai Motor Group has continued to invest heavily in the development of hydrogen technology, for both transport and other uses. Hyundai says it is working on "exciting plans and business strategies for new hydrogen mobility technology, next-generation fuel cell systems and applications to diverse industries beyond automotive." 

    Hyundai has a long history of hydrogen fuel cell technology, including the ix35, Ioniq FCEV and Nexo FCV vehicles.

    Various Hyundai affiliate companies will also showcase products developed using the firm's hydrogen technology as part of the event.

    As far as alternative fuel vehicles go, the brand currently sells the Kona EV in India. There are talks of a mass-market EV for India in the future. However, there is no news on Hyundai's plans to introduce hydrogen-powered vehicles in our market anytime soon.
