2018 Hyundai NEXO – Next-Generation Fuel Cell SUV. 2018 Hyundai NEXO Concept – Interior and Exterior.
The all-new NEXO is characterized by a pure and calm design emphasizing its streamlined silhouette and a floating roof. A pure shape engineered to be efficient, yet beautiful, reflecting the style of an SUV.
The seamless front appears wide and clearly defined with composite horizontal full LED daytime running lights. The headlamps are linked by a continuous, thin line of light underlining the elegant and horizontal front layout. Triangular fog lights below the headlamps emphasize the progressive character of the car. Hyundai’s signature Cascading Grille has been widened to increase the air intake, rounding off the strong visual impact of the front.
The seamless design continues over the side to the rear. The thin, floating roof is emphasized by the large daylight opening and slim D-pillar that runs into the rear spoiler. The rear features an almost triangular shaped window that wraps to the side and a long, prominent spoiler with an integrated rear wiper creating a distinct look. The triangular design of the rear headlamps combined with the horizontal layout of the rear gives the car a strong stance.
NEXO is the first Hyundai vehicle with integrated flush door handles. This special handle accomplishes a clean design of the car’s side and improves the airflow. Drivers can opt for automatic deployment of the door handles, either for the driver’s door or for all four doors. The mechanism is automatically deployed after five seconds when the car is started. When the car decelerates to 3 km/h, the handles retract automatically.
