New Hyundai range covers all fuel types
In a rapidly evolving automotive environment fleet owners are confronted with difficult choices when setting up an ecologically and economically optimised car policy. Hyundai’s complete model range covers all fuel types so fleet owners are guaranteed to find the best solution.
No other manufacturer in the world offers the same range of eco-friendly powertrains Hyundai does. With its current range of models and fuel types, the Korean brand is years ahead of its direct competitors, leaving no technology unused in order to respond to every fleet’s needs.
Hyundai’s quest for the integration of environmentally friendly drivetrain technologies in their model range is not new. The manufacturer has been offering a great number of alternative drivetrains throughout the last decade, culminating in the current model range that consists of vehicles with petrol or diesel engines, full hybrids, plug-in hybrids, battery-electric vehicles and even a fuel-cell hydrogen car.
Three years ago, in 2016, the IONIQ was the world’s first vehicle to be offered in three different electrified powertrains: hybrid, plug-in hybrid and battery electric. Drastically reducing or even completely avoiding any CO2-emissions, these drivetrains perfectly fit the needs of today’s car fleets that – more than ever before - base their car choices on TCO calculations rather than leasing prices. Thanks to the particularly interesting taxation of all three electrified IONIQ-models, combined with Hyundai’s very competitive model pricing, the success of the mid-size Hyundai is undeniable.
For Hyundai, ecology goes beyond reducing emissions. One of the key characteristics of the IONIQ is the use of recycled and eco-friendly materials, making it more durable and sustainable, a tendency that is welcomed by fleet owners all over Europe.
Hyundai’s technological advance does not stop with the IONIQ, because with the Kona Electric, a second electric model was launched last year. It is the first fully electric subcompact SUV in Europe, combining electric mobility with the ever-popular SUV body type. And for those who wish to combine electric and petrol power, a brand-new full hybrid powertrain is now available on the Kona.
NEXO fuell cell
While most other carmakers still have to introduce their first battery-electric vehicle, Hyundai recently launched the NEXO, its second fuel-cell model, that succeeds the pioneering iX35 Fuel Cell, which, at its launch in 2013, was the first commercially mass-produced hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle in the world.
Without harmful emissions and water vapour as the only by-product, hydrogen fuel-cell drivetrains are the future of mobility. A future that already is the present at Hyundai.
By 2025, Hyundai will produce no less than 44 electrified models as part of its commitment to clean mobility.
