Genesis, the luxury department of Hyundai, is using the platform of the New York International Auto Show to display the GV80, a hydrogen fuel cell concept SUV.
Pictures for the new machine, which seem practically photoshopped, depict an elegant, four-door SUV that appears like a pumped-up Genesis G80.
Genesis regards the GV80 the brand’s “first interpretation of a versatile luxury SUV,” integrating a roomy, elegant interior with athletic capability. The outcome is an automobile “skillfully developed to satisfy the needs and check out the escapes of the city adventure,” the company stated.
It was rather coy on the innovation, and revealed little amount of details on the drive train elements.
But press materials recommend the GV80, unlike present fuel cell cars such as Toyota’s Mirai, Honda’s Clarity or Hyundai’s own Tucson, is a plug-in version, using stored electric power together with on-board compressed hydrogen for its propulsion.
The New York International Auto Show’s press days start this week. The show is going to be opened to the public from April 14-23 at Manhattan’s Jacob Javits Convention Center.
