Should you buy a Hyundai Nexo?

Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles are right on the cusp of breaking into the mainstream. Infrastructure is growing and cars like the Nexo will be in a great position to capitalise on an increased network of hydroen filling stations, should they come to pass as promised.

Its biggest current problems are that buyers will need to live or work in close proximity to locations that do have them, and that the list price will be prohibitively expensive for most. Plus, just a handful will be available in the UK to start off with due to demand.

However, this can be off-set by leasing or other finance arrangements, and some businesses with particularly large fleets may be able to build a business case to fund their own hydrogen filling points. As the network grows, the viability of cars like the Nexo is enhanced and subsequently costs should fall.

As a piece of technology though, the Nexo is very impressive, and the fact it’s a user-friendly experience with a unique look and feel inside and out makes it even more appealing.
