Hyundai Blue2 shows electric dreams

The electric system that powers Blue2 delivers 90kW and hydrogen fuel economy of 2.8L/100km.

Electric vehicles with battery power are all the rage but Hyundai will show that the fuel-cell electric vehicle is far from forgotten.

It will use the Melbourne show to display its concept car, Blue2 pronounced blue-squared and codenamed HND-6 a mid-sized sedan that will shape future Hyundai models.

Hyundai’s continuing development of fuel-cell propulsion is shared by Honda, with its Clarity sedan now on trial in the US, and the Mercedes-Benz F-Cell, a fuel-cell version of the B-Class that just completed a 30,000km, 70-day round-the-world drive to demonstrate its ability to be a viable alternative to conventional electric vehicles and internal-combustion cars.

Hyundai says it is aiming at gaining early leadership of the fuel-cell electric vehicle (FCEV) market. The electric system that powers Blue2 delivers 90kW and hydrogen fuel economy of 2.8L/100km. Wrapped in an aerodynamic shell, the Blue2 also has low-resistance tyres and alloy wheels to minimise air drag.

Along with its low emissions and fuel efficiency, the concept car uses eco-friendly materials. It also has roof and side-mounted cameras to replace conventional side mirrors; has a welcome system that recognises the driver; and an automatic opening door system for driver convenience. The infotainment system is operated by a motion sensor that responds to the driver’s touch and hand movements.

Closer to the Australian showroom are four new Hyundai models. They include the asymmetrically-styled coupe, the Veloster, which was recently shown in Australia but won’t go on sale until later in the year. The long-awaited Elantra goes on sale and follows the styling cues of the ix35 SUV and the i45 sedan.

Planned to go on sale in the third quarter of this year, the Elantra will sit between the new Accent and the i45 and become a vital car for Hyundai in Australia’s booming small-car sector. The Elantra sedan is powered by a new direct-injected 102kW/166Nm 1.6-litre petrol engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.

Beneath the Elantra in the Hyundai range is the four-door Accent. Based on the i20 hatchback and using the same 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre engine choices, the Accent is also due for launch in the third quarter of the year. Hyundai shows that the market for station wagons remains solid with the Australian debut of the European-designed i40 wagon.

It goes on sale here later this year.

To show the breadth of Hyundai’s marketing and styling, the company will display its Veloster coupe which also goes on sale this year. The unusual coupe has one driver’s door plus two doors on the left side for passenger convenience. It is powered by the same 1.6-litre engine as the Elantra, but boasts a new six-speed dual-clutch transmission.
