The i-Blue Concept is a hydrogen-powered, zero-emission vehicle developed at Hyundai’s Design and Technical Centre in Chiba, Japan. According to the automaker it represents "a significant step towards commercialisation of hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicles."
Unlike its predecessors, which were built on SUV platforms, the i-Blue is a new D-segment 2+2 crossover utility vehicle (CUV).
“The i-Blue is Hyundai’s first-ever model designed from the ground up to incorporate fuel cell technology, marking a tremendous leap forward for our R&D program,” said Dr Hyun-Soon Lee, President of Research and Development.
“Our engineering team has successfully designed a more compact fuel cell vehicle, while still realising the safety, comfort, convenience and driving range of a traditional internal combustion engine vehicle.”
