The South Korean manufacturer plans to introduce 14 or more new "environmentally-focused" models by 2020.

WHILE OTHER CAR MAKERS are running headlong towards electric vehicles, the unveiling of the Hyundai FE Fuel Cell Concept reaffirms the brand's commitment to hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.

The hydrogen fuel-cell technology and elements of the design previewed by the FE Fuel Cell Concept will be refined for a production SUV Fuel Cell, which Hyundai says will be ready for launch in 2018. The FE Fuel Cell Concept represents the next step for Hyundai Motor toward realizing its ultimate ambition of creating a zero-emission Hydrogen Energy Society.

Part of that move was joining the Hydrogen Council earlier this year, which is dedicated to promoting the development and commercialization of fuel cell cars.

The company says the FE's hydrogen powertrain is 20 percent lighter, 10 percent more efficient, and produces more power from its fuel-cell stack.

Hyundai Motor has a heritage of building innovative, fuel-efficient vehicles that advance the automotive industry's environmental progress.

The Geneva press conference began with a video interviewing Grant Twiggy Baker, WSL Big Wave World Champion, who emphasized the theme of water-a smart choice for Hyundai's influential Fluidic Sculpture design philosophy. Not only that, but power density of the fuel cell is said to be 30% better, helping boost its range to 497 miles.

The FE's hydrogen fuel cell technology towers over the Tucson Fuel Cell.

The concept vehicle includes an internal air humidifier that recycles water emitted by the car's fuel cell - it combines hydrogen and oxygen to make electricity used to power the electric motor, and water - creating a more comfortable cabin environment.

The battery pack is removable and is offered to charge external devices while an electric scooter in its boot indicates that the auto is set to attract a more adventurous segment of buyers.

Created to be as aerodynamic as possible, the FE Fuel Cell Concept has innovative features to aid efficiency, including a rear aerofoil and integrated vents to improve airflow around the auto. An integrated storage and charging space for an electric scooter is located in the trunk for "last mile" transportation. There are plans for more hydrogen refuelling stations by 2020, with journeys from Los Angeles to San Francisco now very attainable.
