Hyundai is stepping on the accelerator and is ready to bring in EV technology with its SUVs. SUVs are the most popular genre and that is the best way to introduce EVs in India. Hyundai will bring these two SUVs to India. The first one is the Kona Electric which is expected to be the first EV from Hyundai in India. The launch would happen in 2019.

The other SUV is the Nexo. The Nexo is a Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV). The Nexo has fuel cell technology and develops 161 bhp and 395 Nm. The Nexo a range of 609 kilometres on a single charge. Both these two SUVs would usher a new era for SUVs with green tag. Now it remains to be seen how they are priced and what is their positioning at first. Amongst the two the Kona EV would come to India earlier. Hyundai will also launch its much awaited new small car in October while it will also launch its compact SUV in India next year. Busy times for Hyundai then.
