The NEXO is the first production fuel cell vehicle to be crash tested by the IIHS.
Hyundai recently announced that their NEXO hydrogen fuel cell SUV has earned a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
To qualify for a 2019 TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating a vehicle must earn “good” ratings in the driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests. It also needs an advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention and a good headlight rating.
“Hyundai and its engineering team continue to make vehicles even safer with the addition of active standard safety features, prioritizing cutting-edge safety and convenience at the forefront of the driving experience,” said Scott Margason, Director, Product Planning, Hyundai Motor America. “Our NEXO further emphasizes this priority on safety, with generous driver-assistance technologies and excellent passenger protection in a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle.”
