Hyundai NEXO FCV Event in South Korea

Justin Lewis

From February 8-11, 2018, Hyundai hosted an international delegation of fuel cell stakeholders in South Korea for a hands-on experience with NEXO, the automaker's newest hydrogen fuel cell vehicle (FCV). Among the attendees was Morry Markowitz, President of the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Energy Association. 

The delegation attended several of Hyundai's facilities and offices in Seoul, where they got to ride and drive NEXO, learn more details about the FCV's design and specifications, and discuss Hyundai's plans for the deployment of NEXO worldwide.

On the final day of the event, the delegation attended the Winter Olympics in the South Korean city of PyeongChang. While there, they visited Hyundai's "Hydrogen Pavilion," an immersive, interactive display that showcases hydrogen fuel cell technology to Olympics attendees.
