Hyundai is one of the first manufacturers to offer a hydrogen-fuelled car in Europe. Now, it is also the first manufacturer who has a hydrogen car tested by EuroNCAP. It was awarded five stars.

Hyundai’s second-generation fuel cell electric vehicle demonstrated its high active and passive safety in all four Euro NCAP rating categories. The top-level performance, achieved through extensive safety equipment and high chassis rigidity, demonstrates how NEXO protects its passengers and other road users. It is the first fuel cell electric vehicle to be awarded the maximum five-star overall rating by Euro NCAP.

To comply with the highest European safety standards, the All-New NEXO features the latest Hyundai SmartSense active safety and driving assistance technologies.

Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) with Pedestrian Detection was rigorously tested in the Euro NCAP. This system is one of the many advanced active safety features, alerting drivers to emergency situations and braking automatically if required. Using front radar and camera sensors, FCA operates in three stages. Warning the driver visually and acoustically, it controls the brake according to the collision danger level, and applies maximum braking force to avoid a collision or minimise damage when a collision is unavoidable.

The Lane Keeping Assist system also received a top-rating in the Euro NCAP testing. It is enhanced by the standard-fit Lane Following Assist, which keeps the car in the middle of the lane and alerts the driver in case of any unsafe movements at a speed from 0 to 150 km/h.

In recent years Hyundai cars have regularly received the top Euro NCAP safety rating. Among others, Hyundai’s i30, Kona, Tucson, Santa Fe and IONIQ all received the maximum five-star rating in the assessment programme.
