Hyundai NEXO 5-star NCAP Winner Banner

Hyundai NEXO becomes first fuel cell electric vehicle to achieve 5-star Euro NCAP rating​

The All-New Hyundai NEXO has achieved the maximum five-star overall rating from Euro NCAP, the independent vehicle assessment organisation, becoming the first fuel cell electric vehicle to do so.

The second-generation electric vehicle demonstrated its impressive levels of active and passive safety in all four rating categories. The top-level performance clearly demonstrates how NEXO protects its passengers and other road users, with extensive safety equipment and high chassis rigidity. The NEXO joins a number of Hyundai models that have received the maximum five-star rating in the assessment programme, including the i30, Kona, Tucson, Santa Fe and IONIQ, which further highlights Hyundai’s safety and reliability credentials

To comply with the highest European safety standards, the All-New NEXO features the latest Hyundai SmartSense active safety and driving assistance technologies – including Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) with Pedestrian Detection and Lane Keeping Assist. These features help to significantly lower the risk of collisions and also increase comfort on board the NEXO.

Andreas-Christoph Hofmann, Vice President Marketing and Product, Hyundai Motor Europe HQ, said: “The five-star rating of NEXO in the Euro NCAP assessment is further evidence of our industry-leading position in the field of future mobility. We are not only a pioneer in bringing future mobility onto the streets, but our cars are also among the safest. The Euro NCAP rating confirms our commitment to provide customers and other road users with the highest level of safety and innovative mobility solutions.”
