Commuters could soon be taken to work in a driverless car which is so clean they could relax on the journey with a cup of tea – brewed using water from the tailpipe.
The state-of-the-art Hyundai Nexo is a crossover SUV vehicle which runs on electrical energy generated by hydrogen fuel cells.
Unlike traditional combustion engines, hydrogen cars don’t emit carbon dioxide or nitrous oxide so its only by-product is water vapour.
The water produced by Nexo could even be stored and used later to pour on plants or even used to make a cup of tea or coffee.
Hyundai has also just showcased its ‘level 4’ autonomous driving technology using Nexo as the test bed.
