Latest News: High Wycombe, 14th January – Hyundai Motor UK has officially announced the pricing and specification of the i30 Fastback N, which will go on sale in the UK on 21 January. The i30 Fastback N is Hyundai’s second performance model for Europe, engineered by the Company’s dedicated High Performance Vehicle Division. It is the first five-door hot coupe in the C segment and combines the sophisticated and elegant design of the i30 Fastback with the exhilarating performance and fun-to-drive characteristics of the i30 N Hatchback. Priced at £29,995 on the road, the i30 Fastback N is available as a standalone model powered by the 2.0-litre T-GDi engine, which pushes 275PS & 353Nm torque through the electronically controlled limited slip differential. The chassis performance of the Fastback N has been enhanced, with refinements made to the suspension in terms of settings and material changes to further improve dynamic performance whilst also improving ride quality and comfort. As well as the distinctive body shape, the i30 Fastback N features a number of bespoke exterior features which differentiate it from the hatchback, including the N signature triangular lamp used as a fog lamp on the diffuser and a reflective character line on the rear bumper. Interior visual changes for the Fastback N include red stitching to the heated leather and suede seats and the heated leather steering wheel. Red stitching is also used to detail the gear lever, applied to the gear lever gaiter and gear lever itself, which also incorporates a red feature stripe and N logo. Interior detailing is completed with red surrounds to the driver and passenger side air vents. i30 Fastback N also offers an array of performance equipment, including 19” alloy wheels with Pirelli P-Zero tyres that share the “Hyundai N” specific compound with the i30 N Hatchback, Electronical Limited Slip Differential and 345mm ventilated front brake discs with 300mm rear, Electronically Controlled Suspension and manually operated hand brake. Performance orientated equipment continues with the i30 Fastback N’s Torque Vectoring System and steering wheel mounted N drive mode buttons, where the driver can access and customise engine and suspension settings. Carried over from its hatchback sibling, the i30 Fastback N is also equipped with the Active Variable Exhaust System, allowing the vehicle to reveal its playful character when in N or Custom drive mode. Other equipment, shared with the i30 N Hatchback, includes Launch Control, Rev Match Function which eliminates the need for heel and toe gear changes and Brake Control knock back pre-fill to maximise braking response after high g-load cornering. As found elsewhere within the i30 range, the i30 Fastback N features a high level of standard specification including LED head and tail lights, cruise control, keyless entry with engine start/stop button and a standard 8” Touchscreen Satellite Navigation system, that includes Android Auto™ and Apple Car Play™, and the addition of N specific functions such as drive mode display, suspension, engine and transmission set up, lap timer, acceleration timer and performance gauges including engine torque, turbo boost and g force display. The i30 Fastback N’s instrument cluster is shared with the i30 N, using a 4.2” LCD to display a number of drive mode and vehicle control settings, shift timing lights and a variable LED tachometer, with a maximum engine rev light which adjusts according to engine temperature. The cluster also features soft blue lighting and the Hyundai N logo. The i30 Fastback N is available in 6 colours, including the all new Shadow Grey colour, which is specific to the Fastback N. Other colour choices available include the N signature colour Performance Blue, as well as Polar White, Micron Grey, Phantom Black and Engine Red. Ashley Andrew, Managing Director Hyundai Motor UK said, “The i30 N Hatchback surprised many at its launch and has quickly gone on to become an established performer in the hot hatch sector. The i30 Fastback N will cater for those wanting hot hatch performance but with a more distinctive and elegant style.” All i30 N models come with Hyundai’s industry leading 5 Year Unlimited Mileage Warranty, 5 Year Annual Health Check, Roadside Assistance and 12 Year Anti Corrosion Warranty.

NEXO: THE NEXT-GENERATION FUEL CELL VEHICLE FROM HYUNDAI

NEXO: THE NEXT-GENERATION FUEL CELL VEHICLE FROM HYUNDAI

Hyundai Motor have announced that NEXO will be the name of its all-new, dedicated Fuel Cell EV during a press conference at CES 2018, and disclosed Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) that expand its autonomous driving potential. NEXO is the technological flagship of Hyundai’s growing eco-vehicle portfolio and marks Hyundai’s continued momentum toward having the industry’s most diverse CUV powertrain lineup.

The NEXO model will spearhead Hyundai Motor’s plans to accelerate development of low emission vehicles, in line with Hyundai Motor Group’s renewed goal of introducing 18 eco-friendly models to global markets by 2025. This new development roadmap also represents the next step for Hyundai Motor towards realising the ultimate ambition of creating a cleaner environment through eco-friendly vehicles.

Blind-spot View Monitor (BVM)

Hyundai’s Blind-spot View Monitor is an industry-first technology. It shows drivers on a center cluster screen the rear and side views of NEXO using cameras while changing lanes in either direction. The system uses wide angle surround view monitors (SVM) on each side of the vehicle to monitor areas that cannot be seen by a traditional rearview mirror. Hyundai is the first automaker to provide drivers video footage from both sides of the vehicle.

Lane Following Assist (LFA) and Highway Driving Assist (HDA)

Lane Following Assist is an all-new technology for Hyundai and it debuts in the NEXO. LFA automatically adjusts steering to help keep NEXO centered in its lane of travel. LFA can keep NEXO centred at speeds between 0 and 90 miles per hour on both highways and city streets. When paired with Hyundai’s Highway Driving Assist (HDA) which utilizes sensors and map data to ensure safe operation as well as automatically adjust speed in limited environments, drivers will be able to traverse long distances with greater ease and improved safety.

Remote Smart Parking Assist (RSPA)

RSPA enables NEXO to autonomously park or retrieve itself from a parking space with or without a driver in the car. The RSPA system can even back a NEXO into a parking spot by itself with a touch of a button from the driver. When faced with any challenging parking scenario, NEXO drivers will be able to park with complete confidence and accuracy.

Hyundai NEXO

“Hydrogen energy is the key to building a more sustainable society. Hyundai Motor Company has already taken a lead in hydrogen technology with the introduction of the ix35 Fuel Cell,” said Dr. Woong-chul Yang, Vice Chairman, Hyundai Motor Company. “I am so proud to introduce to you our second-generation Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle which is a culmination of our cutting-edge technologies.”

NEXO is Hyundai’s second-generation of commercialised fuel cell electric vehicle that will be available in select markets around the world starting in early 2018. Improving upon the acclaimed ix35 FCEV, the NEXO has an estimated driving range of 500 miles (NEDC) – 134 miles more than its predecessor. Acceleration and power have increased to improve the overall performance.

Designed to handle extreme temperature and environments, the NEXO testing has proven that the vehicle is capable of starting after being subject to overnight temperatures of -20 degrees Fahrenheit. NEXO boasts cold start capability within 30 seconds which is an industry-leading achievement and the fuel cell system warms up faster for maximum performance. The NEXO also has excellent cooling performance on steep grades with temperatures exceeding 120 degree Fahrenheit.

Improvements in the air supply system, performance at high altitudes and refueling times, along with overall efficiency and fuel economy put the NEXO in a class all its own. In addition the NEXO has improved power density and durability comparable with petrol-powered vehicles.

Lighter weight
Improved power-to-weight ratio
Faster acceleration from 0 to 60 mph than the ix35 fuel cell
More cabin space
