XCIENT Fuel Cell
The heart of the XCIENT Fuel Cell is its
powerful fuel cell —
a twin array of 90 kW
stacks - that delivers 180 kW of pure,
clean power and a driving range
of 400 km
with improved durability.
XCIENT Fuel Cell requires less time to
recharge, you’ll be back up and
running in a
short time. And it‘s safe.
The hydrogen storage tanks have
multiple levels of protection to
them against accidental crash and punctures.
And perhaps the most beautiful feature of all
is the fuel cell stack that
produces only a
single byproduct — pure H2O.
Pressurized hydrogen gas passes
through the fuel cell membrane,
where it reacts with oxygen to
create a chemical reaction that
produces electricity and pure H20
as its byproducts. Generating zero
pollutants, XCIENT Fuel Cell is a
good news for our planet.
in actual driving
XCIENT Fuel Cell’s driving range is
unrivaled among eco-friendly
trucks. You can drive confidently
all-day long knowing that XCIENT
Fuel Cell has been field-proven to
deliver over 400 km on a single charge.
any daily operation
XCIENT Fuel Cell makes daily
operation easier with its high
charging efficiency. Since charging
is done in short time and the stack
system generates electricity while
driving, refueling XCIENT Fuel Cell
is fast, convenient and simple.
As of March 2022, XCIENT Fuel Cell has logged over
3 million km in Switzerland without a single safety incident.
It is equipped with various safety systems including gas leak
detection systems for safe driving.
Hydrogen and Hyundai.
Progress for the future.
Take a big step into the future with Hyundai

the driving force behind our new and
revolutionary XCIENT Fuel Cell truck.
Hydrogen is the fuel of the future and is good
news for our planet: It‘s incomparably
safe, and renewable.
And best of all, hydrogen supplies are
making it the perfect

XCIENT Fuel Cell makes no compromises in safety matters.
Active and passive safety systems provide comprehensive, all-around protection.
The new ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) is the driver‘s best friend
that works proactively to keep you out of trouble.
In case of a rollover or the detection of a trace amount of hydrogen due to a gas leak,
solenoid valves are automatically actuated, shutting off the hydrogen gas supply
from the storage tank,
thereby preventing secondary accidents.
Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC)
On detecting wheel slippage, VDC stabilizes the vehicle by automatically regulating torque output and braking individual wheels, thus helping the driver maintain directional control and reducing the risk of a rollover.
Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA)
FCA automatically applies the brakes whenever it detects the risk of a collision with a pedestrian, vehicle, or cyclist.
Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
On detecting an unintentional lane departure, the system warns the driver by sending vibrations through the steering wheel.
Smart Cruise Control (SCC)
SCC maintains the speed preset by the driver and ensures that you are always a safe distance away from the vehicle ahead.
Easy Hill Start System (EHS)
EHS prevents the vehicle from rolling back when starting on steep slopes, providing safe and easy driving.
Improved crash safety
When the unavoidable does happen, power is automatically cut off to the high voltage cables, and the hydrogen tank is shut off to minimize the risk of electric shock and secondary events.
Ride the hydrogen wave.
