Hyundai may present in mid-January at the Detroit Motor Show hypercar with the power plant on hydrogen fuel cells. About this, with reference to the head of Hyundai N division Albert Birman reports the South Korean edition of Motograph.

“If not Hyundai makes a hydrogen supercar, then who? We are the company that has the most advanced technology in the field of hydrogen-electric power plants, so why don’t we launch a high-speed hydrogen car, ” – said Birman.

In 2015, Hyundai hinted at a similar car by launching a virtual supercar called the N 2025 Vision for the Gran Turismo racing simulator. The structure of the power plant includes four electric motors, which receive energy from two blocks of fuel cells. The total return of units amounted to 883 horsepower.

Oxygen is pumped through a fuel cell by a special turbine capable of unwinding up to 200,000 revolutions per minute. The supercar received an ultra-light monocoque of composite materials, due to which the mass of a single-seater was only 972 kilograms.
