Hyundai’s Hydrogen-Powered Nexo SUV Priced From Nearly $60K
https://insideevs.com/hyundais-hydrogen-nexo-suv-priced/

. . . Only available with two trim levels, consumers have the choice of going with the entry-level Nexo Blue with an MSRP of $59,345, which includes a destination fee of $1,045. The higher Limited trim level will start at $62,845. Both the Blue and Limited prices are before applicable incentives like the California Clean Vehicle Rebate, which offers $5,000 for eligible buyers.

Even though it’s the base model, the Nexo Blue will come with a ton of great features like 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, a synthetic leather interior, and heated power seats. It will also come equipped with driver assistance and safety tech like adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, and emergency braking.

Stepping up to the Limited trim will give you larger 19-inch alloy wheels, power sunroof, hands-free power liftgate, and an eight-speaker Krell audio system. Some other cool features include remote parking assist, surround-view monitor, heated steering wheel, and ventilated seats up front. . . .

I'd hoped that they would be able to get the price down to maybe $50k so that's a bit disappointing, but as the article notes the Limited's only $60 more than a Mirai, while the Nexo has considerably more range (380 vs. 312). No info on leasing or fuel subsidy yet.

Hyundai delivers first 2019 NEXO fuel cell SUV to US customer
https://www.greencarcongress.com/2018/12/20181230-nexo.html

Hyundai delivered its first NEXO fuel cell SUV (earlier post) to Todd Hochrad of Ventura, California—the first US customer to drive off in the new NEXO, the only mass-produced fuel cell SUV for the US market, featuring a range up to 380 miles.

Hochrad purchased his first hybrid car more than 15 years ago, and over the years has driven dedicated electric vehicles as well. His new NEXO will deliver about five times the driving range of his first all-electric car.

NEXO can be leased for $399 (Blue model) or $449 (Limited model) for 36 months and can be purchased for $58,300. The first year of maintenance is free of charge and customers are eligible for a tax credit (subject to individual tax circumstances) from the state of California for up to $5,000.

Purchasers of new Hyundai NEXO SUVs will receive hydrogen fueling cards with a combined maximum value of $13,000 to be used during the first three years of vehicle ownership. . . .

$13k makes a lot more sense than the $5k noted in an earlier report uptopic, given the still too high price for H2 due to lack of competition; that's down from the $!5k that Toyota and Honda were providing, but with the much larger number of H2 stations due to open in the next few years, hopefully we should see larger fuel price drops. The lease price seems a bit high, but no info yet on how much is needed upfront or annual miles.

Per "Automobile" mag the Limited is rated 59/54/57 combined EPA and 354 miles total range, while the Blue is higher at 65/58/61 and 380 miles. Using 57 mpkg and my current local H2 cost of $16.78/kg., the car could go 44,160 miles on Hyundai's money. Air Products stations in SoCal charge $9.99/kg. so that should take them over 74k miles, well beyond any likely lease mileage limit.

Per IEVS, Hyundai delivered 8 Nexos in the U.S. in December, it's first month of availability here. I expect it will rapidly overtake the Mirai and Clarity FCEV in sales.

That OB/GYN is on his second H2 FCV. He certainly knows how to take advantage of OPM.

Price: $58,300. Lease: $399/mo. Those numbers really don't go together. (And, no, high residual makes no sense for this kind of car.)
