Hyundai N Vision 74: Concept EV with Hydrogen Fuel Cell Tech

Hyundai N Vision 74: OVERVIEW


When it was first unveiled a few months ago, this hydrogen-fuel-cell/electric hybrid sports car concept lit up the automotive internet. Through the combination of a 670-hp powertrain and what those early photographs hinted was the ability to achieve outstanding drift angles, the N Vision 74 demonstrated Hyundai's sustained commitment to hydrogen power.


Now that we've had a chance to test drive an engineering prototype, we can vouch for the N Vision 74's physical presence as a superstar as well as its capacity to smoke its back tires. We can all support a future like this one.


Unfortunately, there are no plans to put the N Vision 74 into production; the drivable version was made primarily to aid Hyundai in learning more about what it refers to as a "virtual differential," which powers its rear wheels with two independent 335-hp motors that are not physically connected. It also turns out that the engineering car is not, in fact, a Hyundai.



What's Under The Hood Of N Vision 74?


Twin 4.2-kilogram hydrogen tanks located under the slatted rear deck power a fuel cell. They are under a scary 700 bar of pressure. Why don't the forces inside of them cause them to simply explode? Carbon fiber ballistics provide the solution. The tanks were created by Hyundai using a lightweight, bulletproof weave.

These tanks can go about 370 miles after five minutes of filling. But this vehicle is a hybrid, not just pure hydrogen. As you can see, the N Vision 74 has a 62.4kWh battery that can be quickly charged from the mains.

As a result, it begins off as an electric vehicle but may switch to a hydrogen fuel cell when the battery starts to run low to increase range. save for water, all without emissions. The drawback is how heavy all of this engineering is. two and a half tonnes in weight.


Hyundai N Vision 74: Performance


Contrarily, it moves along very quickly. There is an electric motor for each rear wheel. They combine for 670bhp, and as they are each independently operated, creative handling maneuvers are possible. Torque vectoring can assist in neatly turning the car towards the apex by slowing the inside wheel in a corner.

The 664lb-ft stream of torque may be instantaneously released in tandem if you're being naive and foolish, unsticking the rear tires and sending the N Vision 74 into enormous drifts.
