The final rating of the car was based on three indices with several metrics each - clean air, energy efficiency and greenhouse gases. Being a fuel cell electric car, the Nexo draws power from Hydrogen and produces distilled water as the only emission. Thanks to this, Nexo has scored full points on both the Clean Air and Greenhouse Gas index. On top of that, the car also managed to achieve an excellent rating for energy efficiency.

As per the official Green NCAP report: “(With Hyundai Nexo) there are no tailpipe emissions other than water. As a result, the Nexo scores full points for both the Clean Air and Greenhouse Gas indexes. Energy efficiency is also very high and the NEXO emerges with an average index just high enough to earn the car a maximum five-star rating."
