Interestingly, the Santa Fe FCEV was the first fuel cell electric vehicle to be showcased by Hyundai back in 2000 and this was followed up by the world’s first mass-produced FCEV, the ix35, in 2013. Second-generation fuel cell SUV Nexo was then showcased in 2018.

Hyundai also recently shipped 10 units of Xcient, the world's first mass-produced fuel cell heavy-duty truck. At a time when a few companies are trying to take long strides in providing heavy vehicles with alternate energy sources, this could help the Koreans create a firm foothold.
