Aug. 12, 2019—The 2019 Hyundai Nexo, a new hydrogen fuel cell vehicle, recently earned the TOP SAFETY PICK+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (NHTSA) for vehicles built after June 2019.
The Nexo, which is only available in California, is the first hydrogen fuel cell vehicle that IIHS has tested.
The midsize luxury SUV has good ratings in all six crashworthiness tests. Its standard front crash prevention system earns a superior rating. The vehicle avoided collisions in 12 mph and 25 mph track tests and has a forward collision warning system that meets NHTSA criteria.
