Hyundai Motor's most clear display of the layout of hydrogen vehicles is the hydrogen energy vision revealed in the Hydrogen Wave Forum in July 2021, which can achieve the goal to popularize hydrogen by 2040 for Everyone, Everything and Everywhere at Hydrogen Wave. There are several main focuses. On the technology side, the next generation fuel cell system is planned to be launched in 2023, including different combinations of 100kW and 200kW, cost reduction by more than half, total package volume reduction by 30%, and doubling of power output. And try to develop a full-plane fuel cell that is most suitable for use in PBVs, MPVs, buses and trams. The so-called PBV (Purpose Built Vehicle) is a low-cost environmentally friendly multi-purpose vehicle designed by using a modular device with a simple structure to meet the special needs and applications of various businesses such as customer mobility, logistics or living space. With software blocks such as control system, vehicle operation management, data and charging services, it can meet the requirements of each customer to improve business efficiency and reduce total cost of ownership.

When there is enough technical force to achieve these goals, there is a greater driving force for promotion. The hydrogen fuel cell system is conceptually an energy solution that can be used in all types of transportation and can be extended to various aspects including homes, buildings and power plants; in the future, it can be extended to include trailers, drones, high-performance sports cars and a product line concept of fuel cell-equipped vehicles for emergency rescue and rescue missions. In addition, the company's strongest endorsement of hydrogen vehicles is fully reflected in its announcement that it will be the first automaker to apply fuel cell systems to all commercial vehicle models by 2028, and by 2030 The goal of achieving a price point comparable to the price of hydrogen energy vehicles and lithium electric vehicles. This goal can be explained by the fact that Hyundai is more optimistic about hydrogen vehicles than lithium vehicles. Its more ambitious goal is not only to use hydrogen fuel cell and other related technologies for commercial use in vehicles such as NEXO SUV, Elec City Bus and XCIENT, but also to expand into various applications in 2040, including high-performance sports cars, urban Air traffic, robots, aircraft and large ships, etc., and then expand to all areas related to energy, including buildings, urban energy and power plants, storage of electricity and heating supplies, etc.
