multiple-pronged approach to electrification is helping the automaker to cover its bases as we move away from carbon-emitting internal combustion vehicles. It is entering the long-range battery-electric vehicle game with the


EV, and it is following up on its


strategy with the 2019


, which replaces the


Fuel Cell. We’ve had a couple opportunities to sample the Nexo fuel-cell


, and now it’s making its way into the garages of the general public;

Hyundai has delivered the first Nexo

to a customer in California.

The first Hyundai Nexo customer is Ventura resident Todd Hochrad, who took delivery from Keyes Hyundai in Van Nuys. The former scientist is no stranger to electrification, having owned


and battery

electric vehicles

in the past. Now he’ll be able to enjoy emissions-free driving (well, apart from the clean water byproduct) as well as the convenience of quick fill-ups at the

hydrogen fueling station


Customers in California can buy Hyundai Nexo for a starting MSRP of $58,300. Hyundai also offers a 36-month


; The Nexo Blue goes for $399 a month, while the limited leases for $449. The Nexo is eligible for a $5,000 tax credit from the state of California, and customers also receive a year of

free maintenance

and fueling cards good for the first three years of ownership.

We’ve had the

opportunity to drive the Hyundai Nexo

fuel-cell SUV, and found it to be a a pleasant drive — calm, quiet and comfortable, with a quality interior and robust driver assist technologies. It’s a shame that our limited hydrogen-fueling infrastructure will keep this car limited to certain regions in the U.S., primarily San Francisco and southern California for now.
