With the All-New Hyundai NEXO, Hyundai Motor's second-generation of commercialised fuel cell electric vehicles, the company again takes the lead in this segment with the first dedicated hydrogen-powered SUV. This next generation fuel cell vehicle offers the most advanced technology on the market with autonomous driving capabilities, smart advanced driver assistance systems and strongest powertrains in the segment. NEXO is the technological flagship of Hyundai's growing eco-vehicle fleet and is built on a newly developed and dedicated vehicle platform. Hyundai Motor calls it a FUV - a future utility vehicle - combining the practicality of an SUV crossover with advanced electrified technology, comprehensive driver assistance functions and innovative and appealing design features. The new NEXO has the best range within the fuel cell and EV car segment of 666 km (under WLTP testing) / 756 km (NEDC) - comparable to an internal combustion engine and allowing drivers to travel long distances. Hyundai NEXO is available across Europe starting from mid-2018. Hyundai Motor is investing heavily in a future zero-emission mobility already covering the widest range of alternative powertrains in the industry. With the new fuel cell system, Hyundai has taken the comprehensive technology of the previous model further forward. The company is now introducing the most advanced eco-friendly powertrain making the fuel cell technology smaller, lighter and stronger. The next generation fuel cell vehicle improves the air supply system and reduces the already short refuelling times. The overall efficiency and fuel economy put the NEXO in a class all of its own.

Marked by exclusive “Electric Blue” exterior design cues, the new Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid skillfully combines the most advanced technology with the freest and most authentic Jeep spirit. Indeed, it fully appeals to off-road enthusiasts, courtesy of electrification that improves its legendary capability. At the same time, it is the ideal solution for those customers who are looking for an SUV to be used every day, and who are unwilling to compromise between freedom, fun and respect for the environment. This gave birth to a Wrangler, 100% unstoppable as per the Jeep tradition, and sporting unprecedented features: it is the most eco-friendly and off-road capable Wrangler ever, while maintaining the open air freedom that has always been hallmark of the Wrangler driving experience. Performance has also been enhanced: Wrangler 4xe accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.4 seconds and delivers 380 hp of maximum combined output and 637 Nm of torque. In addition, it drives 4x4 in “pure electric” mode, with never-seen-before low-end control, and can ensure more than 50 km of “pure electric” zero emissions range (in the urban WLTP cycle), which is perfect for everyday commutes in the city. Full battery recharge is available in less than 3 hours with options for scheduling, and – courtesy of the Max Regen feature – to increase the battery charge when coasting.
Casa 500 is a new exhibition space forming part of the museum complex at the Pinacoteca Agnelli, chaired by Ginevra Elkann. An immersive itinerary covering over 700 m2, it plays on memories, emotions and dreams to trace the culture and history of a country and a city, intertwined with the history of the 500. Much more than an automobile museum, Casa 500 tells the future of the FIAT brand, starting from its roots; ones that are indeed the inspiration for the future. The common thread is the ‘metamorphosis’ of the FIAT 500 across its three generations, a model that has made history in the automotive industry and has always inspired new ways of thinking and living. An icon of our times whose evolution conveys the culture of a country and the history of its city. Located on the 4th floor of the Pinacoteca Agnelli and directly overlooking the Lingotto track, Casa 500 is an open exhibition space, bathed in light and is connected to the track on all four sides by its large windows. Casa 500 is also a place where respect for the environment is the mantra that inspired the creation of all the spaces and materials, chosen for the installations that follow the principle summarized in the concept of “Reuse, Reduce, Recycle”: recycled wood for the tables, platforms and doors; panels that absorb the volatile components of the air; reused furniture or products with plastics recovered from the sea, like the rear seats in Seaqual® yarn; and eco-friendly, antibacterial paints. The Casa 500 exhibition is set out around a highly symbolic central tree, also made of recycled wood. A tree that represents the continuity of history, between the roots – the past – and the future. At the foot of the tree, the mask of the legendary 1957 Fiat 500 and a New (500)RED, the latest addition to the New 500 line-up.
