The i-Blue crossover is the first Hyundai designed from the ground up as a fuel-cell vehicle. Powered by the company's third-generation fuel-cell technology, Hyundai claims the i-Blue has a range of 370 miles and a top speed of more than 100 mph. The crystal glass grille and headlamps are intended to evoke water, the only tailpipe emission from a fuel-cell vehicle. Forward-tech features include a 3-D head-up display and a "full-surround" camera system intended to ease parking and lane changes. Hyundai says it hopes to mass produce hydrogen-powered vehicles in the next decade, and we wouldn't bet against it.
