Hyundai will keep busy at CES in 2018 by unveiling its upcoming fuel-cell-powered crossover, next-gen autonomous vehicle tech, and the concept for the brand's future of automotive cabins. The company will also show off ways to use hydrogen power in the home. So far, Hyundai doesn't give the new FCEV model a name but promises to unveil the moniker during the show.

U.S.-spec Hyundai Kona Teased Ahead Of Los Angeles Debut

  U.S.-spec Hyundai Kona Teased Ahead Of Los Angeles Debut American customers will have a choice of a 1.6 turbo and a 2.0 naturally aspirated engines.The automaker is not revealing a lot of details about the U.S.-spec model, but we know from before it will be offered with two four-cylinder gasoline engines, mated to both front- and all-wheel drive configurations. The entry-level variant will be powered by a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated unit with 147 horsepower (110 kilowatts) and 132 pound feet (179 Newton-meters) of torque, paired to a six-speed automatic gearbox. In this version, the Kona will need 10 seconds to reach 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) from a standstill and will hit a top speed of 120 mph (193 kph).

Compared to the existing fuel-cell-powered Tucson, this new hydrogen-fueled crossover is a significantly better looking vehicle. The sharp nose features a wavy mesh grille and two-tiered lights. In profile, black trim outlines the greenhouse and semi-floating roof design. Spy shots of a mostly undisguised test mule (below) show that the vehicle as a funky rear with strakes on each side of the rear glass, triangular taillights, and metallic trim along the lower bumper.

Unlike the production model, this one's covered in LEDs, but we can still make out some solid details hidden under all that flashy stuff.

The new fuel cell reportedly operates at 60 percent efficiency, which is 9 percent better than the powertrain in the Tucson Fuel Cell. The improved tech allegedly pushes its range to 500 miles (804 kilometers). Hyundai will also equip the model with its latest autonomous driving tech, but these systems will likely trickle out to higher volume products later.

The lack of a hydrogen infrastructure is still a problem across the world. The South Korean government has pledged to install over 100 refueling points across the country by 2020.

Hyundai teased details about its next-gen cabin concept in December. The so-called Intelligent Personal Agent uses artificial intelligence to improve the quality of voice commands, including the ability to process multiple requests in a single sentence. The tech can also predict the driver's needs and tailor information accordingly. A simplified version of this system should debut on 2019 model year vehicles.

A new prominent and continuous body line spans the side from headlight to taillight. The dash-to-axle ratio appears to be longer, lending a sportier look, as does the more swept back roofline.
