Clean air, 99.9% . It is not a way of saying or a simple advertising slogan, but one that actually produces a hydrogen-powered car projected into the future. We are talking about a new generation of environmentally-friendly fuel cell vehicles capable of emitting almost 100% of water and filtered oxygen.
An air so pure and free from toxic substances for health, that would almost want to breathe what comes out of the exhaust of one of these machines . And it is precisely this that has decided to show everyone the Hyundai , the South Korean car manufacturer that creates Nexo .
This hydrogen SUV, although it is not yet ready for everyday practical use, as there are very few distributors of this fuel, is one of the first cars to be purchased in series to be powered by the aforementioned technology . And, to publicize it, Hyundai has seen fit to focus precisely on cleaning the substances that come out of its exhaust pipe. Such as? In a truly unique way: let's see.

In there, the champion did not hesitate to run on a treadmill as if nothing had happened; indeed benefiting from the air produced by the car.
With the necessary precautions and recommending not to replicate at home what you see in the video, the automaker has taken care that the spot was shot in complete safety of the athlete. There is no denying: a gimmick of great originality, which leaves great hopes in a future in which the infrastructures to supply cars in this way are increasingly widespread, and allow everyone to move cleanly and efficiently .
