Hyundai has taken its high-tech fuel-cell vehicle called the NEXO and turned it into the world’s first self-driven fuel-cell electric vehicle. The NEXO is a Level 4 autonomous vehicle and a trio of the SUVs have completed a drive that spanned 190 km from Seoul to Pyeongchang completely self-driven.

This is the first time in the world that level 4 autonomous driving has been achieved with fuel cell electric vehicles.
