Icona Nucleus embodies Icona’s vision for the future of mobility. First seen in 2015, the Icona Neo concept
demonstrated a very tangible tomorrow for the electric vehicle. With its fully autonomous driving level five,
the Nucleus jumps two generations ahead.

Icona Nucleus is a self-moving executive lounge: the body side is characterised
by long elegant sculpting which emphasizes the luxury nature of the
vehicle. With a length of 5.25 meters
and a width of 2.12 meters, the Nucleus stands at 1.75 meters high on 27 inches

arch aerodynamic blade extensions bring the CX to just under 0.22, a very good
number that definitely helps its rolling resistance and energy consumption. Its
Motor in wheel technology helps to optimize the space inside the Nucleus and
its hydrogen range extender can bring the autonomy to 1200 kilometers.
