The Honda FCX was the world’s first production vehicle out in 2002. Honda’s FCX clarity came out in 2008 and turned even more heads. The next generation will arrive in 2015 and judging by the looks of the concept car, it will be incredible.
We think it’s a great thing for Honda to continue on developing new technologies because people want options and fuel cell technology is just one more option for people to consider as they evaluate the costs of filling up their vehicles with gasoline every day.
According to this article, “Inside, the Honda FCEV Concept provides ample seating for five thanks to new powertrain packaging efficiencies, which include the world’s first application of a fuel cell powertrain integrated completely within the engine compartment. The fuel-cell stack has an output of over 100 kilowatts with a power density of 3 kilowatts per liter, a 60 percent improvement from previous iterations.”
The Honda FCEV will give drivers a range of about 300 miles, comparable to that of the Tesla Model S. And better than standing there for an hour waiting for your car to charge (like the Model S or other EVs), the Honda FCEV can be refueled in about three minutes.
We are excited to see what the production model of the Honda FCEV looks like and proud that Honda continues to push the limits on modern technology!
