At the Detroit Motor Show
(NAIAS) of 2015, Honda has debuted their brand new fuel cell vehicle concept
car the Honda FCV concept for the first time in North America. Apparently, it’s
interior and exterior styling cues are the foundation of what we will see from
Honda’s next zero emissions fuel-cell vehicle which will be launched in Japan
next year followed by US and Europe.
Honda says that the new FCV will
do 300 miles (or if you live in the non hamburger eating world, 482kms.) in a
single tank of Hydrogen with an anticipated refuelling time of roughly three
minutes at 70Mpa. The fuel cell fits completely under the “Hood” or bonnet and
is 33pc smaller and more powerful by 66pc from the older FCX Clarity which will
be phased out.
Honda’s new styling for the FCV
Concept has a low and wide aerodynamic body with clean character lines. The
interior from the pictures looks like it has been inspired from Christian
Bale’s movie, Equilibrium and is even more spacious thanks to the new smaller
and more efficient powertrain.
The Honda FCV Concept made its
world debut in Japan on November 17, 2014. At the Los Angeles Auto Show, Honda
announced that they will provide FirstElement Fuel, in the U.S, with $13.8
million in financial assistance to build additional hydrogen refuelling
stations throughout the state of California in an effort to support the wider
introduction of fuel-cell vehicles or FCVs.
