While Toyota stated its intentions in the market of hydrogen vehicle with the FCV concept - Honda that has been selling an hydrogen fuel cell car for several years is announcing an new model to succeed to the FCX Clarity.
Indeed, Honda has been testing for more than ten years a hydrogen car, the FCX Clarity launched in fleets in 2002, then sold to individuals since 2005. Although only merely twenty cars are on the road, they have enabled Honda to get feedback and know-how on hydrogen.
The Honda FCEV previews a all new fuel cell vehicle, starting with its design introduced with a first sketch - awaiting its reveal at the Los Angeles Autoshow - futuristic and aerodynamic in line with the NSX Concept, sleek and sporty with rear wheels that seem integrated in the body for aerodynamics – regarding its technical specs, its efficiency should go forward.
Vision for the future of mobility - the Honda FCEV concept to be revealed on 20 November announces the next generation of hydrogen vehicle with a launch planned in 2015 in the United States and Asia first, then Europe.
Mike Accavitti, senior vice president of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "As we work toward the introduction of our next-generation fuel-cell vehicle in 2015, our long-term experience with fuel-cell technologies will help us pave a way towards a zero-emissions future."
