Development of the Honda FCX Fuel Cell Vehicle

Article of Honda R&D Technical Review Vol.15 No.1

Summary

Honda has developed the ultimate clean power fuel cell vehicle, the FCX, to respond to environmental and energy issues. Honda simultaneously marketed the FCX in the U.S. and Japan in December 2002. This vehicle is provided with a compressed pure hydrogen type fuel cell and an Ultra capacitor as a combined power source, and is driven by a high-performance drive motor. Honda’s original packaging technologies enable these units to be fitted in a compact body. The FCX has a practical driving range, high maximum speed, and excellent power performance. The vehicle also ensures crash safety from all directions and comfortably seat four adults.
