Honda's Hydrogen Car Jumps the Gun

Honda has confirmed it plans a production model of the FCX Concept car unveiled at Tokyo Motor Show in three to four years.

Published: 05-Jun-2006

Hydrogen fuel cell cars could be on the road much earlier than the decade or more so far predicted. Honda has confirmed it plans a production model “in three to four years”.

The car will be based on the FCX Concept, unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show last year.
 
The car uses hydrogen to generate electricity that powers a motor. Britain’s first hydrogen filling station opened last year in Hornchurch, Essex, and there is already a fleet of hydrogen buses carrying passengers in London.

Honda engineers are working on a smaller, more efficient fuel cell to increase power and cabin space.
