Why the Honda FCEV Concept Matters:
What you see here is the likely replacement for the FCX Clarity, in conceptual form. The Honda FCEV, introduced at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show, is a rakishly futuristic 5-passenger automobile equipped with a fuel-cell powertrain. What matters the most about the FCEV Concept isn’t improvements in terms of packaging, power density, or range. Rather, what matters the most is that Honda came right out and said that this would be the first mass-produced fuel-cell vehicle.
Then, not four hours later, Hyundai introduced the 2015 Tucson Fuel Cell, complete with a 36-month lease of $499 per month including free hydrogen fuel and maintenance. Doh!
