Honda to introduce three new hybrid systems and fuel cell model

Article by Anita Panait, on September 21, 2012

Honda plans to introduce three new hybrid systems for different types of vehicles as the carmaker aims to build units that emit lesser levels of carbon dioxide. Banking on its hybrid expertise, Honda plans to match the hybrid systems’ unique characteristics and deployment to customer needs. First, Honda plans to advance the development of its lightweight and compact one-motor hybrid system, with the goal of achieving the best fuel economy among all hybrid vehicles.

Honda plans to push improvements in motor output and battery performance and combine them with a newly developed transmission to the driving range of the vehicles with the system. Second, Honda is currently developing a more powerful two-motor hybrid system for mid-size vehicles.

Third, the Japanese carmaker has set its eyes on a highly efficient and high power 3-motor hybrid system, the Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All Wheel Drive), which promises to deliver driving performance. The Sport Hybrid SH-AWD will be applied to the new Honda NSX. Honda expects these new hybrid technologies to deliver unequalled driving performance and fuel economy.

On the other hand, Honda is also keen on developing fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs), which it considers as the ultimate environmentally-responsible technology.

The carmaker has already attempted to lead the industry in R&D and sales activity with regards to FCEVs. In fact, Honda unveiled the FCX Clarity fuel cell electric vehicle in 2008. Honda will launch in 2015 an all-new fuel cell electric model that will feature considerable technological advancements and cost reductions that Honda has achieved since the launch of the FCX Clarity. Honda plans to roll out the new model in Japan, USA and Europe.
