Honda introduced its all-new fuel-cell vehicle, the FCV Concept, a vehicle that previews company’s next-generation FCV. According to the manufacturer, this new vehicle is a successor to the FCX Clarity and comparing with the previous model the concept arrives with a new fuel-cell stack that is 33% smaller than the previous fuel-cell stack.
Moreover, the output delivered is more than 100 kW, while output density is as high as 3.1 kW/L, which represents a 60% percent increase when compared with the previous fuel-cell stack.
FCV Concept is also equipped with a 70 MPa high-pressure hydrogen storage tank which offers a range of more than 700 km (435 miles). Honda says that the tank can be refilled in just three minutes, which is almost as quick as today’s gasoline vehicles.
What’s more interesting is that the FCV Concept comes with an external power feeding function, which means that the concept can act as a small-sized mobile power plant that can generate and provide electricity. The design of the vehicle is also new but seems to be inspired by the FCX Clarity. Thanks to the powertrain layout, up to 5 adults can travel comfortably.
