Later this month, Honda will give the world a preview of its next-generation fuel cell electric vehicle, the Honda FCEV concept, at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show. According to Honda, the FCEV concept will demonstrate the potential styling direction for its next fuel-cell electric vehicle launching in the US and Japan in 2015.
“The Honda FCEV Concept demonstrates the company’s vision for the future of personal mobility and our commitment to developing advanced alternative fuel vehicles,” said Mike Accavitti, senior vice president of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “As we work toward the introduction of our next-generation fuel-cell vehicle in 2015, our long-term experience with fuel-cell technologies will help us pave a way towards a zero-emissions future.”
Honda was the first automaker to put a fuel-cell electric vehicle in the hands of retail consumers in 2005, and since then about two dozen customers are driving the FCX Clarity. The replacement for the current Honda FCX Clarity will arrive in 2015 in the US and Japan in 2015, and later in Europe.
