The Honda FCEV concept will make its world debut at next week's Los Angeles auto show, previewing a future next-generation fuel cell electric vehicle due to launch in 2015.
Pictured in a single sketch, the Honda FCEV concept is the Japanese car maker's vision of a zero-emissions production car planned for the US and Japan in 2015, with Europe to follow.
American Honda senior vice president Mike Accavitti said the concept “demonstrates the company’s vision for the future of personal mobility and our commitment to developing advanced alternative fuel vehicles”.
In July, Honda announced an agreement with General Motors to co-develop fuel cell and hydrogen storage technologies with the target being commercially viable systems by 2020.
More details of the Honda FCEV concept will be revealed on November 20 when the LA auto show begins.
Making its world premiere at the same time – albeit at the Tokyo motor show – will be Toyota's own hydrogen fuel cell-powered concept. Like the Honda, the Toyota FCV also previews an upcoming production car launching in 2015.
