Honda Hints at Future Hydrogen Car Design with New Concept

November 22nd, 2013 by

Japanese automaker Honda has brought quite the stylish concept car to this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show, and we’re having trouble deciding if they intended for it to look like a space ship.

Regardless, Honda’s FCEV Concept looks slick, and it comes with a modern technology to go with its snazzy looks: hydrogen fuel cells.

If you’re not up to speed on the fuel emissions ambitions at Honda, a little update is in order. The automaker is currently working on a viable hydrogen powertrain with GM that they hope will become mainstream by 2020. That doesn’t mean they aren’t offering hydrogen-powered vehicles in the interim, though. Their FCX Clarity is already available, and a variant on this concept will be released in 2015.

The unique styling on the concept may also see a production run in some form. The car is vaguely coupe-like, with a bulletesque stance and a futuristic aura. We’re not sure when, but we’d love to see it.

The Honda rumor mill tells us that the concept will have impressive all-hydrogen performance, including a 60-percent higher density, and 33-percent smaller size cell than the FCX Clarity, and a range of 300 miles.

While hydrogen-powered cars may be a ways off, we have some pretty impressive green vehicles for the time being. Drop by Brilliance Honda of Crystal Lake, right here in Crystal Lake, ILand check  out the new Honda models on our lot. There’s something here for everyone!
