Los Angeles 2013: Honda FCEV Concept
November 21st, 2013 12:13 AM Share
Honda’s successor to the FCX Clarity isn’t set to arrive on our shores until 2015, but those in LA bore witness to what its successor would look like through the eyes of the FCEV Concept.
The FCEV can ferry up to five passengers due to the totatlity of the drivetrain stored within what Honda calls “the engine room.”
As for power, hydrogen is used to create the electricity needed to drive the wheels forward. The automaker has improved this process since the FCX, managing 3 kW per liter of hydrogen consumed.
Honda expects the FCX’s successor to have a range of 300 miles, with only three minutes spent at the pump.

- Kwik_Shift Ever see the movie "Rubber"?
- Bunkie Perhaps, I am wrong, but I believe that the issue is that high-power electronics in an EV cause interference with the AM radio signal. As for listening to radio in the car, I don't. I had SiriusXM for a few years but hated the awful sound quality and the signal dropout caused by obstructions like terrain (which made listening to any talk-based content painful), not to mention the annual game of having to threaten to cancel in order to get a decent rate. These days, I use either music stored on my phone or one of the streaming music services to which I subscribe. Sometimes I even listen to CDs, I will miss the CD player.
- 28-Cars-Later Can we send them all into space? Pleaseeeee?
- Mike Beranek People tend to get pissed at me because I don't speed on 25 mph residential streets. I don't speed on those streets because there's nothing to be gained, like there would be by speeding on a highway.Also, a question for drivers: If you're in the passing lane, why are they passing you?
- Wolfwagen I worked for a few companies that have used Transit Connects for service or delivery and of course as Cabs in NYC (NV200 are the best cabs in NYC- plenty of legroom). I had never seen one as a passenger vehicle until a few months ago when I saw one at the local HD parking lot. It looked great for a small family or even an active couple that needs secure storage. However, I have never seen any advertisement from Ford for this model/trim
My wife indulges me with my TTAC habit. She leaned over my shoulder and said that this concept reminds her of a folded and rolled dinner napkin.
1. No, this isn't what it will look like 2. Why not just scan the brochure and post that? 3. Where's the engine room? 4. Electricity may eventually twist the wheels, but it's the road that drives them forward. 7. I must be in a bad mood.
