Honda’s new fuel cell vehicle to be in U.S. next year

Honda Motor Co. unveiled its next-generation hydrogen fuel cell vehicle Thursday, saying it would begin producing a small number of vehicles next year for use in Japan and the United States.

The new Honda FCX is sportier and sleeker than the current version, with a top speed of 100 mph. It has a longer range — 270 miles, up from 210 — and a fuel cell power system that’s 400 pounds lighter.

“We’re calling this the ‘FCX Concept’ but I can assure you it is not just some far out, pie-in-the-sky exercise in what may or may not come to fruition some day in the distant future,” said Steve Ellis, Honda’s manager of fuel cell vehicle marketing.

Ellis said the vehicle is an important tool in reaching out to green-conscious customers. “It will be positioned as the ultimate environmental badge of honor for our customers.”
