  • Honda will be introducing its next generation advanced power-train vehicles by 2018.
  • Honda FCV is its next-generation zero-emissions concept unveiled at NAIAS 2015 in Detroit.

The Honda FCV Concept made its debut in North America at NAIAS 2015 and the FCV concept demonstrates the styling evolution of the next generation Honda fuel-cell vehicle.

The Honda FCV Concept has finally made its North American debut at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) 2015. The vehicle will be present in the United States by 2016.

Honda also has plans for two and three motor hybrid systems in the years to come. Now these vehicles will offer significant volume that will enable Honda to bring ultra-low carbon transportation to consumers in the US.

The company has also announced that it plans to introduce new VTEC Turbo engines that are going to be built in Ohio and will be unveiled later in 2015.  

Now the Honda FCV Concept demonstrates the styling evolution of Honda’s next fuel cell vehicle that is thought will debut in the United States following its March 2016 introduction in Japan.

This new Honda fuel cell car is going to feature a spacious cabin that will provide seating capacity for five people and a driving range that will most probably exceed the 300 miles mark.

Moreover customers will be happy to learn that the fuel cell stack of the FCV Concept is 33 percent smaller with a 60 percent increase in power density compared to the outgoing Honda FCX Clarity. 

The FCV Concept by Honda will also feature a low, wide aerodynamic body with clean character lines. The FCV Concept made its world debut in Japan on November 17th 2014.

Plus Honda also announced at the Los Angeles Auto Show that the company will provide the FristElement Fuel with $13.8 million in financial assistance to build additional hydrogen refueling stations throughout the state of California. This Honda explained was in an effort to support the wider introduction of fuel-cell vehicles.   

Moreover in addition to these new fuel cell vehicles, Honda will also be introducing its next generation advanced powertrain vehicles that will leverage new Honda Earth Dreams Technology powertrains.

These new next generation vehicles by Honda will include an all new Honda plug-in hybrid model (PHEV), an all-new Honda battery electric vehicle (BEV) and a further application of its two and three motor hybrid systems that will contribute to significant sales volume growth. 

It however seems that Honda will not put a break to its new innovations just here .The Company is by the end of the year looking forward to introduce its new 4 cylinder VTEC Turbo engines which is basically an extension of its Earth Dreams Technology powertrain lineup.

Honda has revealed that the production of its new VTEC Turbo engine will begin later this year at the company’s Anna, Ohio, engine plant. This plant is the largest automobile plant in Honda’s global production network. 

With such new innovations and concept cars it seems that Honda is definitely well prepared for the future of the car market and industry. Moreover the FCV Concept is no doubt one of the best that we have seen at the NAIAS 2015 which is being held in Detroit.
