The development is the first vehicle featuring a fuel-cell powertrain that is confined to the engine compartment instead of being spread throughout the vehicle. Honda explains that this will allow the interior to offer more room.
As for the fuel cell tech itself, Honda didn’t offer too many details. However, the company explained that the new development offer a 60 percent higher power density compared to what the FCX Clarity has to offer and yet this is 33 percent more compact.
Honda also promises that its fuel cell setup will offer a range of over 300 miles (482 km), explaining that a refill will take about three minutes.
