2015 Tokyo Motor Show: Honda to present ‘smart community’ at the Smart Mobility City

Honda will exhibit a new energy management technology primarily from a new FCV at the 2015 Smart Mobility City, a theme project sponsored by the 44th Tokyo Motor Show, which will be held in Tokyo Big Sight from October 28, 2015.

The theme of Honda’s booth is “enabling people to live comfortably with peace of mind using technologies to ‘generate’ and ‘use’ energy and ‘get connected’ for energy.” Honda will present a unique “smart community” form and will exhibit the following: the Smart Hydrogen Station (SHS) that adopts a high-differential-pressure electrolyzer that ‘generates’ energy; a new FCV (tentative name) that ‘uses’ energy; and the Power Exporter 9000, an external power output that supplies energy from FCVs and EVs to homes and other facilities, allowing the community to ‘get connected.’

Furthermore, Honda will also exhibit power feeding through the Honda Power Manager, a V2H compatible DC normal charger that is chargeable with renewable energy. Aside from proposing a demountable mobile battery pack, which is also a form of renewable energy carrier, Honda will also showcase the concept model of a new ultra-small EV that uses a mobile battery pack as a power source.

On November 4, 2015, Honda will also conduct a symposium entitled, “Life in future will be changed by smart mobility.” Lastly, Honda will propose future directions for city planning based on the knowledge and issues acquired through separate experiments of the MC-Beta, a new micro-organized mobility product that Honda has been conducting through the cooperation of the municipalities in Kumamoto, Saitama, and Miyakojima cities since November 2013.
