On September 30, Honda announced its overview of exhibits for the upcoming 2015 Tokyo Motor Show, which includes the unveiling of their soon-to-be-released all-new fuel cell vehicle (FCV)
Though itâ€™s the same sedan as the FCX Clarity, this new model offers a spacious interior, as it becomes the first production model FCV to mount its fuel cell stack under the hood. It seats up to five passengers, which tops the four-passenger limit of the Clarity and Toyotaâ€™s Mirai.
The FC stack has been enhanced to provide over 700km of cruising range (JC08 mode) after refueling in about three minutes. This exceeds the Miraiâ€™s 650km. Though its cruising range is currently being examined, Hondaâ€™s PR department expects their new FCV to offer â€œan impressive number that surpasses 700kmâ€.
Hondaâ€™s President Takahiro Hachigo is scheduled to announce the name, release date, prices, and performance of this all-new FCV on October 28, the first press day of the Tokyo Motor Show.
