Honda Fuel Cell Vehicle Unveiled at Tokyo Motor Show: The FCV Clarity

What’s more important than protecting the water we drink, the air we breathe, and the food we eat? Nothing. That’s why Honda is taking the future of sustainable transportation to the next level with its FCV Clarity hydrogen fuel cell vehicle.

The cars don’t actually run on hydrogen, though. Using a method that Honda doesn’t disclose (for obvious reasons), the FCV combines oxygen and hydrogen to create electricity. The only by-product of this entire process is water, making this a true zero emissions vehicle. As crazy as it sounds, it’s the truth. The FCV’s only emission is water, and we’re amazed at the technology this vehicle is packing.

Hydrogen is the most common element on the planet, making it a sensible and reliable resource to power our transportation. While some of it is harvested by “reforming” natural gas to split the hydrogen atoms, we also capture it from water. It’s not a perfect solution, but it is certainly a step in the right direction

The FCV made its first real appearance last week at the Tokyo Auto show, which sparked a lot of excitement in the world of alternative fuel sources. Lucky for anyone interested, this concept is production ready, and should be heading to our shores in 2016. It offers a competitive cruising range of around 300 miles, a refueling time of 3 to 5 minutes, and cabin space for five occupants.
