Honda FCX

 

Honda has shows again its commitment to the environment with the Honda FCX.  The FCX not only makes great advances in car design but also in hydrogen technology.  They have made a vehicle that will attract Hollywood starts and world politicians and hope to rival the success of the Toyota Prius.

 

 

 

Hydrogen fuel-cell cars are still a long way off for two reasons.  The first being that there is not the necessary hydrogen refuelling infrastructure in the UK, or anywhere in the world for that matter.  The second reason being that it is still very expensive to attract hydrogen in an economically way which does not yet further use the worlds natural resources.

 

Producing approximately 134bhp it shows hydrogen technology is advancing.  Although the hydrogen powering it is from natural gas, emissions are still 50% that of a similar power petrol engine.  The Honda FXC is however a working prototype, set to go into production for a limited market in 2008, although there are not yet any plans to bring the car to the UK.
