DETROIT -- The Honda FCV Concept made its North American debut at the Cobo Center in Detroit. "Honda has been leaders in fuel cell vehicles for a long time," says Chris Martin, Western Regional Manager of Public Relations at American Honda Motor Co.

The Honda FCV Concept is a zero-emission vehicle. The only emissions are electricity, heat and water, which creates H20 that comes out of the tail pipe. The hydrogen tank can be refueled in just three minutes. It holds the energy and the range is greater than 300 miles. Honda strives to achieve further improvement in performance and a reduction in cost.

The goal is to try to keep passengers comfortable in any extreme weather situation. However, in the wintertime, heat or air conditioning in the summer does affect the performance of the vehicle by lowering the range and will require you to refuel more often.

How has the Honda fuel cell stack compared to last years model? "Well, it was larger last year and located under the hood and this year it is smaller and located under the arm rest. So now it is a five-passenger vehicle," says Martin.

"The Honda FCV concept is going into production next year and will be on sale in Japan. It will come to the U.S. in select markets after launching in Japan. The concept will be built in Japan, never in the U.S. However, it is possible in the long run, that it may be produced in the U.S.," added Martin.

The FCV Concept made its world debut in Japan on Nov. 17, 2014, followed by an announcement at the Los Angeles Auto Show that Honda will provide FirstElement Fuel with $13.8 million in financial assistance to build additional hydrogen refueling stations throughout the state of California in an effort to support the wider introduction of fuel-cell vehicles.

Look for a Honda fuel cell vehicle to launch in the U.S. following a projected March 2016 introduction in Japan. By 2018, Honda will introduce an all-new plug-in hybrid model and an all-new battery-electric vehicle.
