Snapshot: Honda has revealed the production specs of the Honda FCV at the Tokyo Motor Show 2015. A car that can also act as generator and power a house if needed.

The Honda FCV is present at the Tokyo Motor Show and the company has revealed production specs. The FCV is a successor to FCX clarity. The entire fuel cell powertrain is present in the engine bay and it has become the first production car to do that. All this helps make the cabin roomier for the passengers.

The car appears aerodynamic and characteristic features include – a short overhang, low slung body, LED headlights and large 18 inch wheels.  FCV is powered by a 130 KW (176 PS) electric motor which is driven purely by hydrogen fuel cell stack which has an output of over 100 KW. The battery has been integrated on the floor to keep the centre of gravity low. While the hydrogen tanks are located below the rear seats and above the rear axles.

According to Honda, the car can be refuelled in just 3 minutes and has a range of about 700kms. Along the lines of other fuel cell cars, the Honda FCV can be used a source to power a house. Honda’s Man Maximum, Machine Minimum design principle works all around and make the interiors uncluttered and functional. A dual-tone dashboard an instrument console keeps the driver updated with powertrain and overall status of the car.

Honda would begin lease sales in Japan in March 2016. The non-polluting car creates only water as a by-product of the energy that it produces. To further popularise the FCVs Honda will be focused on sales mainly to local government bodies or business customers for the first year.
