Honda FCEV concept to be unveiled at Los Angeles Motor Show 2013
Honda will debut a new fuel cell concept at the upcoming 2013 Los Angeles Motor Show. It is the 'FCEV', and it stands for Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle. But for now, Honda has teased us with a sketch of the same.
The FCEV is clearly a styling exercise towards what will eventually be a production fuel cell vehicle. It is aimed to hit the US and Japanese market by 2015. But the entire idea of widespread accessibility and usability of fuel cell technology is still being worked on by Honda.

"The Honda FCEV Concept demonstrates the company's vision for the future of personal mobility and our commitment to developing advanced alternative fuel vehicles. As we work toward the introduction of our next-generation fuel-cell vehicle in 2015, our long-term experience with fuel-cell technologies will help us pave a way towards a zero-emissions future," said Mike Accavitti, senior vice president, Honda Motors America.
Honda's FCX Clarity, the first production model using the fuel cell technology
Honda is definitely a name to reckon with when it comes to the deployment of hydrogen fuel technology. Around two dozen customers are driving around in Honda's FCX Clarity, the first production model using the fuel cell technology. It was in the 2007 Los Angeles Show that Honda showcased the FCX Clarity. It then started leasing out its car to fleet customers. This not only allowed users to enjoy the benefits of an eco-friendly car but also helped Honda study the technology further and better its fuel cell development.
Considering these initiatives, 2015/16 could see Honda with a production ready model, running on its fuel cell electric technology.
