Honda, as well as Toyota and GM, intend to have hydrogen fuel cell powered electric vehicles on the road by 2015.
Japanese auto buyers will be the first to receive Honda’s new hydrogen vehicles, however the FCEV’s should be available to U.S. buyers in 2016.
In what quantity? That’s yet to be discovered. Perhaps instructive, the current Honda fuel cell electric vehicle, the FCX Clarity has had a production run somewhere north of 200, but only 40 or so have been sold in the U.S.
The Clarity has a 250 mile range. Jessica Fini of Honda North America tells one of our correspondents, Michael Boehm, that the FCEV vehicle Honda will have in 2015 will exceed that range, but would not yet provide an exact estimate.
