No motor show is complete without at least one extremely futuristic looking concept car. This year at Detroit Motor Show it’s Honda bringing such concept to the party with the FCV. Despite its looks though, Honda FCV Concept is actually very much of its time.
Electric cars are hugely popular these days, but there is no getting away from the fact that this technology is flawed. And the biggest flaw of them all is limited range and of course long charging time which is the direct consequence of limited range. The FCV, on the other hand, is a fuel cell vehicle; a technology that can potentially solve all the issues of electric vehicles, providing proper infrastructure is created.
Honda FCV Concept is a five-passenger sedan with a range of 300 miles. Refueling it at a hydrogen station (which is what it burns to make electricity which eventually propels the car forward) takes about 3 minutes, which is the same as refueling with gasoline, and a helluva lot shorter than charing batteries from a plug.
The amazing looks of the Honda FCV Concept are designed not just to look futuristic, but also for optimum aerodynamic efficiency. And the best thing about it is that it’s not just a concept. Honda FCV is due to be launched in Japan in March 2016, followed by the U.S. and Europe.
