TOKYO Motor Show will feature car which also produces electricity

CAR giants Honda have announced that they will unveil the tentativelynamed FCV, the world’s first production model of a fuel-cell powered saloon to house the entire fuel-cell powertrain in the space normally occupied by the engine and transmission, at the Tokyo Motor Show, which opens on October 29.

This powertrain layout has enabled a full cabin package that seats five adults. Also, the all-new FCV has a cruising range of more than 700 kilometres, while exhilarating driving is made possible by the high-output motors.

The FCV can also act as a mobile power plant, due to its external power feeding inverter, meaning that it will generate and provide electricity to communities in case of an emergency.

A fuel cell vehicle (FCV) is a vehicle which uses a fuel cell to power its electric motor using Oxygen and Hydrogen. In theory, such a ‘motor’ emits only water and heat, so it is considered a zero-emissions vehicle.
