Honda has been researching and developing fuel cells to resolve issues we face such as air pollution and energy conservation. In September 1999, Honda installed its internally developed fuel cell stacks on its fuel cell test vehicle for the first time. Since then, we have made efforts to increase the commercial value of our fuel cell vehicles by setting the aim of our fuel cell development to attain a more compact design with higher output, and to be more adaptable to wider areas. In October 2003, Honda announced the new-generation fuel cell stack, and delivered the Honda FCX to New York State in November 2004. We test-ran the FCX in wider areas and a great deal of information was obtained regarding the FCX’s environmental adaptability and durability.
This paper describes the current and future work on the Honda FCX fuel cell vehicle and fuel cell stack.
