2015 NAIAS: Honda FCV Concept image

The Honda FCV Concept has been officially presented to the public in Detroit, during the automotive event.

Honda was present at the 2015 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) and one of the models which have been introduced is the FCV Concept. The vehicle has been basically designed in order to offer a preview of a production model which will be introduced on its homeland, in Japan, sometimes next year.

“The Honda FCV Concept makes its North American debut at the 2015 North American International Auto Show with U.S. availability of the production vehicle in 2016”, says the carmaker in its official press release.

The new Honda FCV Concept is getting a slightly sloping roofline, an aerodynamic exterior design, a lot of air intakes which have the purpose of reducing drag, aerodynamic wheels, LED headlights and several other tweaks. The interior design of the concept car is getting a five-seat layout, as you would have expected, along with premium leather upholstery, a futuristic instrument cluster, some metallic accents, wood trim and let’s also mention the “floating” infotainment system.

The Japanese based automaker Honda didn’t offer too many details on the vehicle’s specifications but it has announced that the production version will be getting a new fuel cell which is 33 percent smaller than the one from the FCX Clarity and it will be offering a range of more than 300 miles (482 km). Refueling it will take about 3 minutes. After its introduction in Japan, the FCV might be offered in the U.S. and in Europe too.
