Honda Hydrogen Fuel Cell FCX Concept 1999
Starting in the early 1980s, Honda have been involved in research and development for hydrogen fuel cell automobile aiming at a technology alternative to the gasoline and diesel engine propulsion.
A hydrogen fuel cell automobile is an electric driven car where electricity is generated by an electrochemical reaction involving hydrogen and oxygen (air) . The fuel cell is the electricity generator and the reaction only generates water as exhaust element. The real challenge is that hydrogen must be produced, transported and distributed.
Honda is working on the development of its own fuel cell technology. The FCX concept presented at the Tokyo Motor Show 1999 illustrates a sedan built on a platform that contains all the propulsion elements,the fuel cell stacks, the batteries, the hydrogen source and the electric motor. In this concept, hydrogen is generated on board by a reformer operating with methanol and added water.
