At the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show Honda has revealed the FCEV Concept, a futuristic show car with a compact fuel cell powertrain that previews the technology of a future production vehicle for 2015.

The FCEV Concept features a sleek, futuristic design, which is very much in line with the car’s advanced technology.

Honda FC StackThe fuel cell powertrain has an output of more than 100kW, with a power density of 3kW/L, an increase of 60 percent, with the stack size reduced 33-percent compared to the FCX Clarity.

As Honda reports, “the concept expresses a potential styling direction for Honda’s next-generation fuel-cell vehicle anticipated to launch in the U.S. and Japan in 2015, followed by Europe.”

This production model will feature the world’s first application of a fuel-cell powertrain packaged completely in the engine compartment.

The car will deliver a driving range of more than 300 miles with a quick refueling time of about three minutes at a pressure of 70 MPa.
