It is already known that Honda is a world leader in development of fuel cell vehicle, so it not a surprise that this company will introduce the first model that has fuel-cell powertrain packaged completely in the engine compartment. The new fuel stack has a power density of 3 kW per liter, which is a 60 percent increase. On the other side, complete storage is 33 percent smaller, compared to FCX Clarity concept.
