2001 FCX-V4

2001 FCX-V4

Honda introduced the FCX-V4 fuel cell - powered vehicle in September 2001.

Each component of the fuel cell unit in FCX-V4 is newly designed, achieving a more compact package.

Improvements have been achieved in driving performance, including maximum speed and acceleration, and cruising distance has been extended. New collision-safety measures are also incorporated into FCX-V4.

Adopting newly designed high-pressure hydrogen fuel tanks compatible with 350 atmospheres contributes to a considerable increase in the vehicle's cruising distance  to 300 km from 180 km in the previous model.
