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.
