Honda reveals FCEV concept and announces all-new VTEC turbo engine series

Honda has revealed its next-generation fuel-cell electric vehicle (FCEV) concept at the Los Angeles International Motor Show.
Anticipated to launch in the US and Japan in 2015, followed by Europe, Honda says the FCEV will feature the world’s first application of a fuel-cell powertrain packaged completely in the engine room of the vehicle.
According to Honda, significant technological advancements have been made to the fuel-cell stack, yielding more than a 60% increase in power density while reducing the size of the stack by 33% compared to the FCX Clarity. It is expected to deliver a driving range of more than 480km with a refueling time of about three minutes at a pressure of 70MPa.
“The Honda FCEV concept hints at Honda’s future direction for fuel-cell vehicles,” said Tetsuo Iwamura, president and CEO of American Honda. “While this care is a concept, it points towards a very real future.”
In other Honda-related news, the Japanese OEM recently announced the introduction of three all-new VTEC turbo engines as part of its growing Earth Dreams Technology range. These new engines come in three capacities; 1-liter, 1.5-liter and 2-liter, and will be direct-injection gasoline turbos, utilizing variable valve motion technology. Together with Honda’s 1.6-liter diesel engine and hybrid technology, these new turbo engines will be applied on a number of future global models.
The first VTEC turbo set to come to Europe will be the 2-liter, direct injection, 4-cyclinder turbo engine, which has an output in excess of 280ps and will appear in the forthcoming Civic Type R.
