Honda and GM partner to expand nationwide fuel-cell adoption

As leaders in the auto industry, Honda and General Motors are joining forces to co-develop next-generation fuel cell technology  systems and hydrogen storage technologies by 2020. Both, GM and Honda will work together with government agencies and stakeholders to develop a new hydrogen refueling infrastructure which will be essential to long-term viability and acceptance of fuel cell vehicles.

Fuel cell technology addresses the challenge of petroleum dependency, auto emissions, and refueling times in today’s vehicles. Fuel cell vehicles present great benefits to the environment because they operate on renewable hydrogen made from sources like wind. How does it work?

Well, a fuel cell vehicle creates electricity from a chemical reaction between hydrogen and oxygen in a car’s fuel-cell stack. Thus, the only emission from fuel cell vehicles is water vapor. Fuel cell automobiles can have up to 400 miles of driving range and can be refueled in as little as three minutes.

According to the Clean Energy Patent Growth Index, GM and Honda rank No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, in total fuel cell patents filed between 2002 and 2012, with more than 1200 patents between them.

Now that’s impressive!

“This collaboration builds upon Honda and GM’s strengths as leaders in hydrogen fuel cell technology,” said Dan Akerson GM chairman and CEO. “We are convinced this is the best way to develop this important technology, which has the potential to help reduce the dependence on petroleum and establish sustainable mobility.”

Takanobu Ito, president CEO of Honda Motor Co. Ltd. mentioned: “Among all zero CO2 emission technologies, fuel cell electric vehicles have a definitive advantage with range and refueling time that is as good as conventional gasoline cars. Honda and GM are eager to accelerate the market penetration of this ultimate clean mobility technology and I am excited to form this collaboration to fuse our leading fuel cell technologies and create an advanced system that will be both more capable and more affordable.”

Honda began leasing the Honda FCX in 2002 and has deployed 85 units in the US and Japan. Its successor, the FCX Clarity was named 2009 World Green Car. Thanks to this vehicle, Honda has collected valuable data concerning real-world use of fuel cell electric vehicles.

As announced, Honda plans to launch the successor of FCX Clarity in 2015 in Japan and the US.
