Honda FCX (fuel cell vehicle) review

Posted by ben @ 9:52 AM | Permanent Link





The NY Times has a review of the Honda FCX (for Fuel Cell Experimental) car which is the first zero-emission (this is debatable), hydrogen-driven vehicle to be certified by both the Environmental Protection Agency and the State of California for everyday commercial use. The journalist was given a week of unsupervised fun with the car. Honda says that the car cost about $1-2 million to develop, there are only 20 of them in existence. The engine is an 86 kilowatt (107 horsepower) fuel cell coupled with an ultracapacitor which is charged from regenerative brakes, two 5000psi hydrogen tanks are used in the car which gives a travel range of about 190 miles (305km). The vehicle has a top speed of 93 miles an hour and takes about 11 seconds to accelerate to 60 miles an hour. The car can start up at -20C (-4F), but the startup time under these conditions was not given. Fuel efficiency of 57 miles per kilogram of hydrogen (this would be roughly equivalent to 57 miles per gallon of gasoline since 1 gallon of gasoline has about the same energy content as a kilogram of hydrogen). Also, hydrogen is expected to cost $3/kg by 2008 which would mean that in 2008, the operating cost of this car would be about $0.05/mile.

but what about the price fuel cells sell for $4000 per kw as of now. Which they have to reduce to $40 per kw to be competitive.

Fuel is the adrenaline of any car, truck or engine. Thus, it is every vehicle owner's wish to enhance the fuel of their car and save more of it as well. With this in mind, the most innovative fuel-saving tool in the automotive industry was conceptualized and created: the Tornado Fuel saver. An automotive air channeling tool that creates a swirling air motion, the Tornado Fuel Saver allows the air to move in a faster and more efficient way by whirling air around corners and bends. Hence, more fuel is saved.
