2019 Honda FCX – Best among its segment
New fuel cell cars are dedicated to the assembly line established within the Honda Center for New Car Models, in which different processes are unique for fuel-cell vehicles such as the installation of fuel cell batteries and a clean hydrogen tank. In the process of fuel cell production, exclusively designed automated equipment has been introduced to ensure the highest level of quality.
It will have the maximum accuracy that allows the mass production of the cells themselves, since it is necessary to have several hundreds of individual cells for the installation of one battery of fuel cells. An additional source of energy is a set of Li-Ion batteries, which store the kinetic energy generated by regenerative braking, as well as excess energy generated by a catalytic reaction where hydrogen dissolves on protons and electrons and chemically reacts with oxygen.
Of course, in addition to the energy obtained, the only product is pure water. The new 2019 Honda FCX represents a mid-class sedan for four people in the atmosphere, releasing only water vapor. According to Honda, the car delivers twice the energy efficiency of gas or electricity hybrids. Also, it is three times higher than petrol-powered cars. The main advantage of the new technology is that there is no CO2 emission.
