Honda is working to achieve carbon neutrality in part through the advancement of new hydrogen fuel cell systems and FCEV powertrains. Critically, Honda’s next-generation FCEV powertrain technology is being co-developed with GM. Honda's upcoming FCEV will feature hydrogen tech co-developed with GM. The tech will also find applications in heavy trucks, machinery, and elsewhere.The new Honda FCEV will be equipped with next-generation fuel cell technology co-developed with GM. GM and Honda have been engaged in a joint effort to develop hydrogen fuel cell technology since 2013.According to Honda, the new FCEV model will leverage the knowledge, know-how and economies of scale of both [GM and Honda] to reduce costs by one-third compared to costs for the fuel cell system offered by the 2019 Honda Clarity FCEV. This cost reduction was achieved by various measures, including the use of innovative new electrode materials, the advancement of a cell sealing structure, simplification of the supporting equipment, and productivity improvements.The new system also features enhanced durability thanks to new corrosion-resistant materials, controlled suppression of deterioration, and an increase to low-temperature resistance.Honda expects fuel cell technology to reach widespread popularization around the 2030 calendar year, with system advancements eventually enabling fuel cell system costs that are on par with conventional diesel powerplants. To achieve this, Honda will continue to develop fuel cell technology to double durability and halve costs as compared to the increased durability and reduced costs realized by the system co-developed with GM.
