Edmunds Evaluation: 2005 Honda FCX

Posted Image

Not exactly a new car but only recently reviewed. Go figure.

Honda admitted that the future of fuel-cell cars is uncertain and there is no guarantee that this type of car will ever make a practical contribution to meeting our transportation needs. The platinum fuel-cell stack is expensive and very labor-intensive to assemble. Notwithstanding, Honda has set an admirable example by putting 15 FCXs on the road, mainly with public agencies in California, and has another five cars that are used for Honda's internal fleet.

Honda is also pressing forward with plans to introduce a production fuel-cell vehicle slated to go on sale in two years. The cost of this production vehicle, currently named the FCX Concept, has not yet been set or even estimated. And clearly, to make it practical would require the completion of California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's Hydrogen Highway. This, and many other things about hydrogen fuel-cell cars, are still very much in the planning — and dreaming — phase.

That's an embarrassing-looking car, pure and simple.

It looks like it was styled in the early 90's, and kind of resembles the Civic's of that time, except taller like a minivan. Not the best exterior styling, but I'm sure they had more important things to worry about.
