Yeah, except Honda is still pissing away its engineering skill and time on hydrogen instead of working on an ev that could be practical now.

Sigh. The Fit EV showed they can do it, but chasing hydrogen is just kicking the can down the road with no end in sight.

Solar powered Hydrogen production would be a good selling point. Unless of course we run out of water!

Scale of economy will bring these technologies on line. The promise of Hydrogen is connected to clean energy. If Hydrogen can be produced with solar power in sufficient quantities, it would be the answer for more than just transportation fuel. Hydrogen could also power homes, and in the colder climates, produce fuel for heating.

Every year honda releases a new hydrogen vehicle. Its limited to CA residents and production units. I doubt "that" will be available at the dealer. Its likely going to be a water down looking combination of the HCH Acura.

This also looked familiar to me. A German electric two-seater.

That thing looks sick! Slap a 5.8L V8 in there along with a 25HP electric motor and then you can have your cake and eat it to! Hahaha

Hmm, the Visio.M looks like a real world posibility. Light weight, small battery and good aero yields about 100 miles with two people and luggage. Sounds like a good commuter... that will never be produced. CRXish somewhat...

Looks like an interesting and fun engineering exercise, at least.

The original honda insight was suppose to be a sports car with a capacitor bank storage system.
