Honda has unveiled the Honda FC Sport design study model at the Los Angeles Auto Show which is a three-seat sports car concept which is powered by hydrogen.
The Honda FC Sport emphasizes the design flexibility and potential of Honda’s V Flow fuel cell technology, already in use on Honda FCX Clarity sedan and reconfigures the technology into a lightweight sports car design with ultra-low center of gravity, powerful electric motor performance and zero-emissions.
The FC Sport is designed to accommodate a custom-formed high-power fuel cell stack located between the rear seats and a battery pack positioned low in the middle of the concept sports car. The electric motor is located just forward of the rear axle while two fuel storage tanks are located above the rear axle which is visible from the above.
Inside, the Honda FC Sport has enough space for three seating positions where the driver seat is located at the center position while the two rear passenger seats are located at the left and right side of the driver’s seat. For entry to the vehicle, the enclosed canopy opens upward from the rear.
The Honda FC Sport was developed by the Advanced Design Studio of Honda R&D Americas, in Pasadena, California led by Jason Wilbur.
