Honda Plans to Lead in U.S. With Hydrogen Fuel Cell Car Aimed at Fleets

March 4, 2002

Honda Motor Co. Ltd. will start selling cars powered by nonpolluting hydrogen fuel cells in the United States next year, according to a Detroit Free Press story by Mark Phelan. With this move, Honda would likely be the first automaker to get a fuel-cell-powered passenger car to market anywhere.Initially, Honda would sell the fuel-cell cars to a limited number of fleet customers, not to the public. Honda expects to sell the vehicles to one or more fleet customers, probably inCalifornia, where its engineers could monitor the program closely. The cars will refuel at a centralized fueling station at a fleet owner's site.A number of automakers, including Honda, GM, DaimlerChrysler, Ford and Toyota Motor Corp., have fuel-cell-powered test vehicles in operation around the world.
