Honda has positioned hydrogen/fuel cell technology as an important future technology for realizing a low-carbon society as a measure against global warming, and has been developing fuel cell vehicle (FCV) from an early stage. In 2002, it launched the world's first FCV, and launched a sedan Type FCV in 2008 and FCV that fuel cell system is installed under engine hood in 2016. Currently, it is co-developed with GM for the next one. Although performance issues have been predicted, efforts such as cost reduction and quality assurance of fuel cell stack remain as barriers in case of mass production. This presentation summarizes the technical issues of FCV development and explains the possibilities for various applications. At the same time, FCV will be explained not only as a means of transportation but also as a means of contributing to various social unrests that are currently occurring.
