No, there isn't a robot from I, Robot walking around near this 2015 Honda FCEV, which debuted at the LA Auto Show recently, but I wouldn't be surprised if there was one in the works. Visitors to the show got an up-close look at Honda's upcoming production fuel-cell electric vehicle that the carmaker will launch in the US and Japan in 2015 (yes, you read that correctly), followed by Europe shortly after. It's hard to know where to begin; its looks or its technical specs as both are impressive. It has a range of more than 300 miles on its 100kW hydrogen fuel cell stack, which is larger and more efficient than the motor in the FCX Clarity. This, of course, is a good thing since there is still a huge lack of fuel infrastructure to refuel these vehicles. Visually, the FCEV looks like it dominated the windtunnel with its long, sweeping body with a five-door body style and low overall profile. This is just the concept, but Honda intends to keep a lot of what we see here intact, hoping that its looks will draw in buyers and its technology will help spur the growth of the next generation of fuel-cell vehicles.
