Honda surprises with FC Sport concept

Honda FC Sport

This week’s LA Auto Show threw up its first surprise yesterday in the form of Honda’s FC Sport fuel cell design study. The designers at Honda’s advanced design studio decided to take advantage of the packaging flexibility afforded by a fuel cell powertrain and mid mounted it driving the rear wheels.

Using the vertical flow fuel stack mounted behind the driver and an electric motor between the rear wheels, the FC Sport is a three-seater in the style of the McLaren F1 where the driver sits in the middle of the car with the two passenger seats on either side and further back. The FC Sport is strictly a styling study right now, so a fully functional version seems unlikely, but this zero-emission technology may pop up again somewhere else in the future.
