The new high-output, compact electric motor that drives the FCX Clarity Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) is powerful and quiet for a smooth and efficient ride. This lightweight motor has its roots in the one developed by Honda for the EV Plus™ electric vehicle, yet it employs a new co-axial design. High efficiency over a broad output range with low noise is the main benefit of this next-generation motor.
The new motor was designed to take full advantage of the outstanding power-generating capability of the new Honda V Flow FC Stack
. The new FCX Clarity FCEV reduces intake noise and vibration in the air pump to achieve an even quieter, more comfortable ride than the previous model.
The lightweight, compact motor and unitized transmission in the FCX Clarity FCEV maximize the motor’s output for a smooth, efficient and quiet driving experience.
