Basis of the zero emission vehicle, the Highlander SUV. For the drive, a 90 kW/122 hp electric motor, by a hydrogen fuel cell with the same power with power. As an interim storage is a nickel-metal hydride batteries are used. Compared with the previous model, the new version of an eight litres to 156 litres larger tank. The range will be up to 830 kilometers.
Also as leasing vehicles are available in Japan, the fuel cell car Honda FCX Clarity and Nissan X-Trail FCV. Of the controlled daily tests the companies hope to draw lessons for the large-scale production. With fuel cell cars for everyone, however, is the earliest towards the end of next decade..
