Honda FCEV Concept to Make World Debut at 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show 
Tokyo, Nov 12, 2013 - (JCN Newswire) -  Today a sketch was released of the
Honda FCEV Concept in advance of its debut at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show on
November 20. The concept model expresses a potential styling direction for
Honda's next-generation fuel-cell electric vehicle (FCEV) launching in the
U.S and Japan in 2015 and later in Europe. 
"The Honda FCEV Concept demonstrates the company's vision for the
future of personal mobility and our commitment to developing advanced
alternative fuel vehicles," said Mike Accavitti, senior vice president of
American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "As we work toward the introduction of our
next-generation fuel-cell vehicle in 2015, our long-term experience with
fuel-cell technologies will help us pave a way towards a zero-emissions
future." 
Honda has led the industry in the development and deployment of fuel-cell
electric vehicles. In 2002, Honda was the first automaker to begin a retail
initiative with the leasing of its fuel-cell electric vehicles to fleet
customers. Honda also was the first automaker to put a fuel-cell electric
vehicle in the hands of an individual retail consumer in 2005. Today, about two
dozen customers are driving the FCX Clarity - enjoying the benefits of driving
this advanced technology vehicle, while also contributing valuable experience,
helping Honda to advance fuel-cell technology for the future. 
Further details about the Honda FCEV Concept and the enhanced 2014 Civic,
America's best-selling compact car, will be revealed on Nov. 20 at 1:35
p.m. PST at the Los Angeles Auto Show. For photos showing the styling direction

Scientists' (UCS) rankings of overall vehicle environmental performance
since 2000, and numerous Honda vehicles have been awarded top green accolades
from the America Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE), appearing on
