Honda to highlight new FCV, NSX hybrid, NEOWING hybrid, production model of Odyssey Hybrid at Tokyo Motor Show
At the upcoming 44th Tokyo Motor Show 2015, Honda will showcase its all-new fuel cell vehicle—tentatively being called the FCV&mdash NSX hybrid supercar, and NEOWING three-wheeler hybrid, as well as stage the Japan premiere of the all-new Civic Type R and the planned production model of the Odyssey Hybrid equipped with the further advanced SPORT HYBRID-iMMD (Intelligent Multi-Mode Drive) system.
The new FCV sedan consolidates the entire fuel-cell powertrain under the hood of a sedan-type vehicle. This powertrain layout enabled a full cabin package that seats five adults comfortably. The FCV features a cruising range of more than 700 km (435 miles) on the JC08 mode. When paired with an external power feeding inverter, this FCV can function as a “mobile power plant” that generates and provides electricity to the community in the case of an emergency.
The all-new NSX is a supercar model that features the new-generation direct-injected twin turbo VTEC V6 engine mounted on a lightweight vehicle body in a mid-ship layout together with the high-output SPORT HYBRID SH-AWD (Super Handling-All Wheel Drive) hybrid system.
The all-new Civic Type R features the first application of Honda’s new 2.0-liter VTEC TURBO engine. The combination of original Honda VTEC technology, direct-injection technology and a turbocharger realized peak power output of 310 PS and peak torque of 400 N·m—both higher than for any previous Honda Type R model.
In combination with the 6-speed manual transmission, the Civic Type R development car set the world lap time record for a mass-production front-wheel drive vehicles at the Nürburgring Nordschleife in Germany.
NEOWING is a three-wheeled vehicle that offers the cornering feel and sporty ride equivalent to a large-sized motorcycle while realizing excellent stability in low-speed ranges. This vehicle is equipped with a hybrid system that combines a horizontally-opposed 4-cylinder engine and electric motors to generate plentiful torque for powerful acceleration.
