Honda Motor Co., Ltd. today announced a fuel cell-powered vehicle, the FCX-V3, that will be sent to participate in the California Fuel Cell Partnership program (CaFCP) scheduled to begin in November 2000. Honda has been considering public road testing to verify the potential fuel cell vehicle market in Japan and the United States, and participation in the general road testing being implemented by the CaFCP in the U.S. state of California will serve as a first step toward bringing the company’s fuel cell vehicle research into the market feasibility study stage.
