Honda advances hydrogen strategy

Honda has celebrated the start of production of the all-new 2025 Honda CR-V e:FCEV fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) at the Performance Manufacturing Center (PMC) in Ohio, US.

The all-new CR-V e:FCEV is the only FCEV made the US, as well as the first production hydrogen FCEV in the US to combine an all-new US-made fuel cell system with plug-in EV charging capability. A compact CUV, the CR-V e:FCEV received a 270-mile EPA driving range rating, combining the fuel cell system with plug-in charging to provide up to 29 miles of EV driving around town with the flexibility of fast hydrogen refuelling for longer trips.

"The Performance Manufacturing Center was conceived as a small volume manufacturing facility with a focus on craftsmanship, and I'm proud of how our production technicians leveraged their experience building the Acura NSX to take on the challenge of making this all-new Honda CR-V e:FCEV," said Patrick McIntyre, Lead of PMC. "Producing a zero-emission fuel cell electric vehicle is one more step toward Honda's global goal of achieving carbon neutrality for our products and operations."

In addition to producing the Honda CR-V e:FCEV in the US, the next gen fuel cell system that powers it is also made in the US at Fuel Cell System Manufacturing LLC, in Brownstown, Michigan – the joint venture (JV) production facility established by Honda and General Motors (GM). The new fuel cell system was co-developed by Honda and GM, achieving higher efficiency and increased refinement, with durability performance doubled and cost reduced by two-thirds compared to the previous fuel cell system in the Honda Clarity Fuel Cell.
