Well, we might see the FCX, since it was EPA approved years ago and honda does say it will come out next year,

Perhaps we'll see one... maybe two of those.... Likely we'll see them reincarnated as part of another vehicle...


The RX8 went from concept to production with almost no changes But that's rare :P

The FCX is fugly.

Have you seen frontal pictures of it? Looks completely freakish.

If you're going to go hydrogen fuel cell, I don't think the freaky aerodynamic design is really that necesary.

FCX Pics

I took some pics of FCX at the LA Auto show this past year (IMHO, I think it looks pretty good):

the 2nd generation FCX does look a bit more airodinamic then the 1st generation FCX, altho it looks to be the size of a whale! I guess it's coeficent of drage is pretty low with that shape, but the first generation FCX looked like a nice little car, to bad only 13 of them were ever introduced in to US fleets.
