Honda announced that the 2025 CR-V e:FCEV will be available for customer leasing in California starting later this year.

Honda has unveiled the 2025 Honda CR-V e:FCEV, America’s first production plug-in hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle. This compact CUV boasts a 270-mile EPA driving range rating and combines a new U.S.-made fuel cell system with plug-in charging capability, offering up to 29 miles of EV driving for local trips and fast hydrogen refuelling for longer journeys.

Mamadou Diallo, senior vice president of Auto Sales at American Honda Motor Co., emphasized that Honda’s fuel cell technology expertise is vital for achieving carbon neutrality by 2050 and fulfilling their strategy to reach 100% zero-emission automobile sales by 2040, including the introduction of models like the CR-V e:FCEV. This vehicle will be available for customer leasing in California starting later this year.

The CR-V e:FCEV comes with standard features such as HondaLink, which provides hydrogen station information, charging, and power supply data. The included Honda Power Supply Connector offers a 110-volt power outlet that can deliver up to 1,500 watts of power, making the CR-V e:FCEV a clean power source for small home appliances, portable air conditioners, power tools, camping equipment, and more.

Honda’s experience in the hydrogen fuel cell vehicle market began with the Honda FCX in December 2002, the world’s first zero-emission fuel cell electric vehicle certified for everyday use by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the California Air Resources Board (CARB). The CR-V e:FCEV is manufactured at Honda’s Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, Ohio, making it the only fuel cell electric passenger vehicle made in America.

This 5-passenger CUV features the second-generation Honda Fuel Cell Module, produced at Fuel Cell System Manufacturing, LLC (FCSM) in Michigan. This module offers improved durability, higher efficiency, increased refinement, and lower cost compared to Honda’s previous-generation fuel cell system. Developed in collaboration with General Motors (GM), the next-generation module reduces costs by two-thirds compared to the Honda Clarity Fuel Cell system, achieved through innovative materials, cell sealing structure advancements, equipment simplification, productivity improvements, and the use of corrosion-resistant materials. Additionally, the system’s durability has doubled, and low-temperature performance has significantly improved.
