Honda Files Patent for Fuel Cell Motorcycle Tech
Honda Motor Co. has filed a U.S. patent application for an air-intake system for a fuel cell-powered motorcycle.
The carmaker, which produces the Clarity fuel cell sedan, has received several patents for fuel cell-related motorcycle systems in recent years. Honda also has a partnership with General Motors Co. to develop and produce next-generation fuel cell stacks in Michigan.
The latest patent describes an airflow system to help prevent dust and water from collecting in the fuel cell system. The hydrogen tank would be located under the rider’s seat.
The Mazda CX-5 first appeared on the scene in 2012, and for 2017, the vehicle has undergone some major transformations, to enhance what was already a notable small crossover.
The 2016 model is all-new. As in platform and everything else. And the platform—which will have global use—was developed in North America.
Hyundai's product onslaught continues with a new compact that's bigger, more stylish and more efficient than its predecessor. And its development cycle is faster than the competition.
