One car on show will be the Honda Clarity Fuel Cell, following the arrival of the first cars in Europe at the end of last year. Honda says the all-new Clarity is the world’s most advanced fuel cell vehicle and delivers a class-leading maximum range of 620 km (385 miles).
The arrival of the new Clarity in Europe as part of the Europe-wide HyFIVE (Hydrogen For Innovative Vehicles) initiative reinforces Honda’s continued efforts to drive increased adoption of fuel cell vehicles and the creation of a viable hydrogen refuelling infrastructure across the region.
Receiving its European show debut in Geneva, the Honda NeuV is a fully electric concept car with what Honda describes as a unique ownership proposition and a state-of-the-art ‘emotion engine’ that can learn about its driver.
The pure electric concept car explores a financially-beneficial ownership model for enterprising customers, by functioning as an automated ride sharing vehicle when the owner is not using the car. It would pick up and drop off customers at local destinations, and could also sell energy back to the electric grid during times of high demand when it‘s sitting idle, further monetising the vehicle’s down time.
NeuV also functions as an artificial intelligence assistant utilising an ‘emotion engine’, which learns from the driver by detecting the emotions behind their judgments. It can then apply what it has learnt from the driver’s past decisions to make new choices and recommendations.
