Click here to download printer friendly versionHonda was the world's first automaker to bring a fuel cell vehicle to market. The KIWAMI matches Honda's clean-performing fuel cell technology with the Japanese aesthetic of cleanliness to create an ideal sedan for the next generation. The Japanese aesthetic sensibility and values are expressed in this unique vehicle, with its quietly strong, minimalist stance. Kiwami's form embodies a simple, primitive beauty, yet advanced intelligent technologies concealed within ensure a quiet, safe, pleasant ride. Advanced packaging technology that made possible the lower floor ensures a roomy interior despite the vehicle's low roofline. The interior design reflects the Japanese sense of a luxurious, relaxing atmosphere. The latest in clean-running fuel cell technology meets the beauty of traditional Japan in this new premium sedan.

Honda's original fuel cell system combines a Honda manufactured, next-generation, high performance stack and DC motor with a next-generation hydrogen storage system to realize improved response and energy efficiency. An H-shaped layout for the control unit, ultracapacitor, fuel cell stack, hydrogen storage unit, and other components creates a low center of gravity, lower overall vehicle height, and a spacious interior, along with stable synchronized-control 4WD handling performance.

The interior design is based on the kind of feeling a Japanese experiences when contemplating a carefully tended garden, or watching the interplay of light and shadow on a paper screen. The KIWAMI's unique aesthetic harmonizes advanced features such as an exterior information display and panel-touch shifting with a traditional Japanese sensibility for the ultimate in comfort and hospitality.
