2025 Honda CR-V: a blend of hydrogen and electric power

Honda has revealed a new hydrogen fuel-cell car, the 2025 Honda CR-V e:FCEV, for the US market. Demonstrating the automakers’ commitment to adding hydrogen fuel-cell technology to its vehicle lineup.

The fuel-cell electric car can travel up to 270 miles according to EPA ratings, and it also has the ability to drive purely on electric power for up to 29 miles. The Fuel Cell System Manufacturing (FCSM) joint venture between General Motors and Honda produces fuel cell modules to develop the CR-V e:FCEV, a compact crossover SUV. It is unclear how much it will cost, but Californians will be able to lease it later this year.

The fuel cell modules produce an estimated 92.2 kW of power, or 174 horsepower and 229 ft-lb of torque. The battery can receive a charge through either a Level 2 charger or a regular power socket and has an energy capacity of 17.7 kWh. Additionally, the FCEV can charge in both directions and provide a modest 1.5kW of power for camping gear or small household appliances.

With an overall length of 187.6 inches, the wheelbase is 106.3 inches, the same as the gas-powered 2024 model.

Honda will include its linked app, HondaLink, which provides information on hydrogen fuelling stations, as standard equipment with the FCEV. One of the biggest obstacles for anyone purchasing Honda’s new SUV will be finding a hydrogen fueling station. According to the Hydrogen Fuel Cell Partnership, California is home to just 55 hydrogen stations.
