So.. Ultracapacitors have characteristics of both batteries and capacitors... that is why Honda is developing the Fuel Cell Stack for thier cars like the Honda FCX.  Honda has equipped the FCX with a system that combines a fuel cell stack and ultra-capacitor with onboard high-pressure hydrogen tanks. The newly developed Honda Fuel Cell Stack, will  generage more power more efficiently than its previous version.

The Ultracapacitor Fuel Cell Stack will server as the main power source, while the independent ultra-capacitor contributes its outstanding storage capabilities as a supplementary power source to deliver ample drive power to the motor. The result is highly efficient driving performance: high-output, high-response driving and excellent fuel economy. And to ensure plenty of space in a compact body, the FCX employs high-pressure hydrogen fuel tanks capable of storing a large volume of hydrogen in a small space, along with a more compact fuel cell system and highly efficient packaging thanks to an optimum placement of the system components on a custom platform.
