Honda FCX Dash

The Honda FCX Fuel Cell Car.. the Honda Concept.. will put ultracapacitors on the road in 2008.  I think that everyone who owns a mobile phone knows something about rechargeable batteries, but not that many non engineers and nerds really know much about capacitors.  Ultracapacitors - aka supercapacitors have just made it big time!  Last week, Honda FCX announced that their vehiles would be sold to the general public in 2008. Like most other fuel cell driven vehicles, the Honda FCX will need an energy storage buffer for electric power between the fuel cell and the motor.  The Honda FCX uses a new ultra-capacitor rather than a normal conventional chemical battery.

Electrical storage is needed because fuel cells can't put out a lot of peak power for a given weight. Over time, Honda is confident its hydrogen fuel cells will supply enough energy to meet the demands of the normal motorist. Going uphill and overtaking other drivers, a FCX driver will need to take energy very fast; when idling or freewheeling, the driver will hardly need any; when braking, the energy should ideally go back into the energy storage system.
