"Honda envisions a day when fuel cell cars are the norm, and personal mobility is no longer incompatible with a clean and sustainable environment. That's our dream, and that's what powers our ongoing efforts to knock down the barriers to its mass market appeal," said Steven Center, vice president of Connected and Environmental Business Development at American Honda.

Honda also highlighted a list of "Fuel Cell Vehicle Firsts" accomplished by the company, such as producing the first Environmental Protection Agency and California Air Resources Board certified fuel cell vehicle in 2002.

Recently, Honda announced with Shell and Toyota the introduction of seven new hydrogen refueling stations in Northern California, working toward the state's goal of 100 stations that leverages a grant from the California Energy Commission.

Honda is also active in associations like the Hydrogen Council, Fuel Cell & Hydrogen Energy Association, California Fuel Cell Partnership and H2USA that share the same vision and goals to create the conditions necessary for hydrogen-powered mobility and the hydrogen economy to thrive and grow.
