Honda showcases Clarity Fuel Cell vehicle and Autonomous prototype at G7 Summit

Japanese car maker Honda has shown two of its future-focussed vehicles at this week’s Group of Seven (G7) Summit in Japan.

Both the hydrogen-powered Honda Clarity Fuel Cell vehicle (FCV) as well as the company’s Accord Hybrid-based autonomous drive vehicle were on show at the event.

The G7 event, held in the Ise-Shima region of Japan, saw the vehicles provided to support the Japanese government’s plans to promote the country’s innovativeness on the world stage.

Set up in a purpose-built exhibition space at the Summit, Honda also took the opportunity to show a number of its other products.

These included the UNI-CUB β, Honda’s new personal mobility system, the MC-β micro-sized electric vehicle and the Honda Walking Assist Device, a product the company hopes will be used in the training of walking.

Honda also introduced its ‘smart community’ vision, based on the company’s future image of a ‘hydrogen society’.

As an added bonus, Honda offered the opportunity to test and experience its innovative products at the Ministers’ Meeting held at the event.
