Other details if you’re still reading:
Built at Honda’s Tochigi R&D Center, where the Clarity FCEV is built. While most of the body comes from the Fit ICE, the body was modified so that the battery box could be placed beneath the floor and rear seat, very similar to the LEAF. The rear suspension was also modified and upgraded from the standard torsion beam to a multi-link independent design.
Body has 14% lower drag than standard US Fit ICE due to flat underbody, smaller front air intake and rear roof spoiler.
Brake system incorporates electric servo system, integrated with brake regeneration, allows a 5% higher energy recovery rate than conventional regenerative brakes.
Battery pack: 20 kWh air cooled Toshiba SCiB Lithium Titanate Oxide mounted under floor and rear seats in similar way to LEAF. Cooling air is drawn in from rear of car, blown over top of and then below battery pack, with heated air exhausted through twin outlets between rear wheels. Honda expects superior life expectancy through superior battery chemistry and active cooling as compared with the competition. http://www.toshiba.com/ind/data/tag_fil ... e_5383.pdf
