A potential third-generation, all-electric Acura NSX could be a showcase of Honda's technological prowess with a driver-focused EV supercar.
I love that thing. It's like a cyberpunk 240sx.They will have to do better than the Hyundai N74.
Japan is building a massive H2 infrastructure for all of the main islands. They plan to eventually replace all LNG, coal and oil with it by 2050.Don't fuel cells run on hydrogen? Waiting to recharge could be a dream compared to searching for a hydrogen station?
Again the Hyundai N74 is pretty much that "new EV NSX" (or more like "new EV De Lorean") in spirit. Next-gen power generation, timeless Giugiaro design (that inspired the De Lorean by the way), pushing the limits of current mainstream technology. Honda has been disappointing so far in the EV game (the Honda E looks really fine but has terrible range) - I'm a car enthusiast, I'd buy that N74 if the price was not out of my reach (and if they make as a production model of course).Electric car traits seem antithetical to the original NSX
This. Compressing the hydrogen for storage needs too much energy. Green hydrogen is a myth for automobiles. The tailpipe emissions may be water, but the energy required to make it and compress it means it only make sense where you are trying to move your pollution, not reduce it, so maybe aeroplanes & rockets. It's like EV's running on coal-generated electricity. Kind of reminds me of Ethanol in gasoline. Maybe cheaper, but there's less energy in it, so less MPG, and the emissions to make it turned out not be any better than gasoline.A fuel cell NSX would make sales of the NA1/Na2 and NC1 look brisk. Building the infrastructure for hydrogen is much more problematic than building the infrastructure for chargers and then there is problem of producing the hydrogen. Hydrogen is the fuel of the future and always will be.
Except we probably have a global economic catastrophe building that will be every bit as disruptive as the one that threw off Honda's original NC1 plans.Gen 3 will appear much faster than the NC1, which basically had to be designed twice before it was released. Honda has been working on the platform for a while.
