We are not talking about a Fuel Cell solution but a three-cylinder one liter displacement that uses hydrogen instead of classic gasoline. Performance has not been declared. In any case, the Japanese brand explains that the powerplant stores compressed hydrogen in a high-pressure tank and precisely exploits the hydrogen via direct injectors.

According to the manufacturer, thanks to this technical choice results in a very reactive engine in response thanks to the rapid combustion of hydrogen. In addition, the consumption of engine oil while driving is; reduced to a minimum, resulting in a reduction in CO2 emissions.
