Honda Motor Co. Ltd. has developed a new fuel-cell stack that can operate at below-freezing temperatures. Honda says the stack delivers improved performance, range and energy efficiency and is more easily recycled, in addition to being able to operate at temperatures as low as 20°F (-4°C). Honda says it will be starting public road testing of the vehicle’s cold-start capability, in an effort to increase proliferation of fuel-cell vehicles.
