What To Expect

The Hyundai Nexo and Toyota Mirai are the only two hydrogen-powered cars on sale in the U.S. That's expected to change in the near future with the introduction of the 2025 Honda CR-V Fuel Cell that’s being built in partnership with General Motors. The CR-V Fuel Cell will be Honda’s second hydrogen-powered car, following the Clarity Fuel cell, which was discontinued in 2021. Here’s what we know about the 2025 Honda CR-V Fuel Cell.

The 2025 Honda CR-V Fuel Cell will have a similar design to the current CR-V that’s on sale, but will have a few unique touches. The front end of the CR-V Fuel Cell features slim headlights, a thin grille, a wide air intake, and chiseled edges on the front fascia. The back of the hydrogen SUV has L-shaped taillights that start at the roofline and end halfway up the liftgate, a prominent body line in liftgate, and a black horizontal trim piece that outlines the Honda badge. Compared to the gas-powered CR-V, the CR-V Fuel Cell has a slightly sportier design.

Based on images that Honda has shared of the 2025 CR-V Fuel Cell, the SUV will have a similar design to the regular CR-V. The SUV will have an elegant design with a simple dashboard, honeycomb trim that covers the air vents, a central touchscreen that sits on top of the dash, and physical controls for the HVAC system. Unlike the gas-powered CR-V that has a traditional gear shifter, the CR-V Fuel Cell will have push-button controls for the transmission.
