Honda said the expanded driving range was the result of more efficient fuel cells and a lighter car body.
The five-seat FCV will be released in March and be priced between 7 million yen ($56,500) and 8 million yen, on a par with the 7.2-million-yen Mirai.
Released in December, Toyota’s four-seat Mirai is the world’s first FCV to be sold commercially. It has a range of 650 km on a full charge.
FCVs have a longer driving range than electric vehicles and are powered by electricity generated through a reaction between hydrogen and oxygen in the air. As the vehicles emit only water while running, they are also called the “ultimate eco-cars.”
Nissan Motor Co. is also planning to market an FCV in 2017.
Competition among automakers to develop and improve technologies for FCVs is expected to continue.
