Honda’s 2025 CR-V e:FCEV offers three leasing options

Honda has announced the lease options for the 2025 Honda CR-V e:FCEV, the first production plug-in hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle made in the United States. The vehicle will be available for lease in California starting on July 9. Customers can choose from three lease options: a three-year lease at $459 per month with 36,000 miles, a six-year lease at $389 per month with 72,000 miles, or a two-year lease at $489 per month with 60,000 miles. Each lease includes a hydrogen refueling credit, with the three-year lease offering $15,000 in credits.

The CR-V e:FCEV has an EPA-rated driving range of 270 miles, combining a U.S.-made fuel cell system with plug-in charging capability. This setup provides up to 29 miles of electric vehicle (EV) driving for shorter trips and the flexibility of quick hydrogen refueling for longer distances. The vehicle will be available through 12 approved Honda dealerships in California, including six in Southern California, five in the San Francisco Bay Area, and one in Sacramento.

In addition to competitive leasing terms, the CR-V e:FCEV includes up to 21 days of access to a rental vehicle from Avis while in California, 24/7 roadside assistance, and eligibility for California’s Clean Air Vehicle Stickers, allowing single-occupant access to high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes. The lease options are based on a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $50,000, with no purchase option available.

The vehicle features a 10.2-inch digital instrumentation display, a 9-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, wireless phone charging, a 12-speaker Bose audio system, power-adjustable heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, a power tailgate, parking sensors, and bio-based leather seat upholstery. The HondaLink system includes expanded capabilities such as hydrogen station information and power supply data. The included Honda Power Supply Connector can deliver up to 1,500 watts of power, making the CR-V e:FCEV a clean power source for small appliances and equipment.

The CR-V e:FCEV is manufactured at Honda’s Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, Ohio. It is the first application of the second-generation Honda Fuel Cell Module, co-developed with General Motors and produced at Fuel Cell System Manufacturing LLC in Michigan. This new module offers improved durability, efficiency, refinement, and lower cost compared to previous models.

Honda has over two decades of experience with hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, starting with the Honda FCX in 2002, the world’s first zero-emission fuel cell electric vehicle to receive certification for everyday use from both the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the California Air Resources Board (CARB).
