Default Honda fuel cell works even in extreme cold

Honda fuel cell works even in extreme cold
Published May 19, 2006
http://www.washingtontimes.com/autow...0213-7019r.htm

The 2006 Honda FCX advanced-production fuel-cell vehicle is
becoming more practical with the announcement that the fuel stack that
debuted in 2005 has been improved.
The FCX is capable of starting and operating at temperatures as low
as -20C (-4F) with improved performance, range and reduced build
complexity.
For the first time on a fuel-cell-powered vehicle, Honda has
installed a navigation system that is capable of providing directions
and information on currently available hydrogen refueling stations.
Given that Honda recently delivered a vehicle to a retail customer,
this marks the first navigation system capable of guiding a retail
customer to use California's "Hydrogen Highway."
Honda developed the FC Stack that made its debut in 2005 with a
metal separator structure that is easier to manufacture and reduces the
number of necessary components by 50 percent, with the aim of
increasing stack longevity and reducing manufacturing costs.
Power output for 2006 has reached 107 horsepower and 201
foot-pounds of torque.
The hydrogen-powered Hon-da FCX is the only fuel-cell vehicle
certified by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and U.S. EPA for
everyday commercial use. CARB has also certified the FCX as a zero
emission vehicle (ZEV), and as a US EPA Tier-2 Bin-1, national low
emission vehicle (NLEV) with a range of 190 miles and seating for four
persons.

This is fine for you folks in the "Lower 48" but here in Alaska it would
mean that the fuel cell might not work too well for about 5 or 6 months a
year. By our way of thinking extreme cold is anything below about -45F.
Wonder how these would work in such temps?
