For over two decades, Honda engineers have been dedicated to building a zero-emissions car that will help protect the natural environment for our children and future generations. Powered by an electric motor and utilizing a Honda-developed fuel-cell stack, the FCX Clarity emits no CO2, which scientists say is a major contributor to climate change.
When Honda unveiled the first Honda fuel-cell vehicle in 1999, the fuel-cell stack in the vehicle was very large and bulky. By developing and working to perfect our own Honda fuel-cell stacks, Honda has made them significantly smaller, lighter, more compact and more powerful. As a result, the design of the vehicle itself has also gone from tall and boxy to sleek and elegant with a roomy and comfortable cabin.
Honda has brought the fuel-cell vehicle from the lab to the fleet and now, to the public. A limited number of FCX Clarity vehicles will be available for lease to qualified Southern California customers in mid-2008. And Honda is already preparing to expand the availability of these amazing vehicles as soon as convenient fueling options become more widely available.
