The Honda FCX Clarity is a sleekly styled hydrogen fuel cell-powered sedan currently available on a limited retail basis in Southern California. The vehicle is a key part of Honda's efforts to successfully develop, certify and market zero-emissions vehicles. Propelled by an electric motor that runs on electricity generated in a fuel cell, the FCX Clarity's only emission is water, and its fuel efficiency is three times that of a similar-sized gasoline-powered automobile. The FCX Clarity's performance and acceleration are comparable to a 2.4-liter, 4-cylinder engine with an EPA certified range of 240 miles. The compact and powerful Honda V Flow Fuel Cell Stack allows for unprecedented spaciousness and a futuristically stylish, low-slung design and spacious interior.
The FCX Clarity performed pace car duties at several races including the IZOD IndyCar Series, Firestone Indy Lights events and Acura Sports Car Challenge.
