Honda Clarity - Fuel Cell Vehicle spec's

Honda's most innovative car to date. The Clarity - technical specifications, leasing information, frequently asked questions, and even a list of hydrogen fueling stations.
While first developed as a concept car Eleven years ago, in 1999, the very first deliverable version of the Honda Clarity was released in 2002. Since then, the Clarity has become increasingly efficient both in terms of mileage and power. The 2008-9 FCX is the most recent version of the car, (Second Lease program). The 2008-9 FCX Clarity released in a limited lease program the summer of 2008 in Southern California, which is one of the few States with enough infrastructure to support it.  The remaining 49 States can forgo the expense of developing an expensive Hydrogen infra structure due to the latest developments in Micro H2 Fueling station:
