Honda FCX Clarity: Hydrogen-powered car

Wednesday, June 18, 2008

In the midst of a worsening oil crisis, here's some good news. Honda has finally released the Honda FCX Clarity sedan in the market. The car is a zero-emission, Hydrogen and electric-powered car which is said to be the first step to a world of no petroleum/no pollution.

From Associated Press: "The FCX Clarity, which runs on hydrogen and electricity, emits only water and none of the noxious fumes believed to induce global warming. It is also two times more energy efficient than a gas-electric hybrid and three times that of a standard gasoline-powered car, the company says."

Honda expects to lease only "a few dozen" models this year, "and about 200 units within three years. In California, a three-year lease will run $600 a month, which includes maintenance and collision coverage." The first cars will be delivered to customers who applied for leases on Honda's website over the last year. Though Honda won't explain how it chose its first few dozen customers from over 50,000 applications, it's worth noting that the chosen few include "actress Jamie Lee Curtis and filmmaker husband Christopher Guest, actress Laura Harris, and film producer Ron Yerxa."
