In the world of environmentally friendly cars Honda Clarity Fuel Cell has always been a bit of a bittersweet proposition. It is an excellent vehicle that outperforms all electric cars, including Tesla Model S, in terms of range, and it doesn’t need recharging. What it does need, though, is liquid hydrogen which is a tad hard to find.
The latest development in the story of Honda Clarity adds to that bittersweetness as it reveals the EPA estimate driving range for the sedan, which stands at a mighty impressive 366 zero-emission miles. And to think such a vehicle only takes three to five minutes to refuel… they really need to work on that hydrogen fueling infrastructure. It seems to be completely worth the effort.
But until then Honda is going to proceed with the Clarity with their cautious cap on, only leasing the vehicle through their expanded network of 12 approved fuel cell vehicle dealerships located in select California markets. As for the kind of specs you get with this car, the kit includes Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver assistive technologies, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for smartphone connectivity, distinctive LED exterior lighting and 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels, as well as cool colors like Crystal Black Pearl, White Orchid Pearl and signature Bordeaux Red Metallic.
