Honda’s production fuel-cell vehicle getting rave reviews

2008 Honda FCX Clarity

This is big. Huge. Honda has made a production hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicle. Sure, experimental models have been buzzing around L.A. for a while (the city of Los Angeles leased several).

But this will be more available to Joe (or Joan) Public. Provided he (or she) lives near a hydrogen-equipped filling station like the ones in Santa Monica, Torrance and Irvine.

The car is Accord-sized (though rear head room looks a little tight) and has a fuel cell stack and battery pack much smaller than previous Honda fuel cell cars. It really looks like the company got it right with this one.

The car will go on sale next summer.
