So Honda has a fuel cell car ready to where’s the infrastructure?

When: 17 2010

Where: London,

What: Honda FCX Clarity

International first drive

Honda FCX Clarity is the Japanese idea of the future of motoring. technically very impressive, but are some major hurdles to if it’s ever to become a production reality.

The Honda FCX is a hydrogen fuel cell That means it generates its own by using a tank of hydrogen to the fuel cell. This all place in a box about the size of a suitcase. According to Honda means the designers have reign with the Clarity’s unrestricted by the packaging constraints conventional powertrains deliver.

It’s difficult not to be slightly as a result, as the FCX Clarity looks a big Honda Insight. That’s to be down to the wind tunnel and the for ultimate economy, but given this is a serious look the future it all appears a bit ordinary.

it’s a bit more Buck as modern as a dashboard resembling a digital graphic equaliser of a Awia mini-hifi circa is.

What you get for your Money

The car you see is one of just 35 FCX Claritys to have built on a dedicated production Honda has been building the FCX since 2008, so it’s to say it isn’t popping off the production at the same rate as the Jazz or Being largely hand the fuel cell technology so and the materials within it so expensive, the FCX should come with a price with six zeros. it’s being leased to and individuals as part of Honda’s of the technology.

Consider that and the costs of about €450 a are quite inexpensive. You can’t one in this part of the world with leased Claritys limited to California and Japan for

The FCX Clarity uses technology NASA uses to power stations, with hydrogen turned into electricity by use of a cell. What’s impressive is it drives like an ordinary Pop the unnecessarily over-designed automatic selector into drive and off. Quietly. Like all vehicles the FCX Clarity is near on the road.

It rides decently the steering is a bit vague and the brakes a bit but in the five miles or so we drove it the FCX felt entirely production

Unlike conventional plug-in vehicles the FCX Clarity has a decent — around 435 kilometres. To go you need to fill it with which is where the problem as there’s no hydrogen filling in Ireland. There’s one emerging in while Japan and California are pushing ahead with but otherwise the FCX Clarity is stuck in a future tech Catch-22.

Hydrogen might be one of the most elements on the planet, but its production a form for consumption currently with a big CO 2 penalty. Obviously is pushing more sustainable of production, but presently only two percent of hydrogen production can be ‘green’. It’ll need a shift in methods if fuel cars are to credibly replace internal combustion engined — rather than push the CO 2 production and fossil consumption further up the supply

Given that production cell vehicles have ‘twenty years away’ for a time now, the fact Honda has achieved the production of one is impressive indeed. It sees the FCX as the future, and certainly it removes the charge, low range issues of plug-in electric cars. that it brings its own problems, the green production, distribution and of the hydrogen required to fill it.

If not insignificant hurdles can be conquered fuel cells represent a future solution for clean but we might be waiting 20 years or yet still and battery charge performance and range is getting better with conventional vehicles.
