Clarity uses energy from hydrogen combining oxygen in a fuel cell to electricity, which powers the Water is the only byproduct, in an emissions-free vehicle. Electricity flows out of the fuel cell as as hydrogen and oxygen keep in.

High-tech bio-fabrics consisting of made by fermenting corn the seats. The interior is all plant-based, Kent Dellinger, government manager at American Honda

In addition to its advanced technology, the has features drivers expect as adjustable seats that can be or cooled, a booming sound an auxiliary jack and plenty of and storage space. Hydrogen is using a connector located a small door similar to is found in gas powered cars.

Ed Cohen, American Honda president of government and industry says all of these touches make alternative fueled marketable.We believe that in for advanced technology vehicles to be in the marketplace, they must the same full function and parameters as traditional internal engine vehicles.

A tank in the car’s rear compressed hydrogen needed for cells, which are located in the fuel cell stack. The cell stack fits in a between the front seats and is hydrogen mixes with generating electricity. A lithium ion behind the back seat free energy generated by and acts as a supplemental power The power drive governs the of electricity and an electric drive moves the car.

  The result is a quiet and clean ride.

At 61 per kilogram of hydrogen, (one of hydrogen is the energy equivalent of one of gas) Clarity is among the fuel efficient vehicles in The car can be driven 240 miles before it to be refueled, which is a quick Refueling time takes five minutes, Kent

Since there are only a few refueling stations throughout the Clarity is only available for in select cities. For almost two now, we have been them to consumers and we started off in California because that’s there are stations, Kent We wanted to make sure we did it in a where consumers would no roadblocks.

Residents of Torrance, Santa and Irvine who qualify can lease the for three years at $600 a which includes maintenance and

Honda made Clarity for lease in 2008 and plans to out a small fleet of the cars in California to demonstrate the capabilities of fuel cell technology.

Ed Honda’s approach could be a for building America’s hydrogen car We believe that adopting a approach, where a station is and vehicles are leased or sold in to that station, can better the economic viability of the infrastructure.

Once several clusters are stations will be installed to the clusters and increase the realistic range of vehicles.

The Department of has been an important partner in the of hydrogen fuel cell Ed says. Although DOE did not directly Honda, EERE’s [The of Energy Efficiency and Renewable funding for RD of fuel cell and technologies has been critical in manufacturers to meet their goals and supply OEMs equipment manufacturers] with and fuel cell components.

Ed Clarity proves that cell vehicles offer the performance and function they are to.

Fuel cell electric like Clarity are the best term solution to our nation’s needs, he says.
