Advanced Fuel Cell Vehicle

The FCX Clarity is a next-generation, zero-emissions, hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicle based on the entirely-new Honda V Flow fuel cell platform, and powered by the highly compact, efficient and powerful Honda V Flow fuel cell stack.

Vehicles that use hydrogen fuel cell technology instead of gasoline are about the cleanest around because they emit only water vapor into the air. They also use hydrogen from domestic energy sources, reducing our dependence on oil. And driving fuel cell vehicles significantly reduces the amount of carbon dioxide emissions, helping to slow the increase in greenhouse gases.

The most distinctive feature of the FCX Clarity Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) — other than the fuel cell itself — is the streamlined layout made possible by its compact and efficient powertrain components.

And make no mistake — the FCX Clarity FCEV is an electric car. The fuel cell combines hydrogen with oxygen to make electricity. The electricity then powers the electric motor, which in turn propels the vehicle.

Water is the only byproduct the FCX Clarity FCEV leaves behind. Featuring tremendous improvements to driving range, power, weight and efficiency — and boasting a low-slung, dynamic and sophisticated appearance, previously unachievable in a fuel cell vehicle — the FCX Clarity marks the significant progress Honda continues to make in advancing the real-world performance and appeal of the hydrogen-powered fuel cell car.

From the start, Honda engineers designed this car to be tons of fun to drive. The FCX Clarity Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) has a smooth and powerful electric engine for a great overall driving experience. Information gleaned from multiple generations of Honda fuel cell vehicles pays off right now. Compared to the previous model, the powertrain on this next-generation FCX Clarity FCEV:

Is over 397 pounds lighter

Has 120% better power-to-weight ratio

Is 20% more fuel efficient

Is 45% more compact and 10% more energy-efficient

Free and Clear

First, the basics: the FCX Clarity is an electric vehicle. A fuel cell vehicle is powered by an electric motor running on electricity generated by a hydrogen-powered fuel cell stack. The more efficient Honda E-Drive electric motor lets you drive with peace of mind knowing that you are helping to reduce the amount of CO2 being released in our atmosphere.

The compact coaxial motor is quieter and can run at higher rpm, for greater efficiency and speed.

Get Vertical

The Vertical Flow (V Flow) fuel cell stack is one of Honda’s greatest breakthroughs in this area. The new design is smaller, allowing for better packaging efficiency. With a smaller stack, there’s room for more people. This ingenious design allows higher cell voltage stability and reduces the amount of heat generated.

Gravity also helps with drainage of the excess water.

The compact, high-efficiency lithium-ion battery pack is used as a supplemental power source capturing lost energy during deceleration and braking. The new lithium-ion battery delivers improved performance and energy recovery in a more lightweight, compact package. The new battery is significantly lighter and smaller than the ultra-capacitor of the 2005 FCX, allowing it to be stowed under the rear seat.

This gives the car more passenger space and a bigger trunk.

Low Profile

Stylish Definitely. It’s time to take another look at the FCX Clarity FCEV. This new model has a lower floor and sleeker overall design thanks to integration of the more compact stack and smaller powertrain. Thin A-pillars allow better visibility.

A flat-bottom underbody reduces aerodynamic drag and increases efficiency.

We believe high safety standards can apply to all vehicles — even the groundbreaking ones. Six airbags, a reinforced unit-body structure, a Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) and Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) systems are standard.

Honda Motor Co. Ltd introduced the Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) in 2003. CMBS can help alert the driver to certain potential collisions and, through the use of visual and audio alerts plus an automatic tug of the seat belt, prompt the driver to take action.

If a collision cannot be avoided, the system automatically retracts slack in the front seat belts and applies braking force to reduce the vehicle’s speed and help lessen the force of the collision.
