Honda FCX Clarity

Alright so I may be way behind the 8 ball on this one, but I just saw a commercial for it last night while watching Bones or House, one of the 2. Decided to look it up this morning and see what it is about.

All I have to say is this is awesome technology to see in a car that will be on the streets of California next year, all about trying to remove dependency from oil, but not going to be the guy leading the way, just like to see it happening.

Drive FCX Clarity

The FCX Clarity is ready for the road. A limited number of
these groundbreaking vehicles will be leased to Southern
Californians starting during the summer of 2008.

The reason for this limited initial release is that in order to drive a fuel cell vehicle, you have to be able to refuel it. And since these clean cars do not run on gasoline, you canít just stop off at your regular corner gas station to fill up. Hydrogen fuel stations are critical to the deployment of a fuel cell car and, as it stands now, stations accessible to the public are still quite limited.

Therefore, only customers currently residing in the Torrance, Santa Monica and Irvine areas who meet additional qualification criteria will be eligible to take an FCX Clarity home. Honda wants to ensure that FCX Clarity drivers will be able to take their vehicles in for service at participating dealers and have convenient access to refueling stations. Sales will be handled through American Honda Motor Co., Inc. in conjunction with local dealers. Collision insurance and maintenance will all be covered by the three-year $600/month lease.
