What Is a Hydrogen Fuel Cell Car? What Is The Clarity?

January 20th, 2016 by

You may be asking yourself “Whats better than a hybrid?” well thats simple, a Hydrogen Fuel Cell car! Let me introduce you to one of the most fuel efficient cars Honda has, the Honda Clarity. Honda first introduced the Clarity to the world in 2008 and since then its been a hit. The Clarity is only sold in the states in California because its the only state to have a Hydrogen Fuel Station, which is used to power the car.

What is a Hydrogen Fuel Cell car? It is a car that is powered by hydrogen and oxygen which generates into electricity to the motor to make it run. Since Hydrogen is involved and is being converted into electricity  it produces water and heat as its byproduct. This means that instead of smoke coming out of your exhaust on those cold mornings you’ll have water coming out instead! Which helps the economy out a lot since fuel cell cars today cut emissions by 30%!
Next question I bet you’re asking, “How can you get the Clarity and how much does it cost?”. The general price for the Honda Clarity is $60,000 but you are only allowed to lease the car for under $500. You have to live in California to be able to get this car and have to live by one of the few Hydrogen fuel stations, so only a select few will be able to have the Clarity since its not a mass production car. You’ll be able to get this car in the spring of 2016 if you reside in California!
