North American Debut of ‘Next-Generation Approach to Low-Carbon Mobility’
American Honda will stage the North American debut of its Honda Clarity Fuel Cell sedan at the Los Angeles Auto Show next week, “providing an early look at Honda’s next-generation approach to low-carbon mobility.”
The Clarity Fuel Cell car will be unveiled to the media on November 18. The car was first shown in Tokyo last month.
“The Clarity Fuel Cell five-passenger sedan will offer increased performance, range and efficiency as well as improved packaging,” Honda says, adding that Clarity is the world’s first production fuel cell sedan to house the entire fuel cell stack and drivetrain system in the front engine compartment.
The car will have a single-fill range of more than 300 miles and a fueling time of approximately three minutes. As previously reported, Honda has switched to 10,000-psi compressed hydrogen storage for the new vehicle (F&F, January 13).
The Clarity Fuel Cell is to launch in the U.S. in 2016, after its market introduction in Japan in March.
The show at the Los Angeles Convention Center is open to the public November 20-29.
