Hydrogen Fuel Is Included Too: Up to $15,000 Worth
American Honda said today that its hydrogen-powered Clarity Fuel Cell sedan will be in California dealerships by year-end, and that the zero-emission car will lease for $369 per month.
The deal includes an “attractive” 20,000-mile annual allowance, Honda says, as well as up to $15,000 worth of hydrogen fuel, and 24/7 roadside assistance for the five-passenger sedan for three years.
Honda requires $2,499 down plus the first month’s payment at lease signing, plus tax, registration and official fees.
366 Miles on a Hydrogen Fill
“With an EPA driving range rating of 366 miles, fast refueling and a growing network of hydrogen stations in key California markets, the Clarity Fuel Cell offers an experience on par with traditional gasoline vehicles,” American Honda environmental business development VP Steve Center said in a release.
“Launching the Honda Clarity Fuel Cell at an affordable lease price will enable more consumers to enjoy the benefits of this spacious and well-equipped fuel cell vehicle,” he said.
12 California Dealers
Retail leasing will be made available to residents who live or work near Honda’s network of 12 approved fuel cell vehicle dealerships located in select California markets.
The network includes six dealerships in Southern California, five in the San Francisco Bay Area, and one in Sacramento. Honda says it “will further develop its dealer network as consumer friendly hydrogen fueling stations become available.”
Honda says that it has “led the industry for nearly two decades in the development and deployment of fuel cell vehicle technology through extensive real-world testing and customer deployments, including the world’s first government fleet customers and first-ever retail fuel cell vehicle consumer leasing program.”
