Honda Clarity Fuel Cell features a low, wide aerodynamic body with clean character lines. The premium-contented interior creates a refined experience with intuitive, streamlined controls. The Clarity Fuel Cell will be available in black, white and signature red exterior paint schemes. "We're pleased to be able to offer this first look at the U.S. version of the Clarity Fuel Cell sedan in advance of its market arrival later this year," said John Mendel, executive vice president, Automobile Division, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "The Clarity Fuel Cell is the first in an expanding portfolio of advanced electrified vehicles from Honda that will create a new pillar in our product lineup."

Technological innovations to the Clarity Fuel Cell include a fuel cell stack that is 33 percent more compact than its predecessor with a 60 percent increase in power density compared to the outgoing Honda FCX Clarity. The more compact fuel cell and integrated powertrain, comparable in size to a V-6 engine, now fit entirely under the hood of the car, allowing for a more spacious cabin with seating for five passengers. The new Clarity Fuel Cell will feature an anticipated U.S. EPA driving range to exceed 300 miles, with an anticipated refueling time of approximately three to five minutes. Slated to begin retail leasing to customers in select California markets before the end of 2016, the Clarity Fuel Cell is expected to be priced around $60,000 with a targeted monthly lease under $500.

The Clarity Fuel Cell's modern, lounge-inspired interior raises intuitive operation and digital connectivity to the next level by incorporating a floating 8-inch Display Audio touchscreen that serves as the nerve center for control of audio, navigation and other functions including energy monitor and a Hydrogen station locator. The new Display Audio is integrated with new Apple CarPlay and Android Auto platforms, providing seamless integration of smartphone features and functions, including app-based navigation, streaming audio, voice-controlled search capabilities, and access to a host of Apple- or Google-approved smartphone apps.
