Honda Working on First Mass-Produced Hydrogen Car


Hon­da has start­ed pro­duc­tion of its FCX Clar­i­ty, which it plans to intro­duce as the world’s first-ever mass-pro­duced hydro­gen fuel-cell vehi­cle in about three years. Until then, Hon­da will build just over 200 of these cars. This comes at a time when hydro­gen vehi­cles receive much pub­lic atten­tion, but also crit­i­cism that this may not work very well, being too exot­ic and expen­sive to gain wide accep­tance. The lack of fill­ing sta­tions is also a fac­tor that could hurt mass pro­duc­tion and sales.
