Honda FCX

Fuel cell-powered FCX Clarity leased to owners in Japan

Honda has begun deliveries of the FCX Clarity - a stylish saloon powered by a hydrogen fuel cell - to Japanese owners, with the first cars going to government agencies and corporate entities.

In fact, the first car has gone straight to the Japanese Ministry of the Environment. The zero-emission FCX has been leased to owners in America since July 2008, with a total of 200 cars in this first batch split between the US and Japan.

It is driven by an electric motor that runs on power generated by a fuel cell. It means the FCX's only output is heat and water. Its fuel efficiency is three times that of your average petrol engine. All good stuff, and it manages to look pretty cool while its at it too.

Not quite as cool as the FC Sport, mind, Honda's latest fuel cell concept. If this is the future of motoring, it looks pretty decent to our eyes...
