FCX Clarity – the first of its kind

New technology needs new ways of thinking. That’s why our engineers had complete freedom when it came to developing our first fuel cell vehicle – from the way it worked to the way it looked. The result is the FCX Clarity.

There’s been nothing like it before. Our innovative V Flow fuel cell platform works in combination with a compact and efficient lithium ion battery. The battery provides an extra boost when needed, and is recharged by braking and deceleration. Which means the FCX Clarity offers the power of a traditional engine, with the cleanliness of an electric car.

Over all this technology is fitted a stylish and futuristic sports saloon bodyshell.

The countdown to launch

The FCX Clarity isn’t a future concept. The first one came off the production line in Japan on 16 June 2008 after 19 years of development and they’re currently in use by a number of selected drivers in Southern California.

The way we all drive is changing. And for the better. Remember where you heard about it first.
