The first generation Honda FCX looked very similar to the 1998 Honda EV Plus, being a small three-door, four-seat hatchback. It was leased mostly to utility companies testing the hydrogen fuel cell vehicle, but in 2005 Honda leased its first FCX to a non-commercial customer.
The 2008 FCX Clarity is a four-door, four-seat liftback model, with a shape similar to that of the Toyota Prius. This generation is still only available for lease and not for sale, and initially only in Southern California, until fueling infrastructure is expanded to other areas.
Both generations of the FCX Clarity were intended to be trial cars for the hydrogen fuel cell technology in the same way the General Motors EV1 was for electric cars in the 1990s. They weren’t intended for sale and only in very limited numbers to test how the technology would work in daily driving situations and how the users would experience the technology. In December 2016 Honda launched the all-new Clarity FCV, which is intended for retail sales and higher volumes. It’s the second mass-produced hydrogen fuel cell vehicle for sale in California, after the Toyota Mirai.
