It never ceases to amaze us how many technological innovations were made month after month over the past years. Take, for instance, the auto industry. Electric vehicles are now commonplace and multiple automakers are launching a form of fuel that’s even more impressive: hydrogen.
If you didn’t keep up with news from Los Angeles last month, you might have missed some big news. Not to be left behind by Hyundai and Toyota, Honda has its own hydrogen car, which it showcased at the auto show: the Clarity Fuel Cell Vehicle.
Although a zero-emissions sedan that runs on hydrogen gas sounds like science fiction,
Honda plans to launch the vehicle in the real world (specifically California) in 2016. The details revealed by the automaker suggest the car will have a 300-mile range, fuel in three minutes, and can even power your house for you!
Because of a still-developing infrastructure, the Clarity FCV will be limited to the West Coast for the time being. However, its influence will stretch further into the United States, being the basis for an upcoming electric hybrid to be sold in all 50 states.
