Honda announced plans to begin sales of its hydrogen fuel cell Clarity Fuel Cell in the U.S. before the end of 2016.
The latest FCV will not be available nationwide or even California-wide as the Japanese manufacturer “expects limited volumes in the early stages of production“. Well, that and there is little-to-no hydrogen refueling stations in the state, as Toyota recently found out by having to halt sales at some of their dealerships while waiting on more to be constructed.
Deliveries will begin at certified fuel cell vehicle dealers in Los Angeles and Orange counties, as well as in the San Francisco Bay Area and Sacramento.
Honda didn’t set prices yet, but expects an MSRP of around $60,000 and a targeted monthly lease under $500.
It seems that there will be no option to buy these cars, at least not in 2016:
“The company will start by leasing vehicles and expects to move to retail sales with increased volumes and market coverage coincident with increasing vehicle supplies and the growing hydrogen refueling station network.”
