Over-Sized Keys and Photo-Op for Honda Hydrogen Car
Last month, we wrote about the Honda FCX Clarity hydrogen fuel cell car, and we were a bit ambivalent about it. Sure it's a technological marvel, but we're a lot less sure that a hydrogen infrastructure will be viable anytime soon, and since time is of the essence, fuel cells are a bit of a red herring. Still, it's still worth noting that the first FCX Clarity models have been delivered to their new owners (or rather, leasers): film producer Ron Yerxa and Annette Ballester. Next on the list are Jamie Lee Curtis and her husband Christopher Guest, actress Laura Harris, and businessmen Jon Spallino and Jim Salomon.
You Want a Honda FCX?
As we previously wrote: "Honda is not selling the FCX Clarity yet, only leasing it to a select few in California (and Japan next Autumn). The three year contract will be $600/month, including maintenance and insurance, and only those living close enough to the few hydrogen refueling stations in Torrance, Santa Monica, and Irvine can qualify." And of course, if you aren't a movie star, it will probably be very hard to even be considered. Still, good luck!
