Honda has launched the second generation of the Clarity FCV in Japan on March 10. The car runs on hydrogen fuel cell technology and will travel 750kmsof distance in one charge in ideal conditions. The Clarity demonstrates Honda’s latest achievements in the field of fuel cell technology for automobiles.

The Clarity resembles the Civic Type R and measures just a tad under five metres. The notchback like sedan has its blacked out roof sloping down all the way to the boot like a coupe. While the front is typical Honda with a thick horizontal chrome slat dominating the front grille, the cuts and creases give it a futuristic look.

The interior is not as busy as the outside of the car, but, there are quite a few buttons to poke around until you figure out what each one does. It gets all creature comforts like climate control, electrically adjustable seats etc along with a display screen for the infotainment system and a multi-function display inside the instrument console.

Honda has managed to fit in all of the fuel cell and related batteries and motor inside the hood allowing enough space for five passengers in the car. The car is driven by the hydrogen fuel cell which powers a 175bhp electric motor. With a tank full of hydrogen charge stored at a high pressure of 70MPa, the Clarity can go as far as 750kms until the next refill. The car will be available in three colours – red, white and black.
