Honda leases FCX fuel cell car to Pocahontas

What better way to advertise your future vehicles then to put it in the hands of young and upcoming actress to drive it around Hollywood as a status symbol. Honda announced today that it has leased its second FCX fuel cell car to actress Q’orianka Kilcher, who played Pocahontas in the movie The New World.

The hydrogen-powered Honda FCX is the only fuel cell vehicle certified by the California Air Resources Board and U.S. EPA for everyday commercial use. CARB and EPA have also certified the FCX as a Zero Emission Vehicle and the EPA has confirmed a range of 210 miles.

“The best way to demonstrate the importance of next generation vehicles like the Honda FCX is to put the next generation of drivers behind the wheel,” said John Mendel, senior vice president of American Honda. “Q’orianka Kilcher will be driving around Hollywood in the ultimate environmental status symbol, literally and figuratively driving the change toward a hydrogen future.”
