Top Gear was all green this past weekend. Following Clarkson’s review of the Tesla Roadster, James May has gotten his hands on the Honda FCX Clarity – a car that Honda says it may mass produce within 10 years. For now the Honda FCX Clarity is available for leasing in SoCal for $600 a month.
The Honda FCX Clarity is powered by an advanced new lithium-ion battery pack that is 40 percent lighter and 50 percent smaller than the modern hybrid powertrains. The FCX Clarity has a 5,000-psi hydrogen storage tank. It produces a total of 134-hp and gets a combined fuel-economy of 74 mpg according to EPA mileage estimates. The car is capable of going 280 miles on one fill.
Our main man Jay Leno also makes a guest appearance during this segment of Top Gear.
