2019 Honda Clarity Fuel Cell arriving at select California dealers

(April 11, 2019) Arriving at select dealerships in California beginning April 16, the 2019 Honda Clarity Fuel Cell received an emissions-free 360-mile driving range rating and offers quick refueling at a competitive lease price of $379 per month. The Clarity's spacious and sophisticated interior offers ample room for five, and every Clarity Fuel Cell comes standard with advanced technology, such as the Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto™ smartphone integration.

"The Clarity Fuel Cell is a compelling choice for customers who want to be on the leading edge of our low-carbon future in a practical vehicle, with premium features and at no compromise to range or refueling times," said Steven Center, vice president of auto sales at American Honda Motor Co., Inc.

The 2019 Clarity Fuel Cell has a 360 mile EPA driving range rating, making it one of the highest rated zero-emission light-duty vehicles in America, including fuel cell and battery electric vehicles.

In addition, the Clarity Fuel Cell received a 68 MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent) EPA combined fuel economy rating1, the highest rating for any light-duty fuel cell vehicle sold in America, and can be refueled in approximately three to five minutes using 70 MPa refueling stations.

Retail leasing of the Clarity Fuel Cell is available through a network of 12 approved Honda dealerships in select California markets, including six dealerships in Southern California (Los Angeles and Orange County areas), five in the San Francisco Bay Area, and one in the Sacramento area.

The Clarity Fuel Cell offers a competitive lease price of $379 per month for 36 months with $2,878 due at signing with California customers eligible for a $5,000 rebate. The lease terms include a mileage allowance of 20,000 miles per year, up to $15,000 of hydrogen fuel, up to 21 days of access to a luxury vehicle from Avis while in California, 24/7 roadside assistance, and eligibility for California's Clean Air Vehicle Stickers to allow single-occupant HOV access.

Honda has invested more than $14 million in California's hydrogen refueling network. With nearly 40 retail hydrogen stations across the state, it's now more convenient than ever before to quickly refuel the Clarity Fuel Cell. Honda intends for electrified vehicles to comprise two-thirds of its global automobile sales by 2030.

In North America, the Honda Electrification Initiative will see Honda's electrified powertrain technologies applied to an expanding portfolio of cars and light trucks in the years ahead. Honda's electrified vehicle lineup today includes the Clarity series, along with the Accord Hybrid and Insight.
