Honda FCX is a go

Honda's FCX sedan is coming this summer, and will be called the FCX Clarity. The hydrogen fuel cell-powered vehicle will be available to qualified customers in southern California at a three-year lease price of $600 per month. The lease payment includes all scheduled maintenance, as well as collision insurance.

I wasn't jazzed about the styling of the show car. I think the adjustments for the street vehicle are nearly universally positive, though I'm still not sure about that bright fascia bit on the front.

Many more photographs and details here. Do go check it out; it's nifty.

Honda is the least whimsical large car company out there. That they are jumping into hydrogen so forcefully is a strong indicator of where we're headed in general.
