Honda debuts FCX Clarity model

Japanese automobile manufacturer Honda has lifted the lid on its latest vehicle.

The FCX Clarity fuel cell vehicle was revealed by the firm at the Los Angeles International Motor Show, with the company planning a tentative limited release for summer 2008.

Honda commented that the vehicle has been named the Clarity as its fuel cell power source is "clear solution to the challenges of the future".

And with energy storage provided by a lithium ion battery and a "powerful" Honda V Flow fuel cell stack, it may be difficult for drivers to argue otherwise.

"The FCX Clarity marks the significant progress Honda continues to make in advancing the real-world performance and appeal of the hydrogen-powered fuel cell car," said the automaker.

Honda was originally founded in Tokyo in 1948 and is a manufacturer of cars, trucks and motorcycles.

Last year, the firm generated $93 billion (£41.5 billion) in revenue.
