Honda To Display First US-Spec Clarity FCV In NY

Visitors to the New York Auto Show, which will kick off on Wednesday for the Press and two days later for the public, will get to see Honda’s fuel cell car.

Displayed in its final US specification, the Clarity FCV will be available in one of the three colors, namely signature red, black or white.

It also comes with a multimedia system that features Display audio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, app-based navigation, streaming audio, voice-controlled search capabilities and access to Google- or Apple-approved smartphone apps.

The manufacturer has fitted the Honda Sensing onto the FCV, as part of the active safety gizmos, which uses advanced sensor tech to detect potential collision or lane departure, initiating emergency steering and braking to prevent mitigation or vehicle collision. Technologies found here include Collision Mitigation Braking System with emergency braking, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, Road Departure Mitigation and Adaptive Cruise Control.

Equipped with a fuel stack 33 percent more compact than its predecessor, with a 60 percent increase in power density, the Clarity FCV will go on sale in select California dealers by the end of this year at at around $60,000, with a targeted monthly lease of less than $500.

Based on the same platform as the Clarity, the 2017 Honda Accord Plug-in Hybrid will go be launched this spring, at a yet undisclosed price tag.
