Packed with all kinds of futuristic amenities, it’s pretty clear that Honda has decided to take a huge leap into the next big thing for vehicles with the 2017 Honda Clarity Fuel cell and did not disappoint. You may be wondering how the Clarity Fuel Cell is able to do what it does—well, wonder no more. Essentially, the fuel cell powers the electric drive motor by converting hydrogen into electricity, and that’s all it takes to power this beautiful beast. Another great thing about the powertrain setup is that the cell stack fits neatly under the hood so that the interior is more spacious than ever, providing seating for five passengers instead of four like some competitors.
Refueling the vehicle is a simple task as well and only requires five minutes at a fueling station before drivers are ready to head back onto the road and experience a range of up to 366 miles.2 Performance continues to shine, as the exterior of the vehicle is extremely aerodynamic thanks to its streamlined shape, which helps to provide maximum efficiency. So, while it is good to look at, it’s functional, too. Right along with all of these great performance and exterior features are other interior extras like 11.9 cubic feet of rear cargo space, touch-sensitive steering wheel–mounted controls, and one-touch electronic gear selector with Sport Mode.
The compact, highly efficient fuel cell stack fits entirely under the hood, resulting in a spacious, 5-person interior where others in its class can only fit 4.
Fast and convenient, refueling the Clarity Fuel Cell takes approximately 3 to 5 minutes. With such a fast fill up and the Clarity’s 366-mile range rating,* you’ll have more time on the road.
Fueling your Clarity Fuel Cell is as quick and simple as fueling a traditional gasoline-powered car, from on-screen prompts to a familiar dispenser shape and size.
The California Fuel Cell Partnership map features all active and planned hydrogen fuel stations near you, so you never need to worry about where you’ll fuel up.
Remotely check for fuel level, driving range, and the location of nearby hydrogen-refueling stations with the HondaLink app.
The hydrogen fuel tanks are constructed of resilient and lightweight carbon fiber, and are mounted securely within the car’s frame to help protect them in case of impact.

The Clarity Fuel Cell is designed around the driver, from the one-touch electronic gear selector to the performance-boosting Sport Mode.
An engineering breakthrough allowed Honda to fit the entire powertrain under the hood, allowing for spacious, class-leading 5-passenger seating.
The thoughtful interior features Plasmacluster® Ion Technology to help break down germs, destroy odors and improve overall air quality at a molecular level.
Premium soft-touch materials like eco-conscious leather coupled with finely-detailed stitching throughout the cabin exemplify top-quality craftsmanship.
