By housing the fuel cell stack under the hood to enable a 5-seater packaging, the Clarity Fuel Cell realizes comfort worthy of a sedan. A roomy cabin and exhilarating drive, coupled with a quiet drive only a Fuel Cell Vehicle (FCV) without an engine can achieve, enhance the Clarity Fuel Cell’s appeal as a high-grade sedan.
Cruising range has also been improved, to create a more convenient car. By improving fuel cell powertrain efficiency and increasing the hydrogen fuel storage capacity, the Clarity Fuel Cell has a cruising range of approximately 750km on a full tank of hydrogen (JC08 mode).
The Clarity Fuel Cell’s hydrogen storage tank can be filled in around 3 minutes, similar to filling a gasoline vehicle’s fuel tank.
Safety is also of paramount importance. The Clarity Fuel Cell’s fuel cell stack is 4 times more impact resistant that previous models, by supporting the cells with a fastening bar. Even if the vehicle is involved in a collision, the fuel cell stack is designed to prevent hydrogen leakage. The straight frame structure, worthy of an FCV, protects the battery and hydrogen tanks more effectively.
By connecting the Clarity Fuel Cell to the Power Exporter 9000, the FCV’s direct current (DC) electricity generated can be converted to alternating current (AC100V/200V) for household appliance use. The Power Exporter 9000 is ideal for outdoor use, and as an emergency power source in case of disaster. The Power Exporter 9000, and the “Power Manager” which can supply households and public facilities with electricity, realize a lifestyle “Get connected” with hydrogen.
