Honda to Provide its New Fuel Cell Vehicle, FCX Clarity for the G8 Hokkaido Toyako Summit

FCX Clarity

Japan - Honda Motor Co., Ltd. will provide its new fuel cell vehicle, FCX Clarity, as well as Civic Hybrid and other advanced technologies for the G8 Hokkaido Toyako Summit to be held during July 7-9, 2008.

Honda decided to participate in support of the Japanese government's effort to showcase the most advanced environmental technologies at this Hokkaido Toyako Summit.

In addition to providing environmentally-responsible vehicles, Honda is to exhibit its advanced environmental technologies including the CIGS(*) thin film solar cells, of which Honda began mass production and sales in 2007, as well as the Honda FC Stack, which is installed in FCX Clarity.

The FCX Clarity is Honda's fuel cell vehicle that runs on compressed hydrogen. The Honda FC Stack onboard converts the compressed hydrogen and oxygen in the air into electricity with only water vapour as exhaust resulting from the process.

Moreover, Honda plans to demonstrate ASIMO at the Environmental Showcase (which will be located within the International Media Center, IMC, for exhibitions and demonstrations of Japan's environmental technologies.)

The humanoid robot made history last month when it conducted the New York Philharmonic Orchestra.
