Honda to stop production of its Clarity Fuel Cell; confirms to H2 View FCEVs will play a ‘key role’ in zero emissions strategy

Honda will stop production of its Clarity Fuel Cell and Clarity Plugin Hybrid models this August (2021), but says it wants 100% of its vehicle sales to be fuel cell electric or battery electric by 2040.

The vehicle manufacturer confirmed this to H2 View today (June 16), in response to a comment request, and said its commitment to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 still remains in place.

“We are evolving our strategy with a focus on increased application of our two-motor hybrid system to core models in advance of the introduction of our first volume battery electric vehicle models in 2024,” Honda told H2 View.

“Consistent with this strategy, Honda will conclude production of the Clarity Plug-in Hybrid and Clarity Fuel Cell in August 2021. This will ensure we have the Clarity Fuel Cell available for lease through 2022, and Honda will continue to support our Clarity customers in the marketplace.”
