Honda Expands Hydrogen Refueling Network in South Carolina
The station is also outfitted with multiple fuel dispensers, which allow for the simultaneous refueling of four vehicles in less than five minutes.
"This new Torrance hydrogen station will give FCX Clarity customers another option for quick, convenient fueling," stated Elmer Hardy, senior manager, Alternative Fuel Vehicle Sales & Marketing at American Honda Motor Co., Inc.
The Honda FCX Clarity is powered by an an electric motor that runs on juice generated in an on-board fuel cell. The vehicle’s fuel efficiency is three times that of a comparably sized modern gasoline-powered automobile, and two times that of a gasoline-powered hybrid vehicle. The car has a 240-mile EPA-certified driving range and a 5 minute refueling time.
“In an opening ceremony, Honda FCX Clarity customer Jon Spallino became the first retail fuel-cell electric vehicle customer to fill at the station. With this new station operational, FCX Clarity customers will have access to seven hydrogen refueling stations across Southern California. The FCX Clarity is available on a limited retail basis in Southern California with more than two dozen currently on the road and in the hands of individual customers,” a company statement reads,
