American Honda Motor Co., Inc., delivered its second FCX Clarity to Jamie Lee Curtis on July 31. Curtis and husband Christopher Guest are the second of approximately 200 customers who will begin leasing the vehicle in the United States and Japan over the next three years.

"I really wasn't expecting it to be so luxurious," says Curtis. "It's luxurious, luxurious, luxurious! I love the interior layout, design and access to controls. It is user-friendly and very modern."

Ron Yerxa and Annette Ballester, Santa Monica, Calif., residents, took delivery of the first FCX Clarity on July 25.

The FCX Clarity is a next-generation, hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicle. Significant advances over Honda's previous generation FCX, the company says, include a 25 percent increase in combined fuel economy to 74 mpg GGE (miles per gasoline gallon equivalent) and a greater than 30 percent increase in driving range up to 280 miles. Propelled by an electric motor that runs on electricity generated in the fuel cell, the vehicle's only by-products are heat and water, and its fuel efficiency is three times that of a modern gasoline-powered automobile.
