Honda, one of the 2009 Sundance Film Festival’s official sponsors, parked their hydrogen fuel-cell powered FCX Clarity right in the middle of Main Street Park City. The car has been getting a lot of ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ by most passer-bys, which may explain why the attendants looked slightly uncomfortable when I asked how much the car costs and how many are actually on the road.
a) You can’t buy one, only lease (assuming you live in SoCal). The lease is $600 per month for 3 years.
b) There are only a few on the road, like fewer than 5.
