An update to my thread on the Clarity FCV: http://www.teslamotorsclub.com/showthread.php/56507-Honda-Clarity-FCEV-revealed%21/page3 Honda's electrification plans are now more or less official: http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/honda-clarity-fuel-cell-sedan-makes-north-american-debut-at-2015-los-angeles-auto-show-300181241.html This is consistent with the AC-X concept from 2011. Based on my knowledge of Honda, I would expect an Accord-sized sedan or liftback with 40-50 miles of EV range, and a 2.0L direct-injection DOHC i-VTEC engine as the long range backup. This pretty much ends the controversy over whether Honda would go completely BEV or not. The answer is no, with 99.9% probability in my estimation. Honda will maintain the current strategy of in the near term using PHEVs for long range vehicles, BEVs for city cars, and FCEVs as their ultimate solution for moving away from petroleum fuels. Given the engineering lead time between announcements and products, I do not believe that Honda intends to have a long-range BEV for sale in the 2018 time frame.
