Actress Jamie Lee Curtis and her husband, director Christopher Guest, have finally received delivery of their new Honda FCX Clarity hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle. The celebrity couple is the second pair to take ownership of the new vehicle after film producer Ron Yerxa and Annette Ballester. Looks like Honda is taking a page out of Toyota’s book in getting this car into Hollywood hands first. 

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

While the Clarity is the first publicly available hydrogen-powered vehicle to hit the market, don’t go rushing off to buy one at your local dealership. The cars are only being leased from three dealerships in Southern California — and even then are in limited quantities and cost above $600/month. 

Still, it’s great to see a hydrogen vehicle actually available to anyone with the cash to afford it — one of the reasons why the Clarity landed on our recent list of Top 5 Green Cars Hollywood Will Be Driving Tomorrow

Now if the world can just figure out a less energy-intensive way to produce the hydrogen for these vehicles, we’ll be psyched. If it worked for Jack 30 years ago, (hydrogen produced by solar energy), it can work today.

    We at Independent Energy Research are developing an independent portable solar hydrogen refueling station, and all the modules which will make a solar hydrogen, pollution and carbon emissions free lifestyle possible. Kudos to Honda and for their fantastic Clarity and to Jamie Lee, one of my favorite movie actresses, for her efforts to publecise it. I saw the Clarity at the National Hydrogen Association meeting in Sacramento in the spring and seriously want one. I will refuel mine at home and do not have to wait for the infrastructure to be developed. Solar hydrogen is the future- John Gotthold IER CTO
