The Honda FCX Clarity hydrogen fuel cell car will make its UK public debut at the EcoVelocity Show at Battersea Power Station between 8th - 11th September 2011. The car will be on display on the Honda stand as well as taking part in the Parade.

The Honda FCX Clarity is a fully-certified vehicle, and like any other model, is built on a factory line. The hydrogen fuel cell car has a 270 mile range and uses compressed hydrogen to generate electricity to power the car.

Joining the Honda FCX Clarity will be Honda's hybrid cars, the Honda Insight, CR-Z and Jazz. EcoVelocity visitors will be given the opportunity to test drive the cars around a specially-constructed track, with no need to pre-book a slot.

The Honda Insight five door family car is powered by a 1.3 litre petrol engine and is supported by Honda's Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) hybrid technology, enabling fuel consumption of 64.2mpg and 101g/km CO2 emissions.

The Honda CR-Z sporty hybrid is powered by a 1.5 litre engine, alongside Honda's IMA hybrid technology and a six speed manual gearbox and is aimed at fuel-saving drivers who are also looking for a thrilling driving experience. The Honda CR-Z boasts 56.6mpg and 117g/km.

Honda's newest hybrid car, the Honda Jazz Hybrid, offers the same benefits of the standard Jazz, with the added benefit of 104g/km CO2 emissions and 23% improved fuel consumption at 664.2mpg.

Dave Hodgetts, Managing Director of Honda (UK), said: "We're delighted to be supporting EcoVelocity because it gives people the opportunity to experience our cars and see how well they compare to other hybrids on the market. With the Honda CR-Z, Insight and Jazz Hybrid, we have a fantastic range of vehicles to suit every need."

Organised by IMIE and Metro, the EcoVelocity Show provides visitors with the opportunity to learn more about environmentally-friendly vehicles and eco-technology.
