It was said to be a hydrogen/electric car that will retail for 3 times the amount of a regular honda. great idea but the cost will need to come down.

Well the first thing I thought about as well was "how much is it gonna cost" I did a little research and from what I have read it shows them to be listed under 25K.

Now who knows what will happen when they actually release them....


here is a link to one of the articles I found

Glenn Beck was just talking about this. Says Honda is spending $200 million to build 200 cars. Doesn't sound reasonable. They are only going to be available for lease in California. Damn Congress should get the hell out of the way so we can get our own oil.

Toyota just came out with a new fuel cell that they will include in future cars.

GM on the other hand just decided to stop producing gas guzzling SUV's.

I understand the Honda leases for $600 a month and that included maintenance & insurance.

Diesel Accord comes out sometime in 09. Reports are around 52 MPG (larger than the Jetta with BETTER MPG #'s!)

We'll literally be on a list at the dealership. :)

I don't see how that could include insurance since everyone's driving record is different, unless Honda's getting in the insurance business. I see it's printed but its hard to believe they'll provide collision insurance.... probably because no one else will write a policy on the thing since the fuel cell might be worth $50k itself.

This is crazy. Where are you supposed to fill it up? Our current infrastructure is designed for fossil fuels. If everyone would stop going in different directions maybe we could get some real progress. How about everyone heading in the same direction of hybrids with gas/electric or diesel/electric. That alone would help if they could get them out on the market for a reasonable price. Yesterday it was SUV's Now all the sudden it's hydrogen? What about good old fashion economical cars that can utilize our current infrastructure. Both ends have to meet in the middle.

Hydrogen is going way up !

It's reported that this past Sunday a couple of fat guys p'd in the ocean on the southern California coast resulting in much higher Hydrogen fuel costs than previously expected.

why diesel cost more than freakin gas
Yeah, but do the math.

Diesel is what, 22% higher than 87 octane now?

Modern diesel cars will get almost 100% better miles per gallon.

Not to mention they run 250K plus and have wicked re-sale values compared to most disposable gassers.

Here's the web site. Don't see anything about the insurance on this one but earlier in the week I read it on a news release.
