2011 HONDA FCX CLARITY
Honda has joined the Clean Energy Partnership (CEP) in Europe to demonstrate the viability of fuel cell technology and support the essential development of a European hydrogen refueling infrastructure. Honda will support CEP activities by providing two FCX Clarity fuel cell vehicles. Honda firmly believes that hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles are the ultimate solution in reducing CO2 emissions from road transportation.
Honda’s announcement coincides with Air Liquide a major international producer and distributor of cryogenic liquids and gases revealing its commitment to the CEP.
CEP is Europe’s leading fuel cell vehicle and hydrogen infrastructure demonstration project, bringing together automakers (including Toyota, Kia, and Volkswagen) with infrastructure and energy companies and the German government. CEP’s main goal is to prep Europe for hydrogen mobility.
2011 INFINITY M37
Line reports that there will be no entry M25 for the U.S. market, leaving the $47,700 rRM 143, 648) M37 as the base model. While it’s unfortunate that Infiniti won’t offer a more affordable alternative to the nearly $50,000 (RM 150,575) M37.
The 2.5-liter V6 that currently resides under the hood of the G25 only produces 218 horsepower and 217 pound-feet of torque, and since that already feels a bit weak in the G, we can’t imagine that it’d make for a truly engaging M.
It’s not like the 2.5-liter engine is all that more efficient than Infiniti’s outstanding 3.7-liter V6, either. Under the hood of the G sedan, the mill averages 20 miles per gallon in city driving and 29 mpg on the highway. For comparison, the 330-horsepower 3.7-liter V6 averages 19 mpg city and 27 mpg highway.
