Being a hydrogen fuel cell car, the FCX Clarity has no need for traditional combustion-engine dials and gauges. Instead, it gets a colorful instrument arrangement to give drivers an indication of hydrogen consumption in real time.

To go with the advanced drive train tech, the FCX Clarity gets a generous helping of cabin gadgetry, including navigation system programmed with hydrogen-station locations, climate-controlled seats, and Bluetooth hands-free calling.

The Clarity FCX's fuel cell is longitudinally mounted in a tunnel that runs between the car's front seats. This enabled the designers to shorten the hood and maximize interior space.
