The F-Cell has a range of about 250 miles with a 3 minute refill time. If that sounds like your Honda Fit, remember that the F-Cell's only emission is water vapor.

The F-Cell's clean emissions come from its fuel of choice, hydrogen. A fuel cell generates electricity that is either used to directly power the electric motor or stored in a lithium ion battery pack for later use. Its maximum output is about 100 kW or 136 horsepower.
