Being a fuel cell-powered vehicle, it is currently impossible to launch the Clarity FCV in India due to the absence of hydrogen filling stations in the country. Even in the US, the Clarity FCV is offered only in California, and that too with as a lease-only offering. In Japan, Honda retails the Clarity FCV with a price tag of 7,660,000 Yen (about Rs 45,15,519).
