Default Honda Provides Gasoline-Free Vehicles for White House Correspondents' Association Weekend

Zero-emissions, hydrogen-powered FCX Clarity to shuttle guests and VIPs to annual black tie gala



TORRANCE, Calif. - Apr 30 —

In support of the White House Correspondents' Association's (WHCA) effort to reduce the carbon impact surrounding its annual black tie gala, Honda will be providing a gasoline-free fleet of vehicles to shuttle select VIPs and guests to the event. The eco-friendly Honda cars will hit the streets of Washington D.C. from April 30 through May 1, shuttling passengers to the WHCA dinner and to the various events that run throughout the weekend.


The highlight of the fleet will be the use of a zero emissions, hydrogen powered FCX Clarity fuel cell electric vehicle. The sleek and modern sedan is propelled by an electric motor that runs on electricity generated in an on-board hydrogen fuel cell. The FCX Clarity's only emission is water, and its fuel efficiency is three times that of a modern gasoline-powered automobile and two times that of a gasoline-powered hybrid vehicle.


Along with the FCX Clarity, several compressed natural gas -powered Civic GXs will be transporting guests around Washington D.C. The Honda Civic GX is the cleanest internal combustion vehicle ever certified by the EPA and was named the "Greenest Vehicle" by the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE).


To kick off the Correspondents' Weekend, the gasoline-free fleet will transport select invitees to the Honda, The Washington Post and Funnyordie.com sponsored First Amendment Party in Georgetown. The second annual event takes place on April 30th and benefits the Impact Arts + Film Fund, a Washington D.C.-based arts organization.
