There are few things that get the sales team at Frank Leta Honda more excited than hearing that the automaker they have supported for years is advancing their already impressive efforts in green auto technology. So it is with great pride that they announce Honda's team-up with General Motors, one of the select other automakers currently making advances in fuel cell technology.

The primary goal of the automakers is to develop a fuel cell system that could potentially become universal, thus reducing their cost and increasing the increased presence of fuel stations that support the quick refueling of these vehicles. One of the biggest advantages of these vehicles is their ability to get drivers from place to place with little to no effective environmental impact.

As it stands, if drivers want to be green, their best bet is an electric vehicle – like Honda's Fit EV – though many opt for one of the many hybrid models on the market today. In fact, Honda has a history of providing alternative fuel options to their drivers, like

  •     CR-Z hybrid sports car
  •     Civic Hybrid and Natural Gas
  •     Accord Plug-in Hybrid and upcoming standard Accord Hybrid

This is in addition to the Fit EV and the very limited release of Honda's fuel cell vehicle, the FCX Clarity. By partnering with GM to improve technology advancement, Honda predicts a full release of the FCX Clarity in 2015 for both Japan and the United States.

If any of these vehicles sound appealing, they might fall under Honda's current Summer Clearance Event, which offers incredible lease rates and financing as low as 0.9% APR to qualified drivers.
