Hi,

Does anybody know the Cd of the FCX Clarity?

I wonder if either the Prius or the unnamed Honda have well designed belly pans?

I tried and tried to find Cd info on the FXC Clarity, and came up with nada. This was when the press first got to try it though - maybe there's some info floating around out there now.

I know there is a general shape that factory made low .cd cars are going to have... but I have to say, Honda did a vastly better job at keeping the car aesthetically pleasing with the FCX Clarity than Toyota did with the 2nd Gen Prius! The rear-end styling on the Clarity look great! I especially like how they kept it from having that shunted looked by having the sides come together at the end. It's really hard to explain, but it seems to be reminiscent of the aero modded blue metro where the passenger side was removed and tapered down towards the trunk.

I hope that Honda's "Prius Fighter" takes on design cues from the Clarity instead of those from the Insight.
