Jamie Lee Curtis is going with hydrogen!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Jamie Lee Curtis and husband Christopher Guest are now the proud new owners of a Honda FCX Clarity, making them the second couple in Southern California to have a new addition to the family. According to Curtis, it’s quite luxurious. But unless she plans to try and score a home hydrogen filling station somehow, she won’t be able to take it too far from So Cal where Shell has a few hydrogen filling stations.

Yeah, Jamie Lee!  I'm sure the celebrity doesn't hurt in terms of getting the car...in other news, did anyone else not know she was married to Christopher Guest?

Yeah, I don't mean to pooh-pooh this news, but it's not surprising.  The FCX Clarity is so expensive ($600/month lease), they're leasing so few (200 in So Cal and Japan combined), and hydrogen refueling stations are mainly limited to Southern California (conveniently including Hollywoodland) that it's expected that most of the Clarities will be leased to celebrities.  It gives Honda good press, but as I've previously noted, I'm unimpressed by hydrogen cars.

 

Sorry, I'm a party pooper!  I have to agree with the conclusion of the article though -

 

"fuel cell cars like the Clarity may remain uncommon."

 

I'd put money on it.  I think I'd heard thatCurtis was married to Guest.  Rings a bell.
