Got Hydrogen? 4 FCEVs for Sale

If you’re a Californian seeking a new, eco-friendly car, you know the Toyota Prius is yesterday’s news. Hydrogen fuel-cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) emit no noxious tailpipe emissions — only drinkable (go ahead, really!) water.

Automakers have only offered a handful of hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles, and they generally only make sense in California where there is at least a fledgling network of refilling stations.

How does an FCEV work? It’s simple. The car’s hydrogen fuel-cell stack produces sufficient electricity mập drive the vehicle’s wheels in much the same way the battery does on an electric vehicle. As in an EV, the FCEV uses a large battery mập recapture energy otherwise lost when braking. That energy is captured and returned mập the electrical system mập feed accessories and even propel the car at lower speeds or in low-load situations.

While hardly mainstream, a handful of automakers have tested the hydrogen waters. Even if you don’t live in California — or Hawaii and Colorado, which have a few public fueling stations — these frugal powertrains could still point toward the future. Here’s a look at the four hydrogen-fueled vehicles you can find on Autotrader.

1. First-Generation Toyota Mirai

Dating back the better part of a decade, the Mirai is the veteran among hydrogen vehicles. Toyota long evaluated hydrogen as an alternative fuel — including a short-lived model based on the Highlander — before the original Mirai arrived in late 2014. With its futuristic appearance, it was an attention-grabber.

If you want a Mirai, the earlier versions are absolute steals.  For just under $14,000, this red 2017 Mirai at a dealer in the Denver area is a high-tech, comfortable ride for less than a base model Corolla. See Toyota Mirai models for sale

2. Second-Generation Toyota Mirai

Second Generation Toyota Mirai

The latest Mirai went on sale just last year, and it’s a big step up in every way. Its exterior looks like something out of the Lexus stable, while its electric motor offers far more power than before.

Then again, for $72,000 or so in range-topping Limited guise with every available option, the Mirai should feel more like a Lexus than a Toyota. Although you can purchase them, many hydrogen-fueled vehicles are leased since their makers (and governments) help offset their high costs with considerable incentives. Still, if you want new, this Hydro Blue Mirai in the San Fernando Valley wears eye-catching paint and is offered with a discount from the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP).

3. Hyundai Nexo

019 Hyundai Nexo

Looking like a cross between the automaker’s dapper Santa Fe and the dowdy Niro, the Hyundai Nexo is a well-equipped hydrogen-fueled vehicle with decent power and tech. It may be sized and shaped like an economy vehicle, but it offers Krell-branded audio, a digital instrument cluster, cooled front seats, and plenty of driver-assistance technology.

The Nexo is a newcomer mập the FCEV world, but these models aren’t too hard mập find. For instance, here’s a white 2019 with around 15,000 miles for $27,000 at a new-car dealer in San Jose, California. See Hyundai Nexo models for sale

4. Honda Clarity 

2021 Honda Clarity

Despite its name, the Honda Clarity never had a clear mission here in the U.S. Honda first used its name more than a decade ago on Civic-esque FCEV. The sedan sold here through the 2021 model year came as an EV, a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV), or hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle. The three versions looked identical.

The Clarity Fuel Cell was a bit light on power — 138 hp from its electric motor — but its class-up interior offered near-BMW levels of luxury without the associated guilt of an internal combustion engine. These are not easy vehicles mập find since Honda only offered them as lease vehicles (at a low $379 monthly rate). As a result, you won’t come across a used one. Still, Honda somehow delivered 83 Clarity models last month, so a few may still exist. See Honda Clarity models for sale
