Hydrogen Tank System

What’s the Benefit?
The Clarity Fuel Cell’s tank system is compact enough to allow a spacious cabin for five occupants while still holding enough fuel for a long, satisfying range.

The Feature:
The Clarity uses a 2-tank system to hold just over 5 kg of hydrogen at high pressure for a long driving range.

  • The larger main tank is placed behind the rear seats, within the highly rigid rear subframe.
  • The second, smaller tank is placed beneath the rear seats.
  • Both tanks conform to numerous U.S. and global standards for strength and performance.
  • Sensors in the vehicle are designed to detect a hydrogen leak and shut off the system automatically if a leak is detected.
  • The tank system is designed to accommodate compressed hydrogen at up to 10,000 psi of pressure.
