Honda delivered a zero-emissions, hydrogen-powered Honda FCX Clarity fuel cell electric vehicle to its latest customer, 2010 Canadian Olympic hockey team captain Scott Niedermayer.

Also a team captain for the Anaheim Ducks National Hockey League team, Niedermayer is a leader both on and off the ice, promoting an environmentally responsible lifestyle and protection of natural resources.

“My love for nature and the outdoors developed while growing up in Canada and I hope the generations after me get to experience nature as I have,” said Scott Niedermayer. “Everyday actions, like driving the zero-emissions Honda FCX Clarity, will help to make this dream a reality.”

Honda’s FCX Clarity produces electricity onboard from hydrogen via Honda’s innovative V Flow fuel cell stack with water vapor as its only emission.

Significant advances include exhilarating performance, futuristic sedan packaging and a driving range of up to 400 kilometres. FCX Clarity’s fuel efficiency is three times that of a comparable, modern gasoline-powered automobile.

“Honda’s FCX Clarity demonstrates our global commitment to developing zero-emissions vehicles,” said Jerry Chenkin, executive vice president of Honda Canada Inc., “and having drivers such as Scott Niedermayer behind the wheel of a Honda FCX Clarity is a great way to reach out to a new audience, which we hope will inspire others to consider more environmentally responsible products and lifestyle.”

Niedermayer and his wife, Lisa, reside in Orange County, California, with their four sons. The family enjoys the outdoors together by camping and mountain biking. Their love of nature has inspired the family to seek a greener lifestyle that includes changes such as adding insulation around the family home and installing a radiant barrier on the roof to conserve energy.

Niedermayer, a native of Cranbrook, B.C., already carpools to games with his fellow teammates and promotes a recycling program around his team’s dressing room.
