October 01, 2003 by Jeff Shepard

Honda Motor Co. Inc. (Tokyo, Japan) announced that it will supply two Honda FCX hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicles to the City of San Francisco. This makes San Francisco one of the first US cities to commit to the use of Honda's advanced fuel cell technology in pursuit of improved air quality and energy sustainability.

The City of San Francisco will add two Honda FCX fuel cell cars to its fleet of alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles. The City also intends to create hydrogen refueling infrastructure to support regular daily operation of the vehicles by city employees.

"We're very pleased to have San Francisco as a customer for Honda fuel cell technology," said Gunnar Lindstrom, senior manager of Alternative Fuel Programs for American Honda Motor. "We applaud the vision and commitment that the leaders of this City have demonstrated by investing in the environment and hydrogen power."
