The Honda FCX Clarity, the Hydrogen Fuel Cell powered hybrid is making its debut as the IndyCar Pace Car at the race in St Petersburg late March.
A nice demo of the speed of this car and a lot less polluting than the other cars on the track too. When will they all be electric or fuel cell vehicles?

Honda announced today that a FCX Clarity will serve as the official pace car for the 2011 Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg in late March.
