Looks like it's for real, HMC and AHM are shutting down production of the current Clarity FCEV with its 3rd generation fuel cell.

Looks like they are moving onto the 4th generation fuel cell -due out in 2020?- as a cooperation with GM.

Our Clarity is a MY17 on a three year lease. Hopefully we'll be able to pick up a MY20 to replace it, otherwise we might have a gap in there. We just might have to buy that CTR after all....

True, but it correlates with anecdotal info I picked up in the FB Clarity FCEV group and it also slots very well into the schedule.

HMC/AHM have delayed building FCEVs before and the comment I got was that someone is going to get one of the last cars made, with no info when/if more will be available.
