Honda’s Clarity Reviews

The Honda Clarity line is now complete. After introducing the lease-only pure EV back in July, the Plug-In Hybrid and Fuel Cell models are here; I got to test-drive both at a recent event and came away impressed. Besides badges and refueling ports, the Clarity vehicles look identical.

Powered by either electricity, gasoline, or hydrogen, the five-seat Clarity sedan brings you the future today. The plug-in hybrid model will see showrooms nationwide and boasts a claimed 47 miles of range before the 1.5-liter gasoline engine kicks in.Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are included, along with the Honda Sensing suite of safety/driver-assistance tech.

While the differences behind the wheel are noticeable, the platform itself and the interior mostly make for an enjoyable driving experience regardless of your drivetrain preference. The Fuel Cell version of the car handled nicely during my short time with it, but the limited refueling infrastructure means it’s still an early adopter car, particularly for those lucky enough to live near fueling stations.

It’s the Plug-In Hybrid that will appeal to most customers. As with the EV before it, Honda has created a luxury experience in a midclass four-door sedan. With a range of 340 miles, the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid is ready for road trips. For drives around town and commutes, the battery achieves a range of 47 miles (via a 17kWh battery pack), which is more than enough to run errands and get you to work. Like every Clarity variant, you’ll be comfortable sitting anywhere in the cab no matter where you’re going. The seats are plush and enveloping, so much so that and even my 6-foot 3-inch frame found ample room in the backseat.

About Mohit Chhikara

I am a person who is positive about every aspect of life. There are many things I like to do, to see, and to experience. I like to read, I like to write; I like to think, I like to dream; I like to talk, I like to listen. I like to see the sunrise in the morning, I like to see the moonlight at night; I like to feel the music flowing on my face, I like to smell the wind coming from the ocean. I like to look at the clouds in the sky with a blank mind, I like to do thought experiment when I cannot sleep in the middle of the night. I like flowers in spring, rain in summer, leaves in autumn, and snow in winter. I like to sleep early, I like to get up late; I like to be alone, I like to be surrounded by people. I like country’s peace, I like metropolis’ noise; I like the beautiful west lake in Hangzhou, I like the flat cornfield in Champaign. I like delicious food and comfortable shoes; I like good books and romantic movies. I like the land and the nature, I like people. And, I like to laugh.
