Honda to Debut Electric, Plug-in Hybrid Models in Clarity Series


Adding battery-electric and plug-in hybrid electric options to its Clarity nameplate, Honda says it will officially debut the all-new Honda Clarity Plug-in Hybrid and Honda Clarity Electric at the 2017 New York International Auto Show.

As reported, the two electrified Honda vehicles will make Clarity the first vehicle series to offer customers an expanded array of electrified vehicle choices with fuel cell, battery-electric and plug-in hybrid powertrains.

According to the automaker, the vehicles will help Honda achieve its goal of two-thirds of its sales from electrified vehicles by 2030.

The Clarity Electric will arrive as a midsize, five-passenger battery-electric vehicle, while the Clarity Plug-in Hybrid will launch in 50 states as the volume leader in the series, combining an all-electric driving range rating in excess of 40 miles with a hyper-efficient, gasoline-hybrid extended range mode.
