The Clarity is the first step toward Honda's plan of electrifying two-thirds of its global fleet by 2030. The company has previously announced plans to introduce a dedicated new hybrid vehicle to the United States market in 2018. Like their Fuel Cell cousins, the Electric and Hybrid models fits five people into a surprisingly premium cabin. When the battery drains, a 1.5-liter Atkinson cycle four-cylinder gas engine kicks in to generate electricity and keep the vehicle motoring for an additional 288 miles (463 km), for a total estimated range of 330 miles (531 km).
Hydrogen fuel cell cars could one day challenge electric cars in the race for pollution-free roads but only if more stations are built to fuel them. A 25.5-kWh lithium-ion battery pack is mounted under the floor and behind the rear seatbacks to preserve interior room, and trunk space benefits from not having to accommodate the Clarity Fuel Cell's thick-walled carbon-fiber hydrogen tank. Honda estimates it will take three hours to fully charge at 240 volts or, if connected to a DC fast charger, only 30 minutes to charge up to 80 percent.
The electric Clarity sedan will have another, challenge, though. The 2017 Honda Clarity Electric is powered by a 161-horsepower (120 kW) electric motor sending 221 pound-feet of torque to the front wheels. Honda expects this PHEV to earn an overall EPA fuel economy rating of 105 mpg-equivalent.
The vehicle provides three distinct driving modes including Econ, Sport, and Normal. Lease includes Roadside Assistance, up to $15,000 of hydrogen fuel, and up to 21 days Avis luxury rental vehicle. The Clarity Electric will launch later this year, starting with an attractive lease program in California and Oregon.
Much like the Accord Hybrid, the Clarity's gasoline engine will primarily operate as an efficient range extending generator, supplying power to the electric motor without a direct connection to the wheels.

Although electric auto manufacturers have long claimed that 95 per cent of vehicle trips are under 50 miles, they have also begrudgingly acknowledged that consumers' fear of running out of charge is one of the main barriers to purchasing an electric auto. The Clarity Fuel Cell is available for the competitive introductory lease price of $369 a month for 36 months with $2,868 due at signing The lease terms include an attractive mileage allowance of 20,000 miles per year, up to $15,000 of hydrogen fuel, up to 21 days of an Avis Luxury Rental in California, 24/7 roadside assistance, and eligibility for California "White Sticker" single occupant HOV access.
