Features for Efficiency
When it comes to efficiency, the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid is designed to impress. It comes with an innovative powertrain consisting of a 1.5L i-VTEC® engine and two electric motors. Together, they help the vehicle achieve a combined gas-electric range of 340 miles.* To boost efficiency even further, the hybrid offers all-electric operation which allows you to experience an outstanding all-electric EPA-estimated 110 MPGe combined.*
The Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid is also engineered to keep that advanced lithium-ion battery pack under the hood powered during your travels. When cruising down the highway, the vehicle uses the engine and one of the motors to recharge the battery pack. You can even send a bit of power to the pack with the regenerative braking feature. Every time you take your foot off the gas and step on the brakes, the system helps charge the battery.
But what if you need more juice to get the battery up to full power? Honda has thought of that, too. All you have to do is plug in the vehicle to a 120V outlet, and it should be fully charged in about 12 hours. Need to hit the road sooner? Plug it into a 240V charger, and the battery will be completely charged in about two hours.
Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid Design
Of course, its performance doesn’t just stem from the features under the hood. The 2019 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid also includes an exterior strategically designed to boost efficiency. Thanks to its naturally-inspired shape, airflow is streamlined on all sides of the car creating lower resistance and a smoother and quieter drive.
Inside, you’ll find a driver-centric cabin crafted to add a bit more fun and comfort to your commutes to and from the office. Sit back and enjoy up to 101.5 cubic feet of volume in the seating area as well as 42.2 inches of front-row legroom and 36.2 inches of rear-seat legroom. If you need to bring a few people with you on your next road trip, the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid has seating for up to five passengers.
You’ll also find a slew of comfort features when you’re behind the wheel, including heated seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, and power-adjustable front seats.
