The Ed Voyles Honda inventory now includes the 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid. This all-new five passenger sedan with an electrified powertrain is sophisticated, spacious and comprehensively equipped.
The Clarity Plug-In Hybrid offers zero-emissions all-electric driving for most daily driving situations with a 47-mile all-electric EPA range rating.* For longer distances, the hybrid powertrain allows for a a 340-mile combined gas-electric EPA range rating.* The Clarity Plug-In Hybrid is powered by Honda’s two-motor hybrid technology and utilizes an ultra-efficient 1.5-liter DOHC i-VTEC® Atkinson-cycle in-line 4-cylinder engine, an ultra-quiet 181-horsepower AC synchronous traction motor and a 17-kilowatt hour (kWh), 168-cell lithium-ion battery pack.
With three options for different driving modes, new Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid drivers can choose the best way to operate their vehicles depending on the driving situation. When in EV Drive Mode the Clarity relies solely on electricity generated from the lithium-ion battery pack and electric traction motor. The Hybrid Drive Mode engages both the electric traction motor and utilizes the gasoline engine and generator motor to produce electricity which is sent directly to the traction motor or to the battery pack. When in Engine Drive mode the Clarity operates as a parallel hybrid where the engine and traction motor send power directly from the gasoline engine to the front wheels.
New Clarity drivers will also have their choice of three operating modes; Normal, Econ and Sport allowing for a customized driving experience for maximized performance or efficiency. This new model is well equipped with convenience, connectivity and safety features. It includes LED exterior lighting, Smart Entry with push-button start, Honda Sensing® technology and an an 8-inch Display Audio touchscreen interface with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration.
The exterior design of the Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid are unique from other Clarity models (Clarity Fuel Cell & Clarity Electric) with a distinctive chrome bar above the front grille, a chrome deck lid garnish and color-coordinated 18-inch alloy wheels. This model is also offered with an exclusive new exterior color: Forest Blue Pearl.
