Say hi to the all-new Honda Clarity PHEV hybrid model

Honda gained a lot of attention at the recent New York International Auto Show when the Japanese automaker unveiled its all-new 2018 Honda Clarity, an electric car that will be offered in several different versions, starting with a plug-in hybrid that is expected to arrive on the market later this year.

With the Honda Clarity, Honda will offer consumers a dynamic, fun-to-drive car that can both save a lot of fuel for its owners while helping the planet.

An efficient plug-in engine for the 2018 Honda Clarity

There will be three versions in the Honda Clarity range. The first is a 100% electric variant and the second features a hydrogen-powered engine. These two models will not come to Canada immediately, but they showcase Honda's expertise in fuel-efficient vehicles. The model we are particularly interested in is the Honda Clarity plug-in hybrid that will be introduced later this year.

The Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid offers uncompromising fuel economy and is part of Honda's strategy to electrify two-thirds of its range of new vehicles by 2030.

“The Honda Clarity is aimed at accelerating the deployment of advanced electrified powertrain technology and bringing electrified vehicles further into the mainstream,” said Jean Marc Leclerc, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Honda Canada. “The Plug-In Hybrid coming to Canada later this year represents a no compromise alternative fuel vehicle that meet the needs our Canadian customers today while building the foundation of an electrified future.”

68 kilometers of autonomy for the Honda Clarity in electric mode

The Honda Clarity plug-in hybrid will be powered by a 1.5-liter Atkinson cycle four-cylinder engine that will be paired with a 181-horsepower electric motor that also features 232 lb.-ft. of torque. The latter gets its energy from a 17 kWh battery pack that can be recharged in just 2.5 hours with a 240-volt outlet.

Thus equipped, the Honda Clarity can travel up to 68 kilometers using only its electric motor and thus without needing any fuel. Once the battery is flat, it is possible to travel nearly 530 kilometers thanks to the gasoline engine.

It is therefore possible for a Clarity owner to carry out the majority of their daily commute without needing a single drop of fuel while having the option to travel greater distances without any problems, like you would do with a normal car.
