Honda Announced two additional Clarity Vehicles
Honda has announced that two additional Clarity variations, the Clarity Electric and Clarity Plug-in Hybrid, will be joining the Clarity Fuel Cell in the U.S. in 2017. The two additional Clarity vehicles, makes Clarity the first vehicle in the industry to offer fuel cell, electric and plug-in hybrid technology on one model platform.
"The Honda Clarity Series will provide customers with a well-equipped, premium, midsize vehicle with range of ultra-low carbon powertrain options to suit their lifestyle needs," said John Mendel, executive vice president, Automobile Division, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "This Honda trio of dedicated, advanced technology vehicles, along with the expanded application of two- and three-motor hybrid systems to our core models, represents a strong commitment to Honda's future and will help create a new volume pillar for electrified vehicle sales."
The first of the Clarity Series to launch will be the Clarity Fuel Cell, Honda's most technologically advanced vehicle ever, slated to begin deliveries to customers in select California markets in late 2016. The Clarity Fuel Cell will have a targeted monthly lease price of under $500.
Following the U.S. launch of the Clarity Fuel Cell, the Clarity Electric will go on-sale in 2017. The Clarity Electric will be the first affordable, midsize, five-passenger battery electric vehicle (BEV) to offer premium content and features.
The third vehicle in the Clarity series, the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid, will launch in all 50 states later in 2017 and will be the volume leader in the series, seamlessly combining an all-electric driving range in excess of 40 miles with a hyper-efficient gasoline-hybrid extended range mode.
