Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid Efficiency
One of the main perks of driving a plug-in hybrid like the Honda Clarity is the efficiency. Not only can this vehicle save you time at the pump, but it’s eco-friendly, too.
The Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid runs on a 1.5L Atkinson-cycle I-4 engine that generates 103 horsepower and 99 lb-ft of torque on its own. This is paired with an AC Permanent-Magnet Synchronous Electric Motor, which delivers 181 horsepower and 232 lb-ft of torque. Together, this vehicle has a total output of 212 horsepower.
The Clarity Plug-In Hybrid includes a 17-kWh battery that holds an electric charge, so you can fully operate on electric power when you really want to reduce fuel usage. This car can travel up to an estimated 47 miles on electric power when fully charged.1
Once you run out of charge, the gas engine will kick in to help you reach the full estimated 340-mile combined gas-electric range on a full tank of gas.1Meanwhile, the gas engine gets an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 44 city and 40 highway MPG.1
Clarity Plug-In Hybrid Infotainment
If you want an instant read on your car’s charging status, energy use, or expected range, you can find all of it in the Driver Information Interface on the driver’s dashboard.
For entertainment information, however, you’ll find tons of features housed on the 8-inch full-color touchscreen display, such as:
- Standard Bluetooth® connectivity
- Android Auto™
- Apple CarPlay™
Like many other Honda vehicles, the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid makes safety a standard feature thanks to the Honda Sensing® safety suite, which comes standard on every trim level. These high-tech features are designed to help increase awareness of your surroundings, ensuring you can drive safely.
Honda Sensing® features include:
- Collision Mitigation Braking System™
- Road Departure Mitigation System
- Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow
- Lane Keeping Assist System
You’ll also have access to the Honda LaneWatch™ system. This useful feature helps you change lanes in well-traveled areas with the help of a camera on the passenger-side mirror. When you engage your right turn signal, this system will provide a live video feed of your passenger-side blind spot, allowing you to merge with extra precaution.
