Honda Bringing Clarity To New York Show

Today Honda formally announced plans to bring two new versions of its Clarity nameplate to this year’s New York Auto Show. The company will reveal the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid and Clarity Electric cars, both of which are variants of the company’s fuel cell car that have been anticipated for sometime.

Along with the announcement, the company released the above teaser shot of the entire Clarity family. Honda has been selling the Clarity powered by a fuel cell in California since late last year. Their key selling point with the entire Clarity lineup is the fact that the car is a five-passenger midsize sedan, versus a compact or small car like many alternative propulsion vehicles.

Honda stated, “As the next progression of Honda’s dynamic styling for electrified products, each Clarity variant has a low, wide aerodynamic body with unique design elements. Combined with elegant and advanced exterior styling, the Clarity series boasts spacious interiors outfitted with premium, environmentally-responsible materials. Offering Honda “fun-to-drive” DNA, each Clarity variant provides a smooth, quiet and premium experience, with great dynamic handling plus seamless electric drive torque and acceleration. The Clarity series also features advanced technologies, including Display Audio with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™, and standard Honda Sensing™ safety and driver-assistive technologies.”

They went on to confirm that the Clarity Plug-In will offer up to 40 miles of electric range on a full charge and be sold in all 50 states. Preliminary rumors have suggested the Clarity Electric will have around 80 miles of total range.

    This one I want to see. I also like that they are diversifying the line up.
