Perfect car if it meets your driving profile
I finally had it with my BMW(Break My Wallet) and went shopping for a Honda Ridgeline back in December 2017. Honda dropped the least and drive off fee at that time. I've had 5 Accords and a Pilot and think very highly of the brand. I live in Sacramento. I reviewed my driving patterns on Google and found that I drove to North Dakota once, Chico and San Francisco several times. All other driving in the last five years was local and under 70 miles a day. I called all the dealerships in the area to test drive one and found several in Lodi(60 miles away). I was sold after the test drive because of my trust in Honda, familiarity with Accords, and the torque from 0mph or at 80mph. I had to wait for two hours after completing the lease agreement for the Clarity to charge on a 110V line at the dealership! I had range anxiety all the way home, esp. as traffic slowed in Sacramento. CA gave me a check for $2500, my utility company gave me a $700 L2 charger and a discount rate of .07 kw/h if I charge between midnight and 6am. Because I am a moderate driver and don't use the electric heat warmers, a full charge shows 110 mile range. I can drive to the gym, work, lunch, home to pick up my wife, and go downtown for dinner and still not use 70 miles of range. It's difficult in Sac to go 100 miles. When we need to go to SF/Chico/Humboldt/Tahoe we take my wife's Lexus. My kw/h usage is $0.85 for the first hour after midnight. Considering how much I am saving not buying gas or paying repair shop bills this car will reduce the cost of that future Ridgeline. My decision to lease this car and postpone a purchase has nothing to do with the environmentally friendly green movement. I was indifferent to the electric drive train but after two months of driving I will have a difficult time returning to combustion engine. If the battery tech improves and Honda swaps out the battery at the end of the lease I will seriously consider keeping it. But I would really like a small truck that is electric. So our kids are gone, my wife has a long range vehicle, and I cannot exceed 89 miles in daily driving. This compliance car is perfect for me, not my neighbors or co-workers.
More than expected
Better than I dreamed
ELECTRIC IS THE WAY OF THE FUTURE!
fantastic for local driving. I have put approximately 1000 miles on the car in a little over a month, and have not yet needed to fill my tank with gas.

The 2018 Honda Clarity consists of three versions that offer distinctly different modes of propulsion. The first is the Clarity Fuel Cell, a rare kind of vehicle that is fueled by hydrogen, which is subsequently manipulated to produce electricity. There's also the Clarity Electric, a battery electric vehicle, and the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid, a version that uses gasoline and electricity.

Because of the limited hydrogen refueling infrastructure, the Clarity Fuel Cell is available only to qualified California residents on a three-year lease. This limited distribution also means the Clarity Fuel Cell comes in a single trim, fully loaded with features. Interestingly, Honda provides $15,000 worth of hydrogen fuel over the three-year lease, and the Clarity qualifies for a $5,000 rebate under California's Clean Vehicle Rebate Project. Likewise, the Clarity Electric is lease-only, making the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid the only version you have the option of purchasing.

As fully loaded models, some of the premium features in the Clarity Fuel Cell and Electric include leather seats, automatic wipers, keyless entry and push-button start, dual-zone climate control with a Plasmacluster ion air quality management, power-adjustable and heated front seats, a 12-speaker premium audio system, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a navigation system with hydrogen refueling station and traffic info, satellite radio, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto capability, and remote app control over some vehicle functions through the HondaLink telematics system. The Clarity Plug-In Hybrid is the only Clarity that offers more than one trim level, the base version of which forgoes the leather and navigation of the Touring trim.

Every Clarity also comes with virtually every active safety feature Honda offers as well, including a multiangle rearview camera with dynamic guidelines, adaptive cruise control with low-speed following, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning and intervention, a head-up display and Honda LaneWatch.

The Clarity Fuel Cell competes with one car only, the Toyota Mirai, which costs slightly less to lease but falls short of the Clarity's space and driving range. Meanwhile, the Clarity Electric's range puts it at the bottom of the EV pack. The Clarity Plug-In Hybrid is the most practical and relevant version for most buyers.
