2018 Honda Clarity Hybrid for Sale
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.
