We are able to run our car for free with solar
This is not the kind of car a person who does not like the most advanced smart phone would like. The instrumentation and entertainment/communication options are very advanced. The electric/battery storage and options for running the vehicle are well presented and with a little study - easy to use. The Clarity hybrid will go 47 miles on battery. Less, if the heater is on. For us with 27 PV solar panels and a utility company that allows us to store kilowatt hour credits for energy we produce and do not use. We will be able to use the 47 mile electric range to do about 90-95 percent of our driving. The solar system was paid for years ago and produces up to 60 KWH's of power per day - it only takes maybe 15-20 KWHs to fully charge the car. So if our daily driving is 47 miles or less, we drive for free - no gas needed. We got the Clarity yesterday. We had to drive about 135 miles to get to a dealer (Mike Maroone Honda in Colorado Springs) who was willing to substantially discount the suggested retail price. And, after going to Carmax to get an trade in sale estimate, Maroone came within $250 of the Carmax and by trading in our Prius Hybrid, we saved on sales tax on the new Clarity - the trade in comes off the purchase price in Colorado before the state and county tax is computed. The Clarity is very comfortable inside - the controls are easy to reach and see. The cruise control with anti collision works wonderfully and given that our drive home was in rush hour traffic, it got used several times. The car brakes easily and comfortably when the anti collision kicks in. The cruise control was easy to use and set and turn off. The lane assist is very quick when lines are visible and you begin to drift out of your lane. It quickly brings you back and vibrates the steering wheel to let you know it is active. We still need to learn how to link phones, use the "seat memory" feature and program our garage door openers to the opener buttons in the car. The Clarity is easy to charge with the included cable that plugs into a standard outlet. You do need to put a hook on the wall near the outlet to support the weight of the charging device. On 120V, it charges overnight to full 47 mile range. We have a lot to learn about the Clarity, how it drives in winter and on snow (we live in the CO mountains - aka - snow country) . But for now, we are very pleased we picked the Clarity Touring Sedan as our newest vehicle.
Warning: Clarity Doesn't Charge Correctly
So...I leased a Clarity 3 weeks ago, and was loving it; charged it at home, great. HOWEVER, when I went to charge it at work, at a ChargePoint charging station, the car stopped charging after only an hour; it hadn't charged and gave me an error message. I went to another ChargePoint station at my workplace, same thing. I looked online and it appears many others are having this problem; there is something in the Clarity that doesn't allow the vehicle to charge properly at certain ChargePoint stations. So if you are going to need to charge your car at a ChargePoint station (as I am, as it is my only option at work), stay away from the Clarity until they fix this bug. If you are skeptical do a search for " Honda Clarity Hybrid Charging Issues", you will see others are having this problem as well. Before I had this issue I loved the car; but it's clearly not ready for prime time. And the folks at Honda somehow seem clueless about it so far, incredibly frustrating.
Smooth & quite Plugin Hybrid with enough EV range
EV range (battery only, per charge): 60-70 miles local commutes (60-80F), 54 miles (one sample HWY, 50 F), HV (Hybrid mode): 50+ MPG (only one sample, 50F), Really quite and smooth ride compared with my 2015 Honda Accord. It smooths out uneven road surface not like my 2015 accord. I had to move around uneven surface to be comfortable with my accord, but with this car, I did not know that i was driving on the same uneven road surface that I drive over daily. Really quite and great sound. The interior gives me luxury feeling (far better than 2015 accord).
