2021 Honda Clarity Fuel Cell Pros

The Honda Clarity enters 2021 with no changes inside and out. The Clarity EV got discontinued this year.

2021 Honda Clarity Fuel Cell Model Highlights

The Clarity Fuel Cell, power delivery is essentially provided by an electric motor that sends power to the front wheels through a single-speed gearbox. However, instead of being powered by a battery, the motor gets electricity through processing hydrogen, stored in a tank at the back of the vehicle. The output numbers are very comparable to conventional gas-powered vehicles, at 174 horsepower with 221 pound-feet of torque. The Fuel Cell version can provide a 360-mile range.

The Clarity Plug-in Hybrid, meanwhile, uses a high-capacity battery for all electric driving, plus it has a gas engine for those times when electric power runs low. This setup allows for a combined 212 horsepower and 232 pound-feet of torque. The Plug-In Hybrid offers a 340-mile combined range rating and 110-mile combined fuel economy.

Standard features on the Clarity include 18-inch aerodynamic alloy wheels, keyless entry with walk-away auto lock, pushbutton start, Full LED headlights, heated front seats, rearview camera, auto-dimming rearview mirror, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and dual zone automatic climate control. Remote Climate Pre-Conditioning, which allows drivers to pre-set and control the interior temperature remotely from a smartphone.

The Touring trim available on the Plug-In Hybrid builds on the standard features with leather seats, leather steering wheel, power adjustable front seats, and voice activated navigation.

The Clarity Fuel Cell includes all the Touring's equipment, plus heads-up display and a 12-speaker audio system with subwoofer.

Safety on the Honda Clarity is on par with other mid-size sedans. Standard safety features include a suite of airbags, traction control, stability control, daytime driving lights and rearview camera. Honda Sensing is also standard on all Clarity models, which is a suite of safety and driver-assistance features including a collision mitigation braking system, a road departure mitigation system, adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assist.
