2019 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid Pros

The Honda Clarity carries over to 2019 unchanged.

2019 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid Model Highlights

The Clarity's motivation comes from a trio of advanced powertrain options. Three distinct versions are available; Electric, Fuel Cell and Plug-In Hybrid.

The Clarity Electric gets its power through a quiet and powerful electric motor and Lithium-ion batteries. The electric motor provides immediate acceleration with 221 pound-feet of torque and 161 horsepower. The electric motor provides an 89-mile range rating, and with three charging options, it can be charged up to 80% in as little as 30 minutes.

With the Clarity Fuel Cell version, 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 combined 366-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 181 horsepower and 233 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, LED headlights, heated front seats, rearview camera, auto-dimming rearview mirror, adjustable heated front seats and an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The Touring trim available on the Plug-In Hybrid builds on the standard features with leather seats, leather steering wheel, power adjustable front seats, voice recognition and satellite navigation. Remote Climate Pre-Conditioning is also a feature on the Touring, which allows drivers to pre-set and control the interior temperature remotely from a smartphone.

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.

2019 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid Model News

The 2019 Honda Clarity features by a well-appointed interior, comfortable ride and the option of three powertrain choices, two of which are considered zero emissions. The Clarity competes with the Toyota Prius and Chevy Volt, and with a starting price near $33,000, becomes an excellent option for eco-minded drivers. Those looking for a comfortable sedan with good fuel economy should look to the Honda Clarity as a viable option to step outside of the standard gas-engine sedans.
