ALL-NEW HONDA CLARITY ELECTRIC & PLUG-IN HYBRID MODELS WILL MAKE THEIR WORLD DEBUT IN NEW YORK


The all-new Honda Clarity Plug-in Hybrid and Honda Clarity Electric will make their worldwide debut at the 2017 New York International Auto Show. 

The two all-new, electrified Honda vehicles will make Clarity the first vehicle series to offer customers an expanded array of electrified vehicle choices with fuel cell, battery electric and plug-in hybrid powertrains wrapped in a sporty, spacious and comprehensively equipped five-passenger midsize sedan.

The Clarity series is part of Honda's commitment to address society's energy and environmental concerns as the company expects significant growth in sales of electrified vehicles. Honda has announced its intention to make two-thirds of its global auto sales from electrified vehicles by 2030. 

The official teaser sketch of the Clarity series released today includes the never-before-seen Clarity Plug-in Hybrid and Clarity Electric flanking the currently available Clarity Fuel Cell. As the next progression of Honda's dynamic styling for electrified products, each Clarity variant has a low, wide aerodynamic body with unique design elements. Combined with elegant and advanced exterior styling, the Clarity series boasts spacious interiors outfitted with premium, environmentally-responsible materials. Offering Honda "fun-to-drive" DNA, each Clarity variant provides a smooth, quiet and premium experience, with great dynamic handling plus seamless electric drive torque and acceleration. The Clarity series also features advanced technologies, including Display Audio with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™, and standard Honda Sensing™ safety and driver-assistive technologies.

The Clarity Electric will be the first affordable, midsize, five-passenger battery electric vehicle (BEV). The third vehicle in the Clarity series, the Clarity Plug-in Hybrid, will launch in all 50 states and will be the volume leader in the series, combining an all-electric driving range rating in excess of 40 miles with a hyper-efficient gasoline-hybrid extended range mode.
