The upcoming 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-in Hybrid, part of Honda’s CO2 Emission Reduction initiative, earned the highest all-electric rating among midsize plug-in hybrids with its EPA range rating of 47 miles on a full charge.* Coming later this year to Detroit Area Honda Dealers and dealerships across the country, the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid will have a combined 110 EPA-rated mpge,* among the top in its class. Read on to see what the future holds for this exciting innovation in transportation brought to you by Honda engineers.

Technology for Efficiency

The Clarity Hybrid is powered by a 181 hp electric motor capable of producing 232 lb-ft of torque. It draws power from both the traditional gasoline engine and a 17 kwh battery pack. For longer-distance trips, the Clarity Plug-in Hybrid uses a super-efficient  1.5L Atkinson cycle 4-cylinder engine to generate electricity, and in certain situations, act as a direct power source, giving the Hybrid an overall range of 340 miles.* The Hybrid will have three driving modes to choose from—Normal, Econ, and Sport—each offering a different mix of gas and electric power to suit your needs. The battery pack will reach full charge in 2.5 hours, getting you on the road fast.
