Honda has always been one of the most forward-thinking automobile manufacturers, and this year, they’re planting one foot firmly in the future by releasing the 2017 Honda Clarity Electric, their newest fully electric car. It’s worth noting from the outset that Honda has been utilizing electric motors in their vehicles for quite some time, and each year, they get a little closer to perfection. Writing for CNET Roadshow, one reviewer has praised the Clarity Electric’s performance: “the ride is comfortable and quiet, thanks to its well sorted suspension and silent powertrain.” Any driver familiar with electric cars will understand that the Clarity Electric’s cabin sets it far apart from other competitors. Although the Clarity Electric is currently available only in California and Oregon, Detroit area drivers can get a sense of this manufacturer’s direction by exploring its capabilities in greater detail.
