Here are the bullet points on the new electrified Honda Clarity cars introduced. Pricing for the new versions has not been announced.
With the Clarity, Honda is letting customers choose whether an EV, a plug-in hybrid, or a hydrogen auto is right for them. Honda hopes that the new three-in-one strategy will help drive a fivefold sales expansion of United States electrified vehicle sales over the next four years, part of a greater plan to convert two thirds of its global sales to electrified models by 2020.
The Clarity Fuel Cell is the ultimate zero-emissions model for those who want to take it a step further.
The full-electric version has an 80-mile range and can be recharged in three hours on a 240-volt outlet. By 2030, Honda says two-thirds of its global sales will come from electrified cars. Thats more than the $354 monthly lease payment for the Chevrolet Bolt electric.
The 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-in Hybrid, launching at dealerships nationwide later this year, is anticipated to earn an all-electric driving range rating of 42 miles, the longest of any midsize plug-in hybrid.
Honda says it expects a top-of-class 105 MPGe fuel-economy rating for the PHEV, which goes on sale later this year in the U.S.

The PHEV comes in two trim levels, standard and Touring, while the EV has one grade.
We liked the idea of a single platform with multiple electrified powertrain options when Hyundai introduced the IONIQ lineup a year ago, and we had a feeling it might be something we'd see repeated by other automakers. There are three drive modes - Normal, Econ, and Sport - with a HV setting that can optionally preserve the battery's charge for use later on.
"But for those purists, he noted, if you want a large, luxurious, 5-passenger battery-electric sedan that's affordable, the Clarity EV is your vehicle". As the name suggests, these two vehicles are actually different models of the same auto. Honda will also start an attractive lease scheme for the vehicle in California and Oregon.
