  • Road Test
  • Predicted Reliability
  • Predicted Owner Satisfaction
The new Clarity comes in three versions: a fully electric, a plug-in hybrid, and a hydrogen fuel-cell called FCV, which has a claimed driving range beyond 300 miles. It takes 3 to 5 minutes to fully fuel it with hydrogen. There is also a Clarity Electric version, which has a short EPA-rated range of 89 miles and is leased for $199 per month. The Plug-In Hybrid is the most viable of the three versions. It delivers a 40-mile all-electric range before the gas engine kicks in. It takes 2.5 hours to recharge with a 240-volt charger. The Clarity has a comfortable ride and competent handling. The cabin is roomy enough for adults. All versions come standard with forward-collision warning and automatic emergency braking, along with Honda's unintuitive push-button gear selector.
