The Honda Clarity Series, which includes the Clarity Plug-in Hybrid, Clarity Electric, and Clarity Fuel Cell has been named as the 2018 Green Car of the Year by Green Car Journal at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
The magazine highlighted that the Clarity is the only model in this year’s list of contenders to offer plug-in hybrid, electric and hydrogen fuel cell power. In addition, the Clarity Plug-in Hybrid received praise for having the highest all-electric range rating among all plug-in hybrid sedans with its range rating of 47 miles.
“The Green Car of the Year award is further validation of Honda’s approach to electrification with the Clarity family of vehicles,” said Steven Center, vice president of connected and environmental business at American Honda. “The Clarity Plug-in Hybrid, Clarity Electric and Clarity Fuel Cell offer the power of choice to consumers who want to step in to an electrified vehicle without the compromise. We are proud to deliver on that promise to offer these three advanced powertrains you can only find from Honda in a roomy five-passenger sedan with all the creature comforts that consumers expect today.”
The Clarity Electric and Clarity Fuel Cell are already on sale, while the 2018 Clarity Plug-in Hybrid goes on sale on December 1. The Clarity Plug-in Hybrid is priced at $34,290, while if you live in California you can currently lease the Clarity Electric for only $199 a month.
