Honda has announced that the Clarity Fuel Cell vehicle will be produced in electric and plug-in hybrid versions starting next year. Both new additions will be based on the same platform as the fuel cell version and this also means that the Clarity will be the first vehicle to be offered in fuel cell, plug-in hybrid and electric versions.
The Clarity Electric will be released first, which will be followed by the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid later in 2017. The Clarity plug-in hybrid will be able to drive over 40 miles in fully electric mode.
“The Honda Clarity Series will provide customers with a well-equipped, premium, midsize vehicle with range of ultra low-carbon powertrain options to suit their lifestyle needs,” said John Mendel, executive vice president, Automobile Division, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “This Honda trio of dedicated, advanced technology vehicles, along with the expanded application of two- and three-motor hybrid systems to our core models, represents a strong commitment to Honda’s future and will help create a new volume pillar for electrified vehicle sales.”
