Early in the life of the Honda Clarity FCV, the automaker announced it would offer a full lineup of green cars under the Clarity name. Its plans were to release an electric and a plug-in hybrid version. In the 2017 model year, we got our first glimpse at the electric version, and now, we finally get all the info on the plug-in version, including its price.
We’ve already learned a lot about the Clarity Plug-In, as it debuted at the 2017 New York Auto Show in April, but today we get all the official little details. The biggest thing we learned recently was that the 2018 Honda Clarity’s price will range from $33,400 to $36,600. And this is before the federal EV tax credit, which Honda claims can be up to the full $7,500 on the Clarity Plug-In.
For its relatively low starting price, the 2018 Clarity Plug-In comes very well equipped. It comes standard with Smart Start and Entry, an eight-speaker audio system with SiriusXM and HD Radio, dual-zone auto climate control, heated front seats, cruise control, Honda Sensing, Honda LaneWatch, 18-inch wheels, LED daytime running lights and taillights, and more.
The Clarity Plug-In Hybrid’s 212-horsepower powertrain delivers up to 47 miles of EV range, 110 combined mpg-e, and hybrid fuel economy ratings of 44 mpg city, 40 mpg highway, and 42 mpg combined.
The 2018 Clarity Plug-In Hybrid will be available at Honda dealers starting Dec. 1, 2017.
