The Honda Clarity Electric will come first and only be available for lease in California and Oregon. Pricing for the new versions has not been announced.
The Clarity Electric shares most of its powertrain components with the Clarity Fuel Cell, although Honda won't specify exactly how much is common. This delivers a maximum output of 181 horsepower and 232 lb-ft of torque and relies on the help of a 17-kWh battery pack and a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine acting as a generator. Honda has set a target of selling 75,000 Clarity cars - fuel cell, hybrid, or all-electric - annually, starting next year.
The fuel-cell model, debuting in NY as a forest green color, will be available this supper. Topping up the battery pack takes two and a half hours when the pack is plugged into a 240-volt charger.
Steve Center, who's Honda's vice president in connected and environmental business development, says "we're really at the beginning of the vertical" when it comes to electrified auto adoption - including hybrid vehicles with gasoline powered motors.
The Clarity PHEV's all-electric range is expected to be 42 miles (68 km), which Honda says would be the most of any midsize PHEV vehicle sold in the US, topping the Toyota Prius Prime and Hyundai Sonata PHEV's respective 25-mile (40-km) and 27-mile (43-km) all-electric range.
The Clarity Electric, meanwhile, does what it does with 161 hp and 221 lb-ft of torque, so the engine tuning is a little different, but it carries less weight. Honda expects this PHEV to earn an overall EPA fuel economy rating of 105 mpg-equivalent.
With the fuel-cell variant (often depicted in burgundy) already offered in select parts of California, Honda will next roll out the EV (pictured in blue) later this year though still as a 2017 model, starting in OR and (you guessed it) California. The higher-volume plug-in hybrid also will get two trims, a base and Touring.
How the fuel cell cars generate electricity to run the motor and the battery is by mixing oxygen and hydrogen in specially treated plates, which combine to generate a fuel cell stack.
The vehicle provides three distinct driving modes including Econ, Sport, and Normal.
"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". Lease includes Roadside Assistance, up to $15,000 of hydrogen fuel, and up to 21 days Avis luxury rental vehicle.
But the filling stations are the biggest obstacle for the fuel cell cars. Unlike the fuel cell auto, the plug-in hybrid Clarity will be available to buy or lease in all 50 states later this year at a price expected to be around $35,000.
Indeed, Honda says the Clarity PHEV will be good enough for more than 330 miles on a full battery and a full tank of gas. The Clarity Fuel Cell is available for the competitive introductory lease price of $369 a month for 36 months with $2,868 due at signing The lease terms include an attractive mileage allowance of 20,000 miles per year, up to $15,000 of hydrogen fuel, up to 21 days of an Avis Luxury Rental in California, 24/7 roadside assistance, and eligibility for California "White Sticker" single occupant HOV access.
