Clean Driving in the 2018 Honda Clarity


While SUVs and hybrids may currently dominate the automotive landscape, there’s still a great deal of demand for a classy and reliable midsize car. The 2018 Honda Clarity is one such offering. Thanks to its intelligent design and even more intelligent builds, the Honda Clarity is a top choice for drivers in the Virginia Beach and Chesapeake, VA areas looking for a well-rounded vehicle.

The beauty of this Honda car comes from its three smartly designed offerings. Last year saw the debut of the Honda Clarity Fuel Cell, an electric model that doesn’t require a plug to recharge because it generates electricity from compressed hydrogen stored on board. The hydrogen mixes with oxygen, causing the fuel cells to emit water and electricity.

Then there’s the Honda Clarity Electric. This model is a battery electric vehicle that operates and functions like other standard electric vehicles. Finally, there’s the new Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid. It offers a long electric range and can recharge at home.

The plug-in hybrid version comes in two trims: Base and Touring. Both offer a 1.5-liter four-cylinder gas engine paired to an electric motor that puts out 212 horsepower and 232 lb-ft of torque along with the 17-kWh lithium-ion battery. Standard features include an 8-inch infotainment screen, automatic climate control, and two USB ports. It also features the Honda Sensing™ safety suite. The Honda Clarity Fuel Cell features an electric motor that makes 174 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque delivered to the front wheels. Lastly, the Honda Clarity Electric offers an electric motor which produces 161 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque matched with a 25.5-kWh lithium-ion battery.

With a modern interior, excellent handling, and smartphone integration, the 2018 Honda Clarity offers drivers with a sensible and comfortable option that will keep you riding smoothly and safely day after day.
