‘Clarity’ Line to Debut at New York Auto Show

American Honda will unveil its new line of “Clarity” electric vehicles at the New York International Auto Show, which runs April 14-23 at the Javits Center in Manhattan.

The ‘official teaser sketch’ of Honda’s Clarity series includes the Clarity Plug-in Hybrid and Clarity Electric flanking the currently available Clarity Fuel Cell. Honda is talking up ‘dynamic styling’ for its electrified automobiles, boasting ‘a low, wide aerodynamic body [combining] elegant and advanced exterior styling [and] spacious interiors outfitted with premium, environmentally-responsible materials.’

The Honda line-up includes the all-new Honda Clarity Plug-in Hybrid and Honda Clarity Electric will make their worldwide debut at the 2017 New York International Auto Show.

Clarity, the manufacturer says, “represents the first vehicle series to offer customers an expanded array of electrified vehicle choices with fuel cell, battery electric and plug-in hybrid powertrains wrapped in a sporty, spacious and comprehensively equipped five-passenger midsize sedan… the vanguard of Honda’s commitment to address society’s energy and environmental concerns.”

Clarity PHEV to Have 40-Mile All-Electric Range

Honda says that its Clarity Electric will be the first affordable, midsize, five-passenger all-battery EV. The Clarity Plug-in Hybrid is to launch in all 50 states “and will be the volume leader in the series, combining an all-electric driving range rating in excess of 40 miles with a hyper-efficient gasoline-hybrid extended range mode.”

The hydrogen-fueled Honda Clarity Fuel Cell is available in California (F&F, November 18).

Honda says it expects two-thirds of its global auto sales to come from electrified vehicles by 2030.
