Changing the Landscape
The 2017 Honda Clarity Electric is the second vehicle announced in the Clarity series, which focuses on providing solely electric powertrain options. This specific model takes huge strides in preserving the environment by emitting zero emissions. The vehicle is powered by a electric engine setup with a 25.5-kWh lithium-ion battery pack that has the ability to produce up to 161 hp and 221 lb-ft of torque. The current EPA-estimated mileage rating for the Clarity Electric is 126 mpg city and 103 mpg highway with a range rating of 89 miles on a full charge.* This is great news considering fully charging the vehicle can be done in around three hours with 240 volts. However, if you opt for the DC fast charging with SAE combined charging system, the vehicle can reach up to 80% charge in just 30 minutes! Currently, the 2017 Honda Clarity Electric is available only at select dealerships in California and Oregon. This limited release is simply a way for Honda to provide the technology it has been working on to real consumers to see how they can continue to make large strides towards better electric vehicles.
