Available in six colors, the Clarity cruises along with sophisticated good looks and a confident driving experience.

The Clarity also offers a highly customizable driving experience. There are three different driving modes, Econ, Normal, and Sport, which alter the acceleration and pedal response. There’s also HV mode, which lets you optimize your battery charging. HV mode can regenerate up to 50% of the Clarity’s all-electric range.

The Clarity provides a premium cabin with beautiful details and thoughtful conveniences. With its spacious body frame, there’s plenty of room in the rear seats for five adults to sit comfortably and with plenty of legroom. The cabin is trimmed with plant-derived bio-fabrics and ultra-suede created through recycling technology, so your sedan can be comfortable and luxurious as well as eco-friendly.

The Clarity also has Honda’s innovative Electronic Gear Selector to help create a more spacious console, as well as a push-button start system. You can control the whole car from the steering wheel, including making and answering phone calls, controlling music, or getting direction.
For anyone who needs storage as well as economy, the Clarity provides an amazing 15.5 cubic feet of cargo area. With the battery located under the back seats instead of in the trunk area, there’s plenty of room to show your gear and be on your way. The Clarity also has handy 60/40 split-folding rear seats in case you need a more versatile space!
