Honda Clarity To Roll Out Electric And Hybrid Models, Features Hydrogen Fuel Cell
In the latest reports, Honda will be adding two more zero-emissions options to its car lineup during next month's New York Auto Show. In the said event, the Japanese automaker will be rolling out the Clarity Plug-in Hybrid and Clarity Electric to complement its hydrogen-powered Clarity Fuel Cell.
Honda's Main Mission
According to New York Daily News, with these battery-powered vehicles, Honda is aiming to be the very first major carmaker company to offer fully electric powertrains and fuel cell, plug-in hybrid all on the same series of vehicles. The move will also be part of its mission to electrify two-thirds of its global sales by the year 2030.
Honda's History With Emission-free Vehicles
To recall, Honda first featured an emission-free vehicle to the market in 2008, the hydrogen-powered FCX Clarity, which was available back then only for lease in Southern California. In 2016, the FCX was then replaced by the Clarity Fuel Cell, which is also restricted and exclusive to California because of the lack of charging stations elsewhere in the country.
The next Clarity that is slated to hit the open market is the Electric, which is believed to be the very first affordable battery-only mid-sized sedan, although Honda has yet to announce the official price range. The final Clarity will be the lineup's volume seller, which is the Plug-in Hybrid, expected to feature an electric-only range of more than 40 miles to go along with an efficient gasoline-electric hybrid driving mode.
About The Three Vehicles
Based on a teaser sketch released in advance of the New York Auto Show, it appears that the three vehicles will have a similar aerodynamic front end design, but Honda also promises some unique styling elements for each as well as very spacious interiors with environmentally-friendly materials. According to Left Lane News, the interior also includes Display Audio and connectivity features such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as the brand's signature Honda Sensing driver assistance package is also going to be a standard feature.
