2019 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid Performance Leaves Nothing to be Desired

The 2019 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid is an efficient sedan that provides a powerful and dynamic performance on the road. Along with a sophisticated cabin, “this plug-in hybrid also has fast charging times, good electric range, and stellar fuel economy,” according to U.S. News and World Report. With a unique electric motor combined with an efficient hybrid engine, the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid can go the distance and give drivers a powerful performance on every journey.

  • Drive for long distances without the restrictions of battery life.
  • Recharge and refuel in convenient and simple ways.
  • Active safety features enhance an already powerful performance.

Electric Motor

The Clarity Plug-In Hybrid generates electric power with an AC Permanent-Magnet Synchronous Electric Motor using a 17 kWh lithium-ion battery. By itself, the motor produces 181 horsepower and 232 lb-ft of torque. Powerful and long-lasting, the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid achieves a Maximum EV Mode Driving Range Rating of 47 miles, which is long enough to cover many driver’s daily commutes without using a drop of fuel.

Hybrid Engine

Unlike other electric vehicles, the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid has an efficient hybrid engine that takes over when the battery starts to wane. It can take drivers long past the limits and mile ranges of the battery, while still offering incredible efficiency. And with the engine and motor working together in this hybrid system, the Clarity achieves a total horsepower of 212.


Working in tandem with the engine and motor is an Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission (E-CVT). It expertly transfers the power generated under the hood and delivers it to the wheels, contributing the overall efficiency of the Clarity’s powertrain. The transmission also features a Sport Mode and Deceleration Paddle Selectors because driving, according to the the Clarity, should be fun and engaging.

Recharge and Refuel

The Clarity Plug-In Hybrid makes recharging the battery simple and convenient with two different ways to go about it. The first method is the most cost-effective and fastest option. Simply plug the Clarity into a 240-volt charger for just 2.5 hours to recharge the battery fully. For the times when a 240-volt charger isn’t available, the Clarity can be recharged through a standard 120-volt wall power outlet. This second method takes 12 hours for the battery to recharge fully.

When you’re on the road, there are over 36,000 EV charging stations across the United States. Apps like HondaLink can make locating these stations fast, simple, and easy. To refuel the engine, simply fill up the tank at any gas station.

Fuel Economy

Able to operate on electric power alone, the Clarity achieves a Maximum EV Mode Driving Range Rating of 47 miles. That may well cover most driver’s daily commutes. But for drivers who exceed beyond that range, the hybrid engine is designed to take over and gives the Clarity a Combined Gas-Electric Range Rating of 340 miles. The miles per gallon estimates for the hybrid engine are:

  • Gasoline-Electric Miles Per Gallon Equivalent (MPGe, Combined) – 110 miles*
  • Gasoline-Only MPG – 44 city / 40 highway / 42 combined mpg*

Active Safety Features Boost Performance

The strong and dynamic performance of the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid gets added enhancements with a long list of active safety features. These features make sure that the Clarity is performing at its best, even in inclement weather.

  • Vehicle Stability Stability Assist with Traction
  • Anti-Lock Braking System
  • Electronic Brake Distribution
  • Brake Assist
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System
  • LED Daytime Running Lights
