Engine and Motor

The Clarity Plug-In Hybrid combines electric power with a hybrid engine to make one of the most efficient vehicles on the road. The 17.0k-Wh lithium ion battery allows drivers to drive on electric power alone with an estimated 47-mile range* before the hybrid engine kicks in on longer trips. The hybrid has a combined gas-electric range of 340 miles* to keep you going, even after the battery runs low. The 103-hp, 1.5L inline-4 engine will also activate a generator to provide additional power to the motor and recharge the battery.


The motor and engine system work in tandem with an electronic continuously variable transmission (E-CVT) with Sport Mode and deceleration paddle selectors. The power is directed to the front wheels and achieves a total system horsepower of 212.

Refueling and Recharging

There are several different refueling and recharging options to cover different situations. For the fastest and least expensive recharge, plug the Clarity into a 240-volt charger for just 2.5 hours.

To refuel the engine, simply go to any gas station and fill up the tank traditionally.
