Here at Executive Honda, we know that environmentally-friendly cars have started to attract more attention. Drivers are looking for a way to save money on fuel while also lowering their carbon footprint. That’s why it’s no surprise that more Honda vehicles are embracing green technology. One interesting model that will soon arrive at dealerships is the 2018 Honda Clarity. This plug-in hybrid electric vehicle will definitely interest eco-conscious drivers, especially since it has a class-leading electric range.
Most drivers know that a hybrid car offers better fuel economy than a typical vehicle. It uses a combination of traditional fuel and electric power to travel farther while cutting emissions and reducing your trips to the gas station. The electric range of one of these vehicles refers to how far it can travel on just electric power. This new Honda model can travel 47 miles on just electric power when it’s been fully charged. That tops other midsize plug-in hybrids on the market.
That’s what’s also so great about the 2018 Honda Clarity: it’s a midsize car, just like the 2017 Honda Accord. Some people think of electric or hybrid cars as tiny vehicles. Not so with the new Honda Clarity. It will offer the legroom and cargo space that you’ve come to expect from a conventional model.
Overall, the 2018 Honda Clarity will have a total range of 340 miles. It’s powered by an efficient 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that can put out 181 horsepower and 232 lb.-ft. of torque. Plus it can be recharged in less than three hours.
We can’t wait to see this new green car in action later this year. If you’re looking for a new car right now or have any questions about upcoming models like the 2018 Honda Clarity, talk to our Honda dealers in CT. We’re ready to answer all of your questions.
