Honda introduced plug-in hybrid and all-electric versions of its Clarity in April last year, which joined the Clarity Fuel Cell already available since 2016. Now, the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid stars in a new walk-around video, where we are given a tour of the sedan with green credentials.

For starters, the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid boasts an EPA combined range rating of up to 547 km in hybrid mode, or 76 km if you only rely on the electric motor and battery. Said is a 17 kWh unit that takes about 2.5 hours to charge at 240 volts (12 hours with 120 volts).

The car’s powertrain includes a 1.5 litre Atkinson-cycle engine, which depending on need, can be used to charge the battery or drive the front wheels. Despite the apparent complexity of the plug-in hybrid setup, the Clarity doesn’t compromise on functionality.

There’s 439 litres of boot space available, which can be expanded with the 60:40 split-folding seats down. Honda says this gives the Clarity more cargo space than a Kia Optima Plug-In Hybrid. Other models dragged in for comparison’s sake are the Toyota Prius Prime and Chevrolet Volt, with Honda claiming its PHEV will seat five comfortably when compared.

Plenty of plus points then, and it gets better with an equipment list that includes Honda Sensing as standard on all variants. Included in the suite is Collision Mitigation Braking (CMBS), Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow) and Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS).
