2018 Honda Clarity Plug-in Hybrid Performance Features
The unique thing about plug-in hybrids is that they have the best of both worlds— using high-capacity battery for electric driving and when it’s needed, switching to a gasoline hybrid system. In fact, the 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-in Hybrid is equipped with an efficient in-line 4-cylinder engine, an AC Permanent-Magnet Synchronous Electric Motor and a 17-kWh lithium-ion battery. Each component in the system contributes to the amazing efficiency that the plug-in hybrid is able to achieve. Plus, there is the regenerative braking feature that helps charge the battery during deceleration.
When using only electric power, the Clarity Plug-in Hybrid is able to receive a 110 MPGe rating; then when it is using only gasoline, it has a combined rating of 42 MPG. And to top it off, when the Clarity combines gas and electric power, it receives a 340-mile driving range rating!*
