2017 Honda Clarity preview

Wed Sep 07, 2016 7:48 pm

The 2017 Honda Clarity is a mid-size four-door sedan that will ultimately be offered with three different powertrains.

The Clarity Fuel Cell, the first version to launch, will be powered by electricity generated by an onboard fuel cell fed by compressed hydrogen.

Then, next year, two more versions will be added: a Clarity Electric, with a large battery pack powering its electric motor, and a plug-in hybrid with at least 40 miles of electric range.

The 2017 Clarity powered by the hydrogen fuel cellwill go on sale before the end of 2016 in selected regions of California where hydrogen fueling stations are now up and running.

Honda has said it expects to sell only a few hundred units in the car's first year, roughly comparable to the Toyota Mirai sedan and the Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell, the only other two hydrogen-powered vehicles now on sale.

Earlier this year, Honda acknowledged that its long-promised new battery-electric and plug-in hybrid models would be based on the Clarity.

The company has not yet specified many details or explained how different those two vehicles might be from the hydrogen-powered Clarity Fuel Cell.

Honda has previously said the hydrogen-powered Clarity will cost "around $60,000."

That may be slightly more than the Toyota Mirai, which carries a base price before incentives of $57,500, though the Clarity appears to have five seats while the Mirai has only four.

Three powertrains wow, the Hyundai ioniq introduced that this year but I see Honda is using the fuel cell energy as one of the power trains

I'm interested to see if you'll sell technology will take off or if it will not go anywhere with the vehicle purchasing public
