The 2021 Honda Clarity : A Different Type of Honda

The 2021 Honda Clarity is available as a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) or a Hydrogen Fuel-cell model. The all-electric Clarity EV was discontinued last year. Both options offer superior fuel efficiency and range but with different modes of operation. Whichever model suits you best, the new Clarity is a roomy, stylish family-sized sedan perfect for commuting and weekend adventures.

The 2021 Honda Clarity plug-in hybrid (PHEV) offers both hybrid gas and electric diving with 42 combined mpg and a 47-mile all-electric range*. Most people could drive to work and back each day using little to no gasoline! Just charge your Clarity in the evening and enjoy zero-emission driving in the morning. Once the battery gets depleted, the Honda Clarity PHEV seamlessly switches to hybrid gas/electric driving and still gets incredible gas mileage. Overall, the maximum range is 340 miles on one full tank and battery charge, with 110 MPGe* (MPGe is the combined miles per gallon of gasoline-equivalent electric rating).

The 2021 Honda Clarity Fuel Cell model refuels similarly to gas-powered cars, at the fuel station. No need to wait for your Clarity to recharge. Visit a Hydrogen Fuel station and pump your Honda full of new hydrogen fuel. It only takes a few minutes, and you get up to 360 miles combined range with 68 MPGe**. Unlike gas-powered vehicles, the Clarity Fuel Cell produces zero emissions. The Hydrogen Fuel only emits water vapor as it is converted into electricity, powering the vehicle.

One downside to the fuel cell model is the limited availability of refueling stations. Fuel cell vehicles are cutting-edge technology, and many states are not yet equipped with fuel stations. Here in California, however, there is a large Hydrogen Fuel network. Plus, Honda gives you up to $15,000 of hydrogen fuel with a three-year lease!

Both models of the 2021 Honda Clarity have roomy front seats, a sleek, streamlined design profile, and a laser-welded aluminum body for a light-yet-strong vehicle that maximizes safety. The plug-in hybrid Honda Clarity comes in two trims – standard and Touring – or as the Honda Clarity Fuel Cell. The base Honda Clarity plug-in hybrid features:

  • 8” touchscreen
  • Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™
  • Heated front seats
  • LED head- and taillights
  • Automatic dimming rearview mirror
  • 60/40 split fold-down rear seatback
  • Dual-zone climate control
  • 8-speaker audio system
  • Honda LaneWatch™

Upgrade to the Honda Clarity Touring and get:

  • Perforated leather-trimmed seats
  • Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Power driver’s and passenger seats

The 2021 Honda Clarity Fuel Cell is much like the Touring but with a few more luxurious features, including:

  • Rain-sensing automatic windshield wipers
  • Premium 12-speaker audio system with subwoofer
  • Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ with Honda HD Digital Traffic and Hydrogen Refueling Station
  • Locator
  • Heated side mirrors
  • Sound insulated cabin
  • Head-Up Display

All new 2021 Honda Clarity models come equipped with the Honda Sensing® suite of safety features, which includes:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System
  • Road Departure Mitigation System
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow
  • Lane Keeping Assist
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Forward Collision Warning

If you prefer the ease of simply filling up at the station and want a truly zero-emissions vehicle, the Honda Clarity Fuel Cell is the green option. There’s no need to spend time waiting to recharge, and you get your first $15,000 of fuel, free! If you travel outside of California, live in an area without Hydrogen Fuel stations, or want the freedom to choose, the Honda Clarity PHEV may be a better option. It is an eco-friendly and economical choice with great fuel efficiency, EV driving range, and a lower price point. Both models offer a similar drive feel, overall driving range and style. The Clarity plug-in hybrid does have slightly more cargo room.
