We know what you are thinking. Go ahead and admit it. You’re thinking that this is just another one of the latest plug-in hybrid vehicles to hit the market that either a) is so tiny you can only fit yourself and maybe one other person in it, and/or b) it’s another plug-in hybrid that needs to be recharged after a one-mile trip to the convenience store down the road.
Well, we’re happy to announce that neither of those preconceived notions are correct when it comes to the Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid.
Let’s start with the space factor. This vehicle will easily accommodate five, that’s right FIVE, passengers. Honda knows that there is a market out there for a plug-in hybrid that actually serves as a family-friendly passenger sedan. The trunk space in the Honda Clarity is rather impressive as well.
As for driving range, let’s just say that the Honda engineers kept this in mind, also. Yes, it’s true that running on only the electric mode alone has a limited range, but when you factor in the hybrid mode that the Clarity offers you’ve got tons of driving time to navigate the roads around Clifton, Passaic, and Paramus, NJ.
Here’s another factor you’re going to love about the Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid: it doesn’t look like something out of a B-grade science fiction movie. The Clarity actually borrows a large dose of its exterior styling from the legendary Accord midsized sedan. You wouldn’t be able to even tell by looking at it that it is one of the most fuel efficient and cleanest vehicles on the road today.
The Clarity is also backed by the quality, dependability, and reliability of the Honda brand. That means you are getting a vehicle that’s built for the long haul and one that is going to maximize the investment you have put your hard-earned money into.

Honda keeps it simple when it comes to choices in the 2018 Clarity Plug-in Hybrid lineup with just two trims to choose from: Plug-In Hybrid (base) and Touring. Each one comes packed with amazing standard features including an 8-inch touchscreen plus the Honda Sensing safety package. Honda Sensing is a comprehensive suite of driver assistance features that includes Collision Mitigation Braking System, Road Departure Mitigation System, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Lane Keeping Assist System.
As far as power is concerned, you’ve got two elements at work with the 2018 Clarity Plug-In Hybrid. First, there is an electric motor that is capable of generating 181 horsepower and 232 lb-ft torque. There is also a 1.5L I-4 gasoline engine that can be used for driving and that’s also responsible for re-charging the battery pack in the vehicle. With a car like this, fuel efficiency numbers are obviously outstanding.
Go with the Touring trim in the lineup and you’ll enjoy a premium interior experience, as well. This model comes standard with leather trimmed seating, remote climate pre-conditioning, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and Honda satellite-linked navigation system.
The Clarity nameplate is used by the Honda brand to denote its lineup of alternative fuel vehicles. The name was originally used on only hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles, but expanded when the automaker released its Honda Clarity Electric and Honda Clarity Plug-in Hybrid models.
While no dealership can make the claim that they are your “hybrid headquarters,” Garden State Honda certainly works hard to achieve this designation. We carry a great selection of the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid along with every other new Honda model in the automaker’s portfolio. We also have a variety of purchase and lease specials at our dealership designed to save you big money.
