The upcoming 2019 Honda Clarity will improve all of its engines. This sedan can compete with vehicles that use conventional drivetrain. It is luxurious and clean. The design is futuristic thanks to the electric engine. Well, this kind of unit doesn’t need classic grille and ventilation. The car could add more agility and speed to be more competitive for the next season.
All in all, the 2019 Honda Clarity will be one of the most exciting models of the lineup. We already got used to conventional sedans. But, if you haven’t tried an electric vehicle with a fuel cell, then Clarity will make the right impression. We won’t get too much power out of its units. But the range of 340 miles between refueling could be decisive while purchasing the next sedan.
2019 Honda Clarity Plug-in Hybrid
Under the hood of the 2019 Honda Clarity Plug-in Hybrid will be the same petrol engine as the year before. In 2018, the car got a new system. It was the combination of 1.5-liter four-cylinder petrol engine and electric batteries. This system is good for a range of 340 miles and we won’t see too many changes here. All four drive modes will be there again. Drivers will select either normal, Econ, Sport, or HV. The 2019 Clarity Plug-in version is good for 212 hp and 330 lb-ft of torque. Electric mileage is 110 MPGe.
2019 Honda Clarity Electric
Besides the Plug-in Hybrid model, the 2019 Honda Clarity will use pure electric motors. It is a lithium-ion battery good for 90 miles of range. However, it will need only three hours to fully recharge and run again. It is possible via fast-charging stations with 240V outlets. This drivetrain is capable to deliver 160 horses and 220 pound-feet of torque.
2019 Honda Clarity Fuel Cell
The 2019 Honda Clarity Fuel Cell is a futuristic concept. However, it works already. The company will add some innovations for the next edition to boost mileage. Also, the new Fuel Cell will work smoother. Refuel is going to last shorter. Now, the Clarity Fuel Cell needs three to five minutes. Furthermore, the sedan will have much better mileage than PHEV and EV. The next 2019 Clarity Fuel Cell will be closer to 400 miles. Torque is the same as for the Electric model, while the power output is 175 hp.
2019 Honda Clarity Price
Surprisingly, the 2019 Honda Clarity is not going to be more expensive than its predecessor. Without big changes, the entry-level Plug-in Hybrid version will cost around $35,000. There are many ways to make benefits from the purchase of this kind of vehicle, depending from state to state. However, Electric and Fuel Cell models you will hardly find outside of California. That is the state with a network of refueling stations. So, these versions of 2019 Honda Clarity will be sold only there with special lease offers and rebates.
2019 Honda Clarity Options
Buyers won’t be able to build their 2019 Honda Clarity with too many options. There are no trim levels, and extras include few new paintjobs. Inside, there is only one color for PHEV and EV. Fuel Cell sedan offers two types of premium leather. Honda Sensing and Navigation are optional features for Fuel Cell and Electric. Standard 18-inch wheels could be upgraded with the Accessory design. Furthermore, PHEV is the only model that is not going to offer a spoiler. Backup sensors will make parking easier.
2019 Honda Clarity Release Date
The 2019 Honda Clarity will come in the first half of the next year. All three models are going to be launched at the same time. We expect some changes in purchases of Electric and Fuel Cell versions, so these could arrive in dealerships slightly later. However, the entire lineup of the 2019 Clarity will be out by the next spring.
