Recharging on Your Schedule: Clarity PHEV drivers will be able to recharge their vehicle using either Level 1 or Level 2 charging. Level 1 charging—which requires a 120-volt power outlet, a common feature in most homes—fully charges the Clarity overnight or in about 12 hours. Level 2 charging is available at more than 30,000 locations nationwide; when you’re plugged in to one of these 240-volt sources, the Clarity can fill up in just 2.5 hours.

Driving Modes: Clarity drivers will be able to shift between ECON, HV, Normal, and Sport Modes. ECON mode allows the Clarity to use less energy, and when in HV mode, the Clarity can recuperate up to 50% of its all-electric range. Normal mode provides a balance of responsiveness and efficiency that’s perfect for daily driving, while Sport mode fully engages the Clarity’s 1.5-Liter engine to improve handling, acceleration, and more.


HondaLink Compatibility: The HondaLink smartphone app can do it all. Once you’ve synced your Clarity with a compatible smartphone, you’ll access vehicle information guides, check your power levels, find your parking spot, and even find Level 2 charging stations on the go! On Touring models, HondaLink also allows you to set your cabin temperature with Remote Climate Pre-Conditioning.
