Honda today announced that the all-new Clarity Plug-in Hybrid and Honda Clarity Electric will make their worldwide debut at the 2017 New York International Auto Show.
Complementing the announcement is the release of the official teaser sketch of the never-before-seen Clarity Plug-in Hybrid and Clarity Electric which are flanking the currently available Clarity Fuel Cell.

Inside, the Clarity series boasts spacious interiors outfitted with premium, environmentally-responsible materials. The Clarity series also features Display Audio with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, as well as the standard Honda Sensing safety and driver-assistive technologies.
Accoding to Honda, the Clarity Electric will be the first affordable, midsize, five-passenger battery electric vehicle (BEV).
The Clarity Plug-in Hybrid on the other hand, which combines an all-electric driving range rating in excess of 64 km with a hyper-efficient extended range mode, is projected to be a volume leader in the series in market like the US.
