If you live out West- either in California or Oregon – this one is for you. The 2018 Honda Clarity Electric, which started arriving at California and Oregon Honda dealerships last week, can be leased priced at $199 per month.
2018 Honda Clarity
The Clarity seats five and comes with Honda Sensing safety and driver-assistive technologies. The Clarity series is a Green Car Journal‘s 2018 Green Car of the Year award winner along with Edmunds‘ Most Innovative Car in its 2018 CES Tech Driven Awards.
Combined with the 2018 Accord Hybrid and the 2019 Insight, the Clarity Fuel Cell, Clarity Electric and Clarity Plug-in Hybrid are all part of the next generation of Honda vehicles.
The brand’s goal is to make two-thirds of global sales through electric vehicles by 2030.
$199 Lease Details
The $199 pricing details apply to a 36-month lease. Taxes are not included. It includes an allowance of 20,000 miles per year and 24/7 roadside assistance. The lease also reflects a built-in federal tax credit. It requires $1,499 due at signing (not including tax, registration or additional fees).
“We’re upping the ante on both premium appeal and affordability with the 2018 Honda Clarity Electric,” said Steven Center, vice president of Connected and Environmental Business Development at American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “At $199 a month, Clarity Electric consumers will not only get a very affordable zero-emissions driving experience, they’ll also enjoy a level of premium quality and driving refinement.
In addition, consumers from California or Oregon may qualify for state rebates of $2,500. The Clarity Electric is also eligible for California-issued Clean Air Vehicle Stickers that provide single occupant HOV access.
Clarity EV Charging
You can charge a Clarity Electric battery up to 80 percent in 30 minutes with DC Fast Charging. Level 2 charging gives Clarity Electric drivers the option to charge their battery in just 3.5 hours using a 240-volt charger. The Clarity Electric has an EPA fuel economy rating of 126/103/114 MPGe (city/highway/combined) and an 89-mile EPA range rating on a full charge.
