What is the driving range on the Honda Clarity Electric?
The Clarity Electric received an EPA combined driving-range rating of 340 miles on a single charge. Your range will vary depending on driving conditions, how you drive and maintain your vehicle, battery age/condition, and other factors such as vehicle load and weather.
How do I maximize the range on the Honda Clarity Electric?
The Clarity Electric features energy-smart climate control technologies, an efficient Heat Pump, eco mode, and multiple levels of regeneration to help maximize driving range.
Will using accessories like the heater, air conditioner or sound system affect my driving range.
The air conditioner and heater consume energy from the high-voltage battery, causing the range to decrease. Also, turning off the air conditioner or heater when not needed will help manage the high voltage battery and increase your driving range.
Are there any functions in the car to help me maximize my battery range?
Yes, the Clarity Electric is equipped with several eco-coaching functions, including an ECON mode adopted from other Honda hybrid vehicles. Additionally there are user controllable regeneration levels.
What does 'MPGe' mean?
'MPGe' stands for 'miles per gallon equivalent,' where one gallon of gasoline equates to 33.7 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity. Formulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), it is the standardized way to compare the fuel efficiency of plug-in electric vehicles and hybrid vehicles to gasoline-powered vehicles. EPA ratings, e.g., MPGe and range, are based on the results of various tests.
The single-speed direct-drive transmission helps provide linear, smooth acceleration for an enhanced driving experience. The efficient design of the electric motor and lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries keep everything compact while still supplying plenty of power on-demand with zero-emissions.
