The 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid, the only version distributed nationally, is spacious, comfortable, competitively priced, and offers excellent electric range.

Pros
Comfortable mid-size sedan
Well-equipped for the price
Smooth, quiet ride
High plug-in hybrid range rating
Zero emissions for 2 of 3 models

Cons
Strange, bulbous proportions
Fuel Cell model tethered to hydrogen stations
Low range of Electric version
Only Plug-In version has five seats
Can Honda explain plug-in hybrids?

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The 2018 Honda Clarity range now includes plug-in hybrid and electric versions that join the Clarity Fuel Cell.Among the three versions, the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid easily makes the strongest case for itself. And among the two trim levels, we say stick with the base one and forgo the Touring trim's leather seats and navigation. Options are limited to accessory items, except for the rear parking sensors that we'd suggest adding.

PROS
Comfortable, well-appointed cabin seats five people
Solid driving range in all versions except Clarity Electric
Pleasant ride quality in electric and plug-in hybrid versions

CONS
Polarizing styling
Limited availability of all but Clarity Plug-In Hybrid
Touchscreen infotainment system can be cumbersome to use
