Honda Clarity EV
Body Type = Sedan
The tried and true sedan. Sedans, or saloons as they're called in the UK, are generally four-door cars with a flat trunk, unlike estates or hatchbacks. Most EVs produced are in the sedan body style.
Drive Train = FWD
Front Wheel Drive or FWD for short means the car's drivetrain is delivered by the front axel of the car. Cars that are FWD are generally more nimble and responsive which suits body styles like crossovers and hatchbacks. FWD cars generally get better mileage (EV or Gas/Petrol) which makes them popular in Europe or areas where roads are narrow and fuel is expensive.

Honda Clarity EV Overview

What Separates Honda Clarity EV

Being a brand new range by an established brand this is promising to be an SUV of a mid-size with low to average performance and a price probably too high for now.

Despite boasting a considerably better specs than many other established mall and mid size EVs, the lack of features even directly compared to the lesser of 2 75 kwh variant as this one had many specs boosted make Honda Clarity EV but due to some seriously lackluster specs such as range barely an entry level option especially considering its price. Though it centers on being an all-around car offering some sufficient metrics – it is grossly overpriced compared to what it has to offer – especially directly compared to though a tad bigger yet similar Tesla Model 3 or Model X.

Still obviouly to see how exactly good it is compared to other EVs on the market and other variants of cheaper tiers, it is crucial to see specific metrics. Based on that the comparison between the Honda e differences with other variants in the range come down to acceleration, the electric range, charging time and additional minor ones looking pretty major nevertheless. Kind of median at barely acceptably low measley underperforming 8 seconds getting from 0 to 6o miles – staying ways below the standard on the market by some good measure yet it has a cost advantage over it. Fortunately besides that it stays above to what some other EV SUVs deliver it is in the neighbourhood of EPA certified electric range of horrifying 48 miles. This range will make probably make even in-city work home commutes an isse bar anything else.

Speaking on its charging capabilities this range does deliver a fairly quick result. It is capable of going from 0 to 80 in under half and hour and 0 to 100 % in approximately 5 hours.

About The Clarity EV
The Honda e Range After the immense successs the innovative Tesla Model S range has had back in 2012 it sent such shockwaves throughout the whole auto market that other big old established players have realized that there is now indeed a viable personal use EV market and it is huge. Coming a little bit later into the game than most other established brands, still Honda made sure to firstly try out their EV prowess with the Honda Clarity as a prelaunch to the 2020 updated edition of it called the Honda e range. So similar to how many big established brands like Audi and BMW that decide to branch out its EV production and its ranges to include different car types from CUV hatchbacks to SUVs and sports cars, this new range will both include the preceding 5-door sedan Clarity and a smaller 4-door subcompact hatchback too. So while its performance and comforta are all pretty high and beats out even some more established mid-size EVs on the market based on a very high price being a first range this is not a top-of-the-line yet a more of a mid level of the market. Surely targeting both casual EV fans and newbies to the EV market looking to keep most power and performance features yet lose out on a price due to novelty of the brand on the first EV car, the Honda e range is meant to be more of a personal use or a small family car more than anything due to obvious size limits. Still it was the range that inserted and kept Honda in the conversation. While surely being in the game of competing with the market leader Tesla, it is crucial to compare the Honda e range to that brand both in terms of specs and looks. So comparing how technically and technologically, not even mentioning comfort wise did this range get to Tesla it might be a quite so close call. With its FWD with 1 to 2 motors depending on the specific variant of the range it is definitely most comparable to Tesla Model Y or Tesla Model 3 as a similar class-performance option. Mentioning the looks as well - we can say that just like Tesla, Honda has gone the chic route and made its range look like less of a generic mini car with features pretty much as simplified and stylish vibe as it only gets. Its updated range has both a somewhat minimalistic futuristic body form as a sedan and a very minimalistic yet stylish interior finsh with some premium options. We all know the looks and design are very important for any car range for sure, the specs and performance are truly everything. Based on just judging the Honda e range on the merit of it specs and metrics, let's take a look at the fact that depending on the variant its European certified (which means US EPA will be even smaller)  electric range and acceleration vary, as it starts o to 60 at kind of low yet somewhat still acceptable 8.8 seconds which is not much at all. Unfortunately where it is kind of average to lackluster in terms of max speed or acceleration or other show-off features, it also does not gain in range to improve the impression. More power and performance metrics that make it truly stand out from the rest, including the ever so important for EVs range. This tranlsates to when the journey has already begun, it will deliver you as far as the official EPA rated range of up to 138 mi without a single recharge definitely seems like a barrier for some buyers. This means that avid out of the city and interstate travelers will not be very likely to grace it with their attention but it works for most average traveling in between. It easily can be categotized as somewhar lower priced than a few other smal sized EVs, which might make buyers or people new to the EV world ignore a lack of some things other top-of-the-line ranges in or close to its size class like Tesla Model Y or other offer at a higher cost. Be sure to check out its multiple top features such as:
  • High-resolution touchscreen

  • Upmarket cabin interior
  • Class-high cargo volume

  • Driver-assistance features
that combined make for a very satifsfying feeling when inside it on the road.
