Shop Genuine Honda Clarity Electric Parts with HondaPartsNow.com
The Honda Clarity Electric, part of Honda's Clarity series, is a battery-electric vehicle (BEV) that was announced in April 2016 and was in production until the end of 2019. Known for its lightweight design, high-quality construction, and comfortable five-seater cabin, the Clarity Electric stood out as a well-equipped, user-friendly EV. However, it was only available in a single trim level. Its power comes from a 161 hp motor and a 221 lb-ft torque, supplemented by a relatively small 25.5-kWh lithium-ion battery pack offering a range of 89 miles (143 km). This range, while decent, lags behind other current EV models. Clarity Electric was primarily leased in California and Oregon, but wasn't directly sold to individual buyers. Charging was facilitated via a CCS Type 1 combo port that accepted the J1772 plug for AC charging, with a full charge taking around 3.5 hours with a 240V AC charger or 19 hours with a standard 120V US wall outlet. The Clarity Electric was Honda's first EV to feature fast charging, able to charge up to 80% in just 30 minutes. Despite this, the vehicle provided a relatively modest 71.2 miles (114.5 km) of range in 30 minutes. Following the discontinuation of the Clarity Electric, Honda currently lacks an EV offering for the North American market.
The Honda Clarity Electric, despite its less powerful profile compared to other models in the Clarity lineup, has a loyal customer base owing to its fine-driving and well-equipped features. However, owners should be aware of common problems such as battery and transmission failures. Battery issues can cause discharge, trouble starting the vehicle, or excessive idling; maintaining the alternator, ignition starter, and battery can mitigate these problems. Frequent in Honda models, transmission failures can manifest as strange sounds, gear shifting difficulties, or transmission slips; inspecting the shift cable, release bearing, and clutch master cylinder can help detect and address these issues. Despite these challenges, keeping the Clarity Electric in top shape requires diligent attention to both auto parts and accessories prone to wear and tear. Regular maintenance of wheel locks, armrest, cabin air filter, antenna, and car mirror can enhance the driving experience. While wheel locks protect the tires from theft, the armrest provides comfort, the air filter ensures a fresh cabin environment, the antenna adds flair, and the car mirror bolsters safety.
