The Clarity Plug-In Hybrid generates electric power with an AC Permanent-Magnet Synchronous Electric Motor using a 17 kWh lithium-ion battery. By itself, the motor produces 181 horsepower and 232 lb-ft of torque. Powerful and long-lasting, the battery life is sufficient enough to cover most drivers’ commutes without using a drop of fuel.
Unlike other electric vehicles, the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid has an efficient hybrid engine that takes over when the battery starts to wane. It can take drivers long past the limits and mile ranges of the battery, while still offering incredible fuel efficiency. And with the engine and motor working together in this hybrid system, the Clarity achieves a total system horsepower of 212.
Working in tandem with the engine and motor is an Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission (E-CVT). It expertly transfers the power generated under the hood and delivers it to the wheels, contributing to the overall efficiency of the Clarity’s powertrain. The transmission also features a Sport Mode and Deceleration Paddle Selectors, making your driving experience with the Clarity engaging and fun.
