Honda has begun leasing its 2017 Clarity Electric in California and Oregon, Honda has announced.

Honda is offering the battery-electric vehicle for $269 per month for 36 moths with $1,730 due at signing. As part of the deal, lessees receive an allowance of 20,000 miles per year and around-the-clock roadside assistance. The terms reflect the federal tax credit of $7,500.

Additionally, residents of the two states can apply for a $2,500 state rebate once they become available.

The Clarity Electric is powered by a 161-horsepower (120-kilowatt) electric motor that makes 221 lb.-ft. of torque. A 25.5-kWh lithium ion battery pack can be fully charged in just over three hours at 240-volits (Level 2). With DC fast charging, the vehicle can achieve an 80% charge in 30 minutes.

The Environmental Protection Agency has rated the vehicle's range at 89 miles on a full charge.

    Clarity EV is:

    -lease only
    -a 80 mile range EV
    -at a 200 mile range price ( = a bad deal)

    Used 80 mile range Leaf EVs are selling in the $5000 price range ( 1/7th the cost of the new 200 mile range EVs).

    No, Honda's Clarity EV is a bad joke on the consumer, a compliance car, that only EV-ignorant lessees would throw their money away on.

    -If 80 mile range suits your daily-driving needs, why pay too much for this Honda?

    -If the cost is within your budget, why are you settling for only 80 mile range, when for the same money, you can get a 200+ mile EV (GM Bolt, Tesla-3, + )?
