Honda will add battery-electric and plug-in hybrid electric cars to its Clarity nameplate, and plans to show the new vehicles at the New York auto show in April.
The Clarity Plug-In and Clarity Electric would join the existing 2017 Clarity Fuel Cell in the automaker's alternative-fuel lineup. Honda will show the vehicles at the show, which begins April 14. The vehicles will help Honda achieve its goal of two-thirds of its sales from electrified vehicles by 2030, according to the automaker.
The Clarity Electric will arrive as a mid-size, five-passenger battery electric vehicle, while the Clarity Plug-in Hybrid will launch in 50 states as the volume leader. It will offer an electric driving range rating of at least 40 miles.
