Honda Clarity electric sedan discontinued

This electric car debuted back in 2017 at the New York Auto Show. The novelty was positioned as the first affordable electric car that can accommodate five passengers.

Honda has decided to stop production of its Clarity electric car, while the brand is not going to refuse models on fuel cells and hybrids, reports USA Today. The company had high hopes for a sedan with zero emissions, but the novelty was not particularly interested in buyers. The “problem” place of the electric car was a small range – only 143 kilometers. It was provided by a 25.5 kWh battery. Customers, on the other hand, expected higher performance in terms of range from the electric car.

Honda Clarity EV was the only electric car brand in the US car market. At the same time, the electric sedan from Honda had a noticeable advantage: it was the first electric car of the brand that supports fast charging. Replenishing energy reserves of up to 80 percent was possible in just 30 minutes.

The Clarity family was represented by hybrid and all-electric versions, as well as modifications to the fuel cells.
