At the end of last month, sales of the mid-size Japanese sedan Honda Clarity PHEV were 2,770 copies – this is about the US car market. In total, last year 18,602 units of this model were sold.

Believe it or not, but for the first time in a long time, the eco-friendly Japanese model, the Honda Clarity PHEV, topped the plug-in hybrid car sales rating. For those who do not know, plug-in hybrid cars are hybrid vehicles equipped with both an internal combustion engine and an electric motor powered by high-capacity batteries. These batteries can be recharged from a conventional household power grid.

So, in December last year, official dealers of Honda sold 2,770 units of the mid-size Clarity PHEV sedan. Thus, this result was able to beat all sales figures for similar cars offered in the US market.

The Clarity climb to the top of the eco-friendly “Olympus” took place shortly after the Chevrolet automotive brand announced the discontinuation of serial production of the all-electric Volt model. Now, when Volt sales are declining, the only real competitor to the Japanese Clarity PHEV is its “countryman” – a hybrid Toyota Prius sedan in the Prime version. Sales of Prius Prime in December last year amounted to 2,759 units, 11 less than the Clarity PHEV.

 At the end of 2018, the total sales of the Honda Clarity PHEV is 18,602 copies. Honda Clarity is available in three different versions. There is the aforementioned plug-in hybrid plugin, which is the most popular car. In addition, Honda also offers a purely electric version of the model, as well as a performance on hydrogen fuel cells.
