Honda Clarity Brief History

Honda Clarity Brief History

Honda Clarity was initially launched as a hydrogen fuel-cell electric vehicle in 2008. After successfully building a great reputation in this market, Honda launched the battery-electric and plug-in hybrid electric version in 2017 to beat its competitors. Due to the US leases for fuel-cell variants, the production of Honda Clarity was discontinued in August 2021.

Evolution of Honda Clarity

Honda has launched two different generations of Honda Clarity since 2008 that have successfully dominated the market with their outstanding fuel efficiency rating.

First Generation (2008-2014)

Honda Clarity first generation

The first generation Honda Clarity was launched as a hydrogen fuel-cell electric vehicle in 2008. It became quite popular because it was the first vehicle of this category available for retail customers. It was mainly launched for Southern California’s users because there were several hydrogen fuel stations available at that time.

Second Generation (2016-2021)

Honda Clarity second generation

Second Generation Honda Clarity was launched as a plug-in hybrid and battery-electric vehicle in the U.S. The Clarity Fuel-Cell was the only Zero-emission vehicle that provided the highest EPA driving range rating.
