Over the last few years, automakers have been making great strides in electric and hybrid technology for vehicles as well as semi-autonomous driver-assist features. Honda has long been at the forefront here, engineering intelligent and reliable technology and vehicles. Honda continues this tradition in 2018 with the all-new Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid, which offers state-of-the-art hybrid technology. If you’re looking for an eco-friendly vehicle with advanced features and technology, we at Floyd Traylor Honda think that the 2018 Clarity Plug-In Hybrid offers you everything you could want.
The 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid is designed and engineered to compete with the very best hybrid and electric vehicles available. It offers a 47-mile all-electric range,* surpassing the Prius’ 25-mile range, which is perfect for the daily commute or running errands. If you plan on driving for longer distances, the gas engine will kick in and offer you a combined driving range of 340 miles.**
In addition to advanced hybrid technology, the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid is also equipped with advanced safety and entertainment technology as well. It offers Honda’s suite of advanced safety and driver assist features, Honda Sensing®, as standard. This suite includes the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS), Road Departure Mitigation System (RDMS), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), and Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS). The CMBS system will help you brake the vehicle if it detects a vehicle that lies ahead of you on the road, and the Lane Keeping Assist System will help keep you safely within your own lane. These features will give you confidence and peace of mind on the road so you can and enjoy the Honda Clarity’s entertainment features. The infotainment system comes with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility, which allows you to seamlessly connect your smartphone system’s screen for easy navigation and convenient access to your music, messages, GPS navigation, and more.

The 2018 Honda Clarity is the new kid on the block, and it’s here to revolutionize the plug-in hybrid segment.
