Intermediate Car Segment 2020 Average: 175.9 g/km CO2

When it comes to reducing our carbon footprint, we’re not just serious – we’re driven. See the Clarity trim highlights section below for emissions ratings.

Plug-in hybrid powertrain.

As a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) with a full-parallel hybrid powertrain, the Clarity can run on a gasoline internal combustion engine, an electric motor, or both.

Driving range.

The Clarity has a class-leading, all-electric, zero-emission range (AER) of up to 76 km*. For longer trips, the 1.5-litre Atkinson cycle 4-cylinder gasoline engine is designed to work with the electric motor, enabling a combined electric/hybrid driving range of up to 547 km*.

Fuel economy.

The Clarity is a hyper-efficient vehicle, with a blended electric/gasoline fuel consumption of 2.1 L/100 km. And even without the electric motor, the vehicle would be highly efficient, as the 1.5-litre Atkinson cycle gasoline engine is rated at an impressive 5.6 L/100 km (combined city/highway).

Easily rechargeable.

When plugged in at 240 volts, the electric motor in the Clarity can be fully recharged in as little as 2.5 hours*.


Driving performance is enhanced with a hyper-efficient 1.5-liter Atkinson cycle 4-cylinder engine, along with an electric motor that produces 181-horsepower and 232 lb.-ft. of torque* for a combined total of 212 hp*.

Selectable driving modes.

Three driving modes – Normal, Econ, and Sport – allow you to customize your driving experience, increasing efficiency or driving performance. In addition, Hybrid (HV) mode can be selected in conjunction with each mode in order to help maintain the battery’s state of charge.

Eco Assist™ system.

With the ECON mode activated, the Clarity helps improve efficiency by adjusting the climate control system and accelerator pedal. Colour-coded bars on the dash provide feedback on your driving style, giving you even more control over efficiency.

Eco Drive display.

The Eco Drive display helps you improve your driving efficiency with a simple-to-follow visual display of the Clarity’s real-time performance.
