Discover the Futuristic 2017 Honda Clarity Powertrain Options

April 28th, 2016 by

2017 Honda ClarityBoulder and Denver drivers will be thrilled to hear that Honda has revealed some details about the upcoming 2017 Honda Clarity powertrain options. This impressive vehicle is already able to promise incredible efficiency thanks to its hydrogen fuel cell powertrain, but we can now expect plug-in hybrid and fully Electric Vehicle (EV) variants to appear on the market in the next two years.

Honda’s Hydrogen Development

Honda has been pushing for hydrogen power for years now, a move that is fueled by a desire to offer drivers across the globe a combination of confident power and strong efficiency ratings.

Of course, hydrogen power is more advantageous for Americans who live in an area of the country that boasts plenty of refueling stations, so it only makes sense for Honda to roll out multiple powertrain options for the Clarity.

As stated by John Mendel, Honda of America Executive Vice President: “The Clarity series will occupy a unique position in the market, providing customers with a well-equipped, premium, midsize vehicle with a range of ultra-low-carbon powertrain options to suit their lifestyle needs.”

Upcoming 2017 Honda Clarity Powertrain Options

The Honda Clarity that is set for release this year is set to be one of the most revolutionary vehicles around. It is able to produce electricity by converting hydrogen from an onboard fuel tank and oxygen from the air surrounding the vehicle — that electricity then provides eco-friendly power. If it sounds dangerous, don’t worry. Honda’s finest engineers have ensured that hydrogen fuel tanks are secured in the subframe in order to meet the highest global safety standards.

Beyond the fuel cell option, Boulder and Denver drivers can expect to be able to get behind the wheel of a Clarity Electric by 2017. Eventually, a Clarity Plug-In Hybrid will be available.

Honda Continues to Push Automotive Technology Towards the Future

Honda was the first manufacturer to release a gasoline-electric hybrid car in America, and they’ve let us know that they expect two out of every three vehicles sold to be either a hybrid, plug-in hybrid, or battery electric car by 2030.
