2018 Honda Clarity Hybrid Leads in All-Electric Range Ratings

With EPA range rating of 47 miles/charge, Honda’s 2018 Clarity Plug-in Hybrid has received the highest all-electric range rating among midsize plug-in hybrids.1  The hybrid will be released later in the year.

Or do these devices provide electricity that is of such low quality, because of its intermittency and other factors, that we should recognize the need for supporting services associated with actually putting the […]
