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.
Deceleration Paddle Shifters
Steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters allow you to control the rate of deceleration by simulating engine braking, helping to recharge the battery through regenerative braking.
The Clarity is a hyper-efficient car rated at an impressive blended electric/gasoline fuel consumption of 2.1 Le/100 km, putting it at the top of its class.
When plugged in at 240 volts, the electric motor in the Clarity can be fully recharged in as little as 2.5 hours.
