Honda Clarity Electric: Ugly EV with limited availability, short range axed

Tesla makes them beautiful and sells boatloads of EVs, Honda made the Clarity Electric butt ugly with a short range, and now it’s axed. Surprised?

Available only for lease ($199-$269 per month) in California and Oregon, the Honda Clarity Electric was a compliance car with an anxiety causing 80mi (129km) range from its 25.5kWh battery.

Honda America has confirmed to Green Car Reports the Clarity Electric was discontinued at the end of the 2019 model year and won’t be coming back.

Both the Clairty Hydrogen and Clarity Plug-in Hybrid remain on sale for the 2020 model year. The Hydrogen Clarity is restricted to California where there are a few hydrogen stations to use, and the Plug-in Hybrid is available to order in all 50 states, but is only stocked in dealerships in (you guessed it!) California.
