I glanced the article quickly but I don't think they mention if the clarity can do highway speeds on electric only like the Volt.HN12345 wrote: ↑Nov 10th, 2017 7:43 amHere's a good article in Sept. about the Honda Clarity vs. Chevy Volt.
2018 Honda Clarity PHEV Could Be The Chevy Volt’s Strongest Competitor Yet
Things of note, the Clarity will only take 2.5 hrs to charge on 240V whereas the Volt takes 4.5 hrs. The Clarity is also a lot roomier and with nicer interior refinements, but my main peeve is still the stupid semi-covered wheel to remind us of the ugly Honda Insight from the past. Don't they realize that customers want their EVs looking as normal as possible? The Clarity will also likely cost a couple of thousand more than the Volt.
The ugly exterior design is likely a deal-killer for me though. What a shame because this car has potential based on the technological specs and quality interior but too many odd looking exterior curves and again the stupid rear wheel partial cover. The designers were trying too hard to make it as aerodynamic as possible while sacrificing the looks.
What's behind the Clarity's quirky looks?

This study only applies to electricity generated by dirty sources. It's already been debunked on a state-by-state comparison.tcharged wrote: ↑Nov 12th, 2017 11:31 pmhttp://driving.ca/auto-news/news/motor- ... -emissions
The study cited for the Tesla batteries has also been debunked.Based on where EVs have been bought to-date, the average EV in the US now produces emissions equivalent to a hypothetical gasoline car achieving 73 MPG.
Nearly half of the EVs sold to date have gone to California, where the average EV produces global warming emissions equal to a 95 MPG gasoline car. The next 5 states for EV sales (Georgia, Washington, New York, Florida, and Texas) account for 20 percent of US EV sales and are regions that have emissions ratings of 50 MPG or better.
At this point, even the dirtiest coal plants producing electricity at scale are cleaner than burning fossil fuels locally in a vehicle.The study's finding of 8.2 years is "based on a series of assumptions." To get to that figure, two of those assumptions must have been that the internal-combustion vehicle in question gets great mileage and isn't driven very much. Oh, and while battery production incurs a carbon footprint in these statistics, the gasoline in the study magically appears in your tank and the only carbon emitted is from burning it (that is, the calculations ignore the carbon emissions created by producing and moving large quantities of gasoline). Those are nifty assumptions.
"Prager University" is a right-wing non-profit with about as much credibility as Trump University.

Thanks for the grammar correction chief. You got me, English is not my first language.
