Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Buying Tips

What you must know before buying the Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor - February 5, 2020
  • 2020 Clarity Plug-In Hybrid is available
  • Up to $4,000 off (select states)
  • Finance: No financing deals
  • Lease: From $389/mo. (select states)

Primarily stocked in California:

The carryover 2019 Clarity Plug-In Hybrid is still available and has a few offers, but they are not enough to overcome its high pricing. Stock is limited, but the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid is easiest to find in California. You can get it in other states, but you may need to special order it.

The 2020 Clarity Plug-In Hybrid is arriving now, but it has no offers yet.

Unlike the 89-mile Clarity Electric, which is only available to lease, you can purchase the plug-in hybrid from $34,355. It's not the cheapest plug-in, but you get built-in tech like automatic emergency braking at no extra charge.

Current offers are available regionally and end March 2, 2020. The deals listed here are available in California and other zero-emissions states, as mentioned. We may see a few new offers for the Presidents' Day holiday.

Unadvertised incentive:

The 2019 Clarity Plug-In benefits from a $4,000 unadvertised dealer cash incentive in California and other zero-emission states. Honda passes incentives like this to its dealerships to do with as they please. They can pass it on to buyers to reduce pricing or pocket it for added profit. Because of this uncertainty, we suggest shopping around for the best deals.

This offer is on top of $1,000 California Clean Vehicle Rebate (CVRP) and the up to $7,500 federal tax incentive.

Other than the CVRP and tax incentive, there are no cash offers for the 2020 Clarity Plug-In Hybrid.

Buyers cannot combine this unadvertised cash offer with any other cash offers listed below.

No APR offers:

The 2019 Clarity Plug-In continues without promotional financing offers. Check with a dealership near you to see if there are local financing deals. It does, however, offer $4,000 in finance cash if you secure a loan through Honda and live in a zero-emissions state.

Buyers cannot combine the Clarity Plug-In's finance cash with any other cash offers.

There are no APR offers on the 2020 Clarity Plug-In Hybrid.

Lease from $389 per month:

Honda offers promotional lease offers on the 2019 Clarity Plug-In Hybrid in zero-emission states only. The base 2019 Clarity Plug-In's 36-month lease offer runs for $389 per month with $2,999 due at signing.

With an effective monthly cost of $472, this is not a good value for its $34,330 MSRP.

The Touring trim is an extra $40 per month and requires $3,799 down. This adds up to a $535 monthly effective cost, making it a bad value relative to its MSRP.

There are no promotional lease deals listed in non-zero-emissions states. There are also no promotional lease deals on the 2020 Clarity Plug-In Hybrid.

2020 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid: Model Preview

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor - January 17, 2020

Model Preview

The Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid arrived in 2017, and with it still so fresh and a being low-demand vehicle, it continues into 2020 mostly unchanged.

When the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid arrived in 2017, it rolled in with striking looks that demanded attention. The 2020 model rolls in with the same eye-grabbing look that includes a bold chrome grille insert that flows into the headlights, L-shaped LED accent lights, pronounced rear haunches, partial rear wheel skirts, and clear taillights. The only change to the outside is a new sound profile for the Acoustic Vehicle Alert System, which emits a low-volume sound while the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid travels at low speeds. This helps alert others on the road that this whisper-quiet plug-in hybrid is on its way.

Inside, Clarity Plug-In Hybrid takes on a much from mainstream design with a clean dash setup that includes tasteful metallic accents, a large touchscreen, a push-button transmission, and other bits you’d see on any other sedan. Only its eco-focused gauges give the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid away as an advanced green sedan. We expect this straightforward design to carry on unchanged into the 2020 Clarity Plug-In Hybrid.

Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid

There are also no changes under the 2020 Clarity Plug-In Hybrid’s hood, so it continues with a 1.4-liter four-cylinder gasoline generator and Honda’s two-motor hybrid system that deliver a combined 212 horsepower. The electric motor draws 47 all-electric miles from its 17-kilowatt-hour battery. Once you deplete the battery, the gasoline generator kicks in to push its combined range to 340 miles.

The NHTSA and IIHS have not tested the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid, but Honda equips it with standard forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-keep assist, blind-spot monitors, and adaptive cruise.

Pricing & Release Date

The 2020 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid is rolling into showrooms now.

Its prices range from $34,355 to $37,555 (destination fees included).

This funky plug-in hybrid competes with the Hyundai Ionic Plug-In Hybrid, Toyota Prius Prime, and Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid.
